Is the initramfs compressed? The scanning code can't deal if the

[stse@osgiliath]: file /boot/initrd.img-4.0.2-Dom0 /boot/initrd.img-4.0.2-Dom0: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)

I donât think the initrd is compressed.

http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-users/2014-05/msg00053.html says that I have to use âcpio -H newcâ not âcpio -o câ, but I donât know how the Debian tools create the initrd.

Shade and sweet water!
