mount problem.

i want to extract some data of my /dev/sda3 partition.

root@g01 ~]#mkdir /root/1

root@g01 ~]# dd if=/dev/sda3 of=/root/img
692992+0 records in
692992+0 records out
[root@g01 ~]#

[root@g01 ~]# mount /root/img /root/1 -o loop
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop2,
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?)
[root@g01 ~]#

why i can not mount it.where i'm doing wrong.I have searched in google but no info is suitable for my solution.

Why are you doing it this way? Why not just mount the partition to a mount point??

Is it **possible** to mount a file to a mount point?? I dont know

if u want to mount simply mount /dev/sda3 then type the command as
# mount /dev/sda3 /mnt(any mount point )

Hope this would help

hello all,
AFAIK,we can mount a file to an moutn point.because i have mounted an linux iso image.So it is obvious that,we can mount it.

also look some of the result.

Actually /dev/sda3 is linux partition.If i workout the same for /dev/sda2 which is windows(vfat) partition,it works good.

so some where the filesystem problem..

[root@g01 ]#mkfs /root/img -t ext3
mke2fs 1.37 (21-Mar-2005)
Could not stat /root/img --- Permission denied
[root@g01 ]#

[root@g01 ]# dmesg
attempt to access beyond end of device
loop2: rw=0, want=8240, limit=6889
EXT3-fs error (device loop2): ext3_get_inode_loc: unable to read inode block - inode=8, block=1029
EXT3-fs: invalid journal inode.
[root@g01 ]#
