I just read a question on Stack Overflow, here.

The question starts with:

I've been somewhat "putting up" with GitHub always asking for my username and password when I clone a repository. [...]

(emphasis mine)

I searched "put up" but the result only gives:

construct or erect something.

"I put up the tent and cooked a meal"

Which doesn't seem to fit here. So what does it mean in the context?
