5.2. Unpacking the Source Code

If you used CVS to get a copy of the U-Boot sources, then you can skip this next step since you already have an unpacked directory tree. If you downloaded a compressed tarball from the DENX FTP server, you can unpack it as follows:

$ cd /opt/eldk/usr/src
$ wget ftp://ftp.denx.de/pub/u-boot/u-boot-1.3.2.tar.bz2
$ rm -f u-boot
$ bunzip2 < u-boot-1.3.2.tar.bz2 | tar xf -
$ ln -s u-boot-1.3.2 u-boot
$ cd u-boot
