I have this problem,
When I tried to mount the miniroot.gz, i am always have this error:
ioctl: LOOP_SET_FD: Invalid argument.
I unzip the file firt, and then I tried to mount it.
here is what i did:
mount -o loop filename /mount_directory
check the type of the unpacked file
you only can mount iso files with loop
I'm pretty sure you can mount more than just iso9660 with loop...
I am able to mount initrds with loop and they were formatted as ext2/ext3.
you could try specifying the filesystem type with -t
as iwanabeguru said, you can use
to check the type of the file.
Thank you for reply.
I finally mount the file, and I know i just can mount with -o loop the iso images, but the file, in this case is the miniroot.gz, I unziped, and then mount the file without the gz extension.
To be able to do this, I had to install my kernel-headers and my kernel-sources.
