Git Question

Jenkins could not run git

I've installed Jenkins on my mac (osx lion). But I couldn't get it work. This is the stacktrace I've got:

Answer

The solution for me was to set the git path in the Manage Jenkins > Configure System settings. In the Git section, I changed the Path to Git executable to /usr/local/bin/git.
