Extract of ISO file via terminal?
 
hello there... can anyone tell me how to extract a iso file (named a.iso for example) via terminal?


Googled it up, found nothing.

mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/iso

Then cd /mnt/iso and copy the files to wherever you want them. You can't actually "extract" an iso, but you mount it and then take the files you want...

Do you need root access for this? If you do, is there around needing root access?

offcourse u do need to be root access for this!

mount wouldn't work as regular user!

I don't root access, would it work as a sudo user?

Yeah, sudo will work.
