A complete build of gPXE requires the syslinux and mtools packages in your development environment. syslinux is required in order to create ISO images. On RedHat/Fedora systems you can install the packages by saying:

# yum install syslinux mtools

Once you have the code, you can do a complete build of gPXE using using

cd gpxe/src

This will generate bootable images for floppy disk, CD-ROM, and USB key, which is the best way to get started experimenting with gPXE.

Updating source code

To update your downloaded source tree at any time, use

This will fetch the latest changes and apply them to your tree. This command will work only if you obtained your source tree using git clone; if you downloaded a tarball then the only way to update your tree is to download a new tarball.
