On CentOS and probably other RedHat-based distributions, /etc/modprobe.d/ is the directory which contains configurations for loading kernel modules, module aliases and module blacklists, that are specific to the host, and not shipped by packages (those should go in /usr/lib/modprobe.d/.

Module configurations from both directories are read by default, unless dracut is run in generic mode.

The easy way is to use one of the utilities provided by Python's setuptools. If you don't have setuptools, you can install them with:

{% highlight bash %} sudo apt-get install python-setuptools {% endhighlight %}

...or with:

{% highlight bash %} sudo yum install python-setuptools {% endhighlight %}

... depending on your platform. You can then install GitPython with:

{% highlight bash %} sudo easy_install GitPython {% endhighlight %}

After that, it will be available for you to import and use:

{% highlight python %} import git {% endhighlight %}

{% highlight python %} import git repo = git.Repo('/home/marios/repositories/test-repo') {% endhighlight %}
