Response to: mount: you must specify the filesystem type

yes you have to pass an option to the mount command telling it to mount it as the loopdevice. type this


mount -o loop /dev/loop0 /mnt/floppy

    Doesn't seem to work for me:

    root@on6jc:/cd# mount -o loop /dev/loop0 /mnt/floppy/
    mount: you must specify the filesystem type

    (the losetup was accepted without problem)

    Also, there is no boot.img on the 3.7 Knoppix disk. I suspect it's the largest file - called KNOPPIX. (that's the one I losetup'd)

    what should be the option for this instruction:

    # mount /dev/fd0/ /mnt/floppy/

    it has the same error as
    mount: you must specify the filesystem type
