Git Executable setup

So I was able to use the built in GitHub configuration that is provided by Bamboo to fetch my repos and complete builds. I am now looking to expand my use of Bamboo do to the Branching and work with submodules in my project. I added Git to my build server (linux) and added that configuration to my server capabilities (/usr/bin/git). When I go back to run my basic working plans now, I am getting the following:

com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.git.GitCommandException: command /usr/bin/git ls-remote https://<username>:********@github.com/buildcom/<project>.git failed with code 139. Working directory was [.]., stderr: [])

Am I missing a setup somewhere that I need to do on the build server with Git?

So what it turned out to be was our own configuration. I needed to upgrade the GIT on my server to 1.8 and build it correctly with curl options. Once we did a proper install with all the settings, we were able to get past this issue.

That's weird - does it work if you execute that command manually?

No it does not:

-bash: !@github.com/buildcom/<project>.git: event not found

So I guess that is my root problem. Ideas? does a git ls-remote https://<username>:********@github.com/<repo>/<project>.git work for anyone else on linux?

Could it be that you're having '!' chars in your password and the Bamboo doesn't properly escape them? http://serverfault.com/questions/208265/what-is-bash-event-not-found
