mounting loop device at boot?
so, I'm trying to make a persistent ttylinux usb
it doesn't have persistence yet so I'm improvising:)
First, I gunzipped the ttylinux "filesys.gz", then mounted it
mount -o loop filesys mnt
then I edited /mnt/etc/fstab as so
However, I would really like to instead mount a ext3 file (think casper-rw) as /home at boot
so it's not doing "modprobe loop" or loading loop modules at startup
How do I get it to load loop at startup??
Can I edit /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf?
add "modprobe loop" or what?
I edited /etc/fstab again and made it like this
why doesn't it automount it??
it does automount UUID=858bbfc6-4d93-47f8-a6ad-c59e961a606d /tmp so why not the other??
I got it to automount by editing /etc/rc.d/rc.local and added
So, now it mounts the ext3 "ttylinux-rw" 100MB file on usb as /home!
Is there a more elegant or simpler way to do this?
