I found that in my /dev directory loop0 ......
loop15 files existed. So to create loop16 ..... loop50
use this script
for i in `seq 16 50`
mknod /dev/loop$i b 7 $i
that's it. loop devices 16 thru 50 are created in the
/dev/ directory. Then u pass a kernel boot argument
(if loopback support is compiled in the kernel)
max_loop=50 or insert the module with the same
argument ( if it is compiled as a module) to use all
the 50 loop devices.
Now u can mount upto 51 (0 .... 50) iso images to see
their contents. To mount an iso image file u use
mount -o ro,loop fedora-core-1.iso /mnt
/mnt is my dest dir and fedora-core-1.iso is my iso
img file. This uses the first available free loop
device, in my case it used the /dev/loop0 and mounted
the iso image. Got it ???
