Embedded Linux - Extraction Errors When Extracting linux-xlnx-master.zip From Xilinx GitHub Repository


I am downloading the Xilinx linux-xlnx source code repository via the ZIP archive feature on GitHub.  

When I attempt to extract the ZIP archive some files which should be actual files are instead extracted as symbolic links.  

Other files may fail to extract entirely.



The root cause of this issue is currently being investigated with GitHub.


A workaround is to perform a normal "git clone" operation instead of using the ZIP file.
