This is my the content of my rootfs.cpio file:
[root@xilinx output]# cpio -idv < rootfs.cpio
What is . here ?
. is the current directory. All directories on Linux file systems contain the hardlinks . and .. (the parent directory). For example:
$ ls -a / | head -4
This is what enables you to do cd ../ to move to the parent directory or use constructs like find . to search the current directory (though the . is actually implied in find).
