lsinitramfs



SYNOPSIS
       lsinitramfs [options] <initramfsfile> [<initramfsfile>]


DESCRIPTION
       The lsinitramfs command lists the content of given initramfs images. It
       allows one to quickly check the content of one (or multiple)  specified
       initramfs files.


OPTIONS
       -h     Display usage information and exit.


       -l     Display long and more verbose listing of initramfs content.


USAGE EXAMPLES
       List initramfs content of current running kernel:


       lsinitramfs /boot/initrd.img-$(uname -r)

       List content of two initramfs files in verbose mode:


       lsinitramfs -l /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31-grml64 /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.33-grml64


BUGS
       lsinitramfs  cannot deal with multiple-segmented initramfs images, such
       as those created when an early  (uncompressed)  initramfs  with  system
       firmware is prepended to the regular compressed initrams, or when over-
       lay data is appended to the initramfs.
