Mounting of iso image in RHEL4


Hi,

I am trying to mount the iso image of the dvd in RHEL 4 update 4.However its not getting mounted.

First i tried with the following command.However it asked me to specify the file system type

[sroot@pune-vp craft]# mount -o loop VP4.1.2501.iso /vp
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

Then i tried with the file system type also however it fails with the below error.

[sroot@pune-vp craft]# mount -t iso9660 -o loop VP4.1.2501.iso /vp
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)

Appreciate any suggestions on this.

clearly not an intro to yourself and interests in linux. moved to Linux - Newbie. if there was some specific literature or such which lead you to post in the intro's forum, please let us know.

What does
Code:
file VP4.1.2501.iso
say about it? If it really is an ISO image, it should say "ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem" or something..that hopefully reveals if it's regular iso or not. For a start.

I tend to use:
mount file.iso -r -t iso9660 -o loop /mnt/image
or
mount file.iso -r -t udf -o loop /mnt/image

That's funny, I usually do
Code:
# mount file.iso /mnt/image -o loop
Does anyone know what the officially correct syntax is?
The -t iso9660 might help, but should not be necessary.

Hi All,

Thanks for your input.
I found out the issue.The iso image seems to be improper.
I redownloaded the iso image and its getting mounted properly using
mount -o loop file.iso /mnt

Thanks all for your response.
