MKINITRD: mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/loop0 as a block device

Post by Philippe LE YONCOUR » Fri, 28 Jan 2000 04:00:00



Hi all

When I try to compile the kernel 2.2.12 or 2.2.14 I got the following
message

when I do:
cd /boot
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.2.14.img 2.2.14

I got:
mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/loop0 as a block device (maybe
`insmod driver' ? )
Can't get a loopback device

Thanks, for your help

1. mount /mnt/cdrom ==> mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/cdrom as a block device

Hello,

I'm in trouble again.   My cdrom on RH6.0 used to mount using command-line
or linuxconf.

Now suddenly its stopped working -   when I try to mount using  "mount
/mnt/cdrom"  I
get rebuffed with :

   #mount  /mnt/cdrom
     mount:  the kernel does not recognize /dev/cdrom as a block device
                    (maybe 'insmod driver'? )

# insmod iso9660
    insmod:  iso9660: no module by that name found.

Linuxconf tells me its mounted successfully but obviously is failing in the
background.

It is unfortunate for me that Linux is giving me these problems as I am only
a beginner
really.   sigh!

thanks for expert advice...
