Issue with Riak Install from Source under SUSE SLES 11 SP11 Version S390

Hi Claude. Most git servers use port 9418. If you are able to open that port on your firewall it should work. Alternatively if you look for files in the riak directory and its subdirectories called 'rebar.config' and edit those and change the git urls to be "http://..." instead of "git://..." then it should use port 80 to clone the needed repos instead of 9418. Hopefully one of those will get you up and running. Cheers.
