This probably hasn't installed the program you thought it would. It
turns out that before Linus developed the distributed VCS called 'git'
there was already a project called the 'GNU interactive tools', or
'git'. This is what the 'git' package contains. You actually wanted
to install the 'git-core' package, which contains the dvcs.

This seems like the package misses a dependency. That should be
documented in a bug filed against the package on launchpad.net. On
the other hand, I'm don't think that installing programs through yum
is a good idea on an Ubuntu system. I may be wrong here, though. Why
do we even have that package? :)
