Loop mount the iso

From MEPIS Documentation Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

It is possible to mount an ISO file as it were a CD by using a loop device.

Example:

su
mount -o loop SimplyMEPIS-CD_6.9.85beta4_32.iso /mnt/temp

In this case SimplyMEPIS-CD_6.9.85beta4_32.iso is mounted to the temporary folder /mnt/temp to unmount run:

su
umount /mnt/temp

If /mnt/temp directory doesn't exist, you need to create it before running the mount command:

mkdir /mnt/temp
