 I mention this so you know that if you already had a ''/​usr/​bin/​dtc''​ executable installed via some sort of ''​dtc''​ package, the one in that scripts directory will take precedence, unless you add that directory at the end of ''​PATH''​ instead of at the beginning. In any event, you //must// have a ''​dtc''​ command somewhere for the ''​dtx_diff''​ script. I mention this so you know that if you already had a ''/​usr/​bin/​dtc''​ executable installed via some sort of ''​dtc''​ package, the one in that scripts directory will take precedence, unless you add that directory at the end of ''​PATH''​ instead of at the beginning.

 +===== Comparing two .dts files already in the kernel source tree (Part one) =====
 +
 +If you're located at the top of the relevant kernel source tree, and you want to compare two device tree source files already there, say, under ''​arch/​arm/​boot/​dts/''​ (let's say, ''​imx6q-sabresd.dts''​ and ''​imx6qp-sabresd.dts''​),​ you can do this (note the use of shell expansion to save on typing):
