Re: [opensuse] Problem mounting an iso file

No, wait, I was doing that as user.
When I do it as root I see all the /dev/loop0 --->7
and the mount command works for me as root.

I have Tumbleweed and only see:
crw------- 1 root root 10, 237 Jun 29 00:07 /dev/loop-control

Is it possible that no loop device exists until it is needed, controlled
by systemd ???

I have previously loop mounted iso's but not recently and perhaps not
since 12.3....


Indeed, something of the above does happen. As root I loop mounted an iso
from disk to an existing directory and the following appears:

crw------- 1 root root 10, 237 Jun 30 23:09 /dev/loop-control
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 0 Jun 30 23:09 /dev/loop0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 1 Jun 30 23:09 /dev/loop1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 2 Jun 30 23:09 /dev/loop2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 3 Jun 30 23:09 /dev/loop3
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 4 Jun 30 23:09 /dev/loop4
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 5 Jun 30 23:09 /dev/loop5
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 6 Jun 30 23:09 /dev/loop6
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 7, 7 Jun 30 23:09 /dev/loop7


and they persist after umounting the iso, possibly until the next reboot.
