UNMKINITRAMFS(8)          (2016/12/15)           UNMKINITRAMFS(8)

     NAME
          unmkinitramfs - extract content from an initramfs image

     SYNOPSIS
          unmkinitramfs [-v] initramfs-file directory
          unmkinitramfs -h

     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 ini-
          tramfs.
