So it's not compressed at all.


cpio -i < /boot/initrd.img-3.18.0-trunk-686-pae

to expand it (again, from within an _empty_ directory).
   yes, that did not give an error.  but not much is in
there:  this is interesting...  :)

That's _very_ weird. If my experience is any guide, there should be an
entire root-like hierarchy in there; mine contains

bin/ conf/ etc/ init lib/ lib64/ run/ sbin/ scripts/

with appropriate content under each. Instead, this looks like a simple
"addon filesystem" archive.

Sorry I missed it, but what version of Debian does this occur on??
