- Download the required tar file from the NIC Software and Drivers web page.
The compressed tar file (.tgz) should be downloaded/copied to a directory on the machine on which it will be installed.
- As root, unpack the tar file using the tar command.
tar -zxvf onload-<version>.tgz
This will unpack the tar file and, within the current directory, create a sub-directory called onload-<version> which contains other sub-directories including the scripts directory from which subsequent install commands can be run.
