I’m having trouble cloning HTTPS repositories. I can successfully clone SSH repositories, but not HTTPS repositories. Because I’m behind a corporate firewall, I can’t test the GIT protocol.
This is what I’m attempting to achieve:
$ git clone https://github.com/nvie/gitflow.git Cloning into gitflow... fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'https'

This appears to be caused by not having (lib)curl-devel installed while compiling git.
If you install (lib)curl-devel, and then rebuild/install git, this should solve the problem:
$ yum install curl-devel $ # cd to wherever the source for git is $ cd /usr/local/src/git-1.7.9 $ ./configure $ make $ make install
On Centos 6.3, this worked for me.

If you’re using Ubuntu instead, follow these steps:
sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev

I addressed the problem by using “git:/” instead of “https://.” The last command I gave was:
git clone --recursive git://github.com/ceph/ceph.git
