This is a known problem with kernel 2.4.2 and the loopback filesystem.
Upgrade the kernel to 2.4.3, or get the loopback patch for 2.4.2.

I just tried:
mkisofs -o ~/image.iso -R /usr/src/
mkdir ~/image
mount -t iso9660 -o image.iso ~/image/

and it worked for me, btw:
uname -r
2.4.3,
using ext2fs, Reiserfs, etc...

 
 
 

1. Mounting an ISO 9660 CD FS from HardDisk...

Hi,
Probably a dumb question, but I can't  run out to the store now to
get a CD-R//RW as the stores are closed. So please don't wast a lot of
time on this...

If I have a (large) ISO 9660 CD filesystem file which I downloaded
(say it's called "blah.iso") and it's sitting on my ufs harddisk. Is
there a way for me to mount this "blah.iso" file and access it as if it
were a real CD? I was thinking of the following (but am afraid to do it
as
I don't want to cause any unnecessary panics)...

(1) prompt%  mknod /mnt/blah b
(2) prompt%  dd if=blah.iso of=/mnt/blah
(3) prompt%  mount _cd9660 -o ro,loop blah.iso /mnt/blah

If I simply try the following...
(1) prompt%  mkdir /tmp/blah
(1) prompt%  mount_cd9660 -o ro blah.iso /mnt/blah
I get the following error:
mount_cd9660: Block device required

Thanks you for any help.

BTW: Am I right in guessing that if I actually had the energy
to read the ISO 9660 standard, that I would need to purchase it
from ISO at http://www.iso.ch /  ?
