modprobe loop ? :)

Well. That was helpful... but didn't solve the problem.


[root@blade15 xen-rh64-gold]# mount -o loop -t ext3 hda mnt
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,

you want

losetup /dev/loop1 /dev/hda

then kpartx -av /dev/loop1

(the partitions are in /dev/mapper/loop1px)

then mount /dev/mapper/loop1p2 /mnt

or something like that


The vm installed into "had" is configured with the default
partitioning mechanism, which involves LVM.

LVM is different... if the above doesn't work, try running vgscan/lvscan after you losetup.
