-  $ git pull+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.
  
-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.+----
