Re: [et-mgmt-tools] mounting image



To mount a disk image it's a little different than a regular loopback image.

- Setup a loop device to the imagefile
losetup /dev/loopX p2v-localhost_localdomain-200811061823-hda.img

- Read the partitions
kpartx -av /dev/loopX

- Mount each partition as required
mount /dev/mapper/loopXpX /MOUNTPOINT

hello all,


How do I mount the image created by virt-p2v?

I have a file p2v-localhost_localdomain-200811061823-hda.img which i wanted to mount and edit some settings.

i am not able to mount it as: mount -o loop p2v-localhost_localdomain-200811061823-hda.img /somedir

losetup -a tells it is linked to /dev/loop0.

/dev/loop0: [0805]:12 (/p2v-localhost_localdomain-200811061823-hda.img)

Thanks
Paras.
