-==== Download source code ====+Prebuilt gPXE images are available from [[http://​rom-o-matic.net/​]]. ​ Images can be generated from official gPXE releases or from the current development tree.  This is probably the easiest way to get started with gPXE.

 + 
 +You can browse the current development tree at [[http://​git.etherboot.org/?​p=gpxe.git]], or check out a copy using:
  
   git clone git://​git.etherboot.org/​scm/​gpxe.git   git clone git://​git.etherboot.org/​scm/​gpxe.git
  
-orif you don't have git installed you can:+To update your checked out copy at any timeuse:
  
-  ​* Download a release of gPXE from [[http://​kernel.org/​pub/​software/​utils/​boot/​gpxe]] +  git pull
-  * or download a tarball of the current development snapshot from [[http://git.etherboot.org/?​p=gpxe.git;​a=snapshot]].+
  
-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:+==== Source code (tarballs) ====
  
-  # yum install syslinux mtools+If you do not have ''​git''​ installed, you can download a tarball of the current development snapshot of gPXE from [[http://​git.etherboot.org/?​p=gpxe.git;​a=snapshot]] or, a tarball of the most recent official release from [[http://​etherboot.org/​rel/​gpxe/​]] or [[http://​kernel.org/​pub/​software/​utils/​boot/​gpxe/​]].

-  cd gpxe/src +A separate repository is kept for useful gPXE extensions and patches that have not been sufficiently tested and reviewed to be merged into gPXE mainline. See the [[staging|staging page]] if you'd like to help us test them.
-  make+
  
-This will generate bootable images for floppy disk, CD-ROM, and USB key, which is the best way to get started experimenting with gPXE.+==== Building from Source ====
  
-=== Updating source code ===+A complete build of gPXE or Etherboot 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 these packages using:
  
-To update your downloaded source tree at any time, use+  sudo yum install syslinux mtools
  
-  git pull +You can then do complete build of gPXE using:
- +
-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 ​new tarball. +

-=== Source code for old versions === +
- +
-Should you want it, the source code for the old Etherboot-5.4 release is available from [[http://​git.etherboot.org/?​p=etherboot.git]].+
  
 +  cd gpxe/src
 +  make
  
-==== Download pre-built binaries ====+**Centos 5 / Fedora 11 Notes**
  
-You can get pre-built ROM images from [[http://rom-o-matic.net/]] +You may need to set the value in the line 59 of src/arch/i386/​Makefile correctly (/​usr/​share/​syslinux/​isolinux.bin), apparently the reference to /usr/​lib/​syslinux/​isolinux.bin is incorrect, this has not been tested in other distros. ISOLINUX_BIN config has been missing for a while.

 +=== Etherboot 5.4 and older releases ===
  
 +Source code for Etherboot 5.4 (our legacy bootloader, in maintenance-only mode) is available at [[http://​git.etherboot.org/?​p=etherboot.git]].
  
 +The source code for older Etherboot releases is available from [[http://​sourceforge.net/​project/​showfiles.php?​group_id=4233&​package_id=4250]]
