NAME

lsinitramfs - list content of an initramfs image

SYNOPSIS

lsinitramfs [-l] initramfs-file...
lsinitramfs -h

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.
