Description Paolo Bonzini 2011-09-29 11:57:25 EDT
The F16 installation image is two concatenated cpio images:

  [xz-compressed dracut initramfs][uncompressed cpio with /squashfs.img]

lsinitrd doesn't know how to deal with this. xz 5.1.1alpha and higher can do this:

( xz -dc --single-stream > initramfs.cpio && cat > install.cpio ) < initrd.img

and it would be nice if lsinitrd would use --single-stream once it is made available in Fedora.
