Well okay! Here goes:
n00b situation one: where do I start?
I see a ton of files in the downloaded .tar.gz file from
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/Testing/ . I also see:
Changes in 3.08:
* SYSLINUX: Fix performance regression (-s mode always
* Add API function for idle loop.
* libutil: Add do_idle() function for idle loop, make
get_key() use it.
but I don't see specific file names related to the pxelinux.0 or
menu.c32 files (pretty sure its a pxelinux.0 issue though). pxelinux.doc
appears to be usage documentation as opposed to 'this file does this'
type of documentation.
n00b situation two:
how do I compile in my changes? I'm used to a 'gmake clean' and all
the usable binaries go away, edit code, gmake (or gmake pxelinux.0) and
usable binaries come back. When I gmake clean, pxelinux.0 still exists.
Once I edit files and re-compile them, how do I make sure my changed
pxelinux.0 file contains the changes I just made?
Thanks in advance. I'll check file size differences for now to see if
something jumps out at me!
