How to extract initrd in opensuse 13.2

What is the easy way to extract the initrd of opensuse 13.2?
A “dd if=initrd skip=$N | unxz | cpio -i” to skip the “Early CPIO image” is too complicated…

You can use /usr/lib/dracut/skipcpio instead of dd.

The real challenge is not reading but re-creating - something that was really easy in the past :slight_smile:

Thanks, this works.
