NAME

lsinitramfs - list content of an initramfs image
 

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, except where an early (uncompressed) initramfs with system firmware is prepended to the regular compressed initramfs.
