I use Suse 8.2 Prof.

Unfortunatly, I cannot find any info on loopback devices in the support & knowledgebase section of their site.

modprobe loop results in:
modprobe: Can't locate module loop

In the Linux Kernel section of the Control Centre there is no loopback device available under block devices to compile into the kernel so i guess fixing this problem cannot be resolved via this gui tool.

Ne1 know how to do it via the command line interface?

hmmmm, my apologies, I actually meant about img files

Kommt mir vor als wüsstest du absolut nicht wovon du redest, eh ?

.bin's brauchen immer den cue (isobuster und alcohol und daemontools etc. seeken einfach im cue nach hints auf die tracks..)

multi-track cds koennen nicht gemountet werden (iso9660 und mixed-mode cds sind was voellig unterschiedliches)

bleib enfach bei windows, loesche dein linux oder lerne ersteinmal ein bisserl wie linux funktioniert.

haettest du ein bisserl ahnung dann wüsstest du, das suse loopback support im kernel hat - ohne den kann man naemlich keine initrd beim booten mounten (und das macht suse, redhat, mandrake etc..)

Crappy translation of cfu2002

It seems to me as if you don't know what you are talking about huh? bin's always need the cue (like isobuster and Alco-get and daemontools etc. seeken simply in cue after hints on the TRACKS.) multi-TRACKS cds cannot be gemountet (iso9660 and mix OD mode cds are completely different) keep up with windows, delete yours linux or learn firstonce bisserl as linux functioned. if you would have knowldege then you would know that Suse has loop-bake support in kernel - without that one can do none initrd with boats mounten (and suse does, mandrake also etc..).

Note: First of all, keep this in english. I respect german peoples, but this is not a Counter-Strike server, so keep it down. In second place, if you cannot english and would be able to help in german, at least give an usefull comment and above all, be polite... This is not you house after all.
And in last place, bin not always need the cue. The is a text file, which holds usually the track lengt and order of them. Many files can be burned using only the bin though, specially games. So, seems you have a lot to learn:

- english
- computers
- being polite
- bin/cue files

nuff said.

Re: extract bin files??

bchunk is the program that converts to iso:
Usage: bchunk [-v] [-p (PSX)] [-w (wav)] [-s (swabaudio)]
<image.bin> <image.cue> <basename>
Example: bchunk foo.bin foo.cue foo
-v Verbose mode
-p PSX mode: truncate MODE2/2352 to 2336 bytes instead of normal 2048
-w Output audio files in WAV format
-s swabaudio: swap byte order in audio tracks
so the command-line answer would be:
 bchunk file.bin file.cue file && mount file01.iso -t iso9660 -o loop /mnt/iso
Giving bad advice is worse then no advice.

You wanted a GUI, and I was bored, so I whipped one together in Kommander (install that first) in about 10 minutes.
Download it here:

add a KDE menu entry for
kmdr-executor /path/to/bincue2iso.kmdr
and it's just like WinBlows. Set your bin file, your cue file, then choose your output directory and the basename (like if you want the iso tracks to be called file01.iso, file02.iso... it would be "file") and it will save files for all the parts (PSX tracks, audio, and isos) in the output dir.

If you want to edit it (really easy and graphical) type:
kmdr-editor /path/to/bincue2iso.kmdr
in an xterm.
