UNMKINITRAMFS(8)             unmkinitramfs manual             UNMKINITRAMFS(8)

NAME
       unmkinitramfs - extract content from an initramfs image

SYNOPSIS
       unmkinitramfs [options] <initramfsfile> <directory>

DESCRIPTION
       The  unmkinitramfs  command  extracts  the content of a given initramfs
       image using cpio.  If the image contains multiple  segments,  each  are
       passed to cpio in order.

OPTIONS
       -h     Display usage information and exit.

       -v     Display verbose messages about extraction.

USAGE EXAMPLES
       Extract initramfs content of current running kernel:

       unmkinitramfs /boot/initrd.img-$(uname -r) initramfs/

BUGS
       unmkinitramfs  cannot  deal  with  multiple-segmented initramfs images,
       except where an early (uncompressed) initramfs with system firmware  is
       prepended to the regular compressed initramfs.
