Ubuntu: Update gitg without apt-get? Will I break something?



Question:

On Ubuntu 16.04, I installed gitg using apt-get. Running

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install gitg  

tells me that:

gitg is already the newest version (3.17.1-1).  

However, https://git.gnome.org/browse/gitg shows the latest version to be 3.26.

The installation instructions are straightfoward enough.

Can I install 3.26 directly, bypassing apt, without breaking anything? Are there any consequences down the line in doing so?


Solution:1

The only thing that could happen is that there are missing dependencies for v3.26, other then that, remember to apt-get remove gitg before installing the higher version.

If something does go wrong, which I highly doubt will, you can always reinstall the previous version.
