change lsinitrd to use "xz --single-stream" (from xz 5.1)
Last modified: 2012-01-23 06:31:33 EST
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.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
