Buildroot is generating images for an embedded device where they should run. This is working very well. In those images, the rootfs is included.
Due to some research, I'd like to look into that generated file (e.g. different compression modes set by the Buildroot were applied and now shall be checked if they were correctly done), but I can't find something useful in the Net.
As far as I know, the difference between a uImage and zImage is just a small header, so u-boot is able to read that binary file. But I can open neither uImage nor the zImage.
Can anyone give me a hint of how to decompress those (u/z)Images on the host?
