Remember we went through this steps. 1. copy it from /boot to /tmp and add the .gz extension. 2. gunzip the file. 3. After that you should see something similar to: [[email protected] tmp]$ file initrd-2.4.21-40.ELsmp.img initrd-2.4.21-40.ELsmp.img: Linux rev 1.0 ext2 filesystem data 4. Then you can mount it... [[email protected] tmp]# mount -o loop initrd-2.4.21-40.ELsmp.img /mnt [[email protected] tmp]# df Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/hdc6 77940192 27503864 46477112 38% / /dev/hdc1 202220 67293 124487 36% /boot none 367400 0 367400 0% /dev/shm /tmp/initrd-2.4.21-40.ELsmp.img 7745 348 6997 5% /mnt 5. Then you can go to /mnt and see the file system.... [[email protected] tmp]# cd /mnt [[email protected] mnt]# ls bin dev etc lib linuxrc loopfs proc sbin sysroot 6. You should mount the non-custom initrd at some other mount point. Maybe make a directory called /mnt1 and mount it there...and then compare what is in the non-custom file system with your custom one. I'm guessing that the difference will be in the lib directory.
