When I executed the following command:
# mkdir /tmp/x # modprobe loop # modprobe fat # mount -t fat -r /mnt/share/data/Download/images/os8.img /tmp/x mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on /tmp/x failed: No such device
Note if I don't do "modprobe loop" command just hangs forever. I would expect either a not supported type error, or for a successful mount. Any ideas as to why it freezes instead? Any ideas what the "No such device" error means? /dev/loop0 exists. I can also tell it is doing something, as if I tell it the wrong filesystem type I get an "Invalid argument" error instead.
