mount: could not find any free loop device

Feb 28, 2010 in Howto, openSUSE

Problem:
I got this error message when I was trying to mount an iso image to a derectory:
mount: could not find any free loop device

That was strange, since ‘mount’ showed that there was only one loop device mounted:

/ISO_images/SLED-11-DVD-i586-GM-DVD.iso on /path/SLED-11 type iso9660 (rw,loop=/dev/loop0)

Solution: (more…)
