tar -C $tftppath -xzf $tmpfile ./debian-installer/amd64/initrd.gz ./debian-installer/amd64/linux --strip-components=3
Since ExaGear allows the Pi to run x86 applications, it also allows you to run WINE on the Raspberry Pi, and since you can run Windows applications with WINE, that means that you can also run Windows applications on the Raspberry Pi through WINE through ExaGear!
