extract initrd to trace kernel panic

6 January 2009 3,067 supporters No Comment

This is for my record. In case i have format my laptop. I still have this record.

Currently i want to get openvz to work in my fedora after successfully instal in Ubuntu 8.10. After booting with new Stable kernel openVZ i get kernel panic. So i suspect it have something to do with the initrd.

I have to extract initrd.

[[email protected] boot]# mkdir initrd
[[email protected] boot]# cp initrd-2.6.18-92.1.13.el5.028stab059.6.img initrd
[[email protected] boot]# cd initrd
[[email protected] initrd]# ls
initrd-2.6.18-92.1.13.el5.028stab059.6.img
[[email protected] initrd]# gzip -dc initrd-2.6.18-92.1.13.el5.028stab059.6.img | cpio -id
16615 blocks
[[email protected] initrd]# ls
bin  etc   initrd-2.6.18-92.1.13.el5.028stab059.6.img  lib64  sbin  sysroot
dev  init  lib                                         proc   sys   usr

The most important thing is init…
