mount -t iso9660 -o loop file.iso dirname/

Post by spottedkangaroo » Sun Nov 21, 2004 2:46 pm

bash$ mount -t iso9660 -o loop file.iso dirname/

is reporting: "mount: Not a directory," but it most certianly is.

I have tried various things, including chmod 777 ./tmp, /fullpath/file.sio /fullpath/dirname ... but it just won't take.

I have theorized that you can't mount a loopback device on a dir in a loopback device. But if that's the case, then the error message seems a little off.

Any ideas?

1. This is not a bug in media centre

2. you might need to be root to mount the loopback

3. give more info, copy and paste the actual commands and responses.
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?
