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.
