"losetup -d /dev/loop0" does not work.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log on as root.
3."losetup -d /dev/loop0"
Actual Results: After step 2., the system reports that I had nothing
After step 3., the system issues one message only: "Segmentation fault",
after which the system hangs.
Expected Results: Step 3 should have reported that there was no loopback
device setup, or something like that. I should have been able to continue
without rebooting the system.
I was trying to set up a loopback CD device so that I could install our
BRU-Pro product and test it on Wolverine.
After rebooting the system, I was able to continue successfully by just
skipping the "umount /mnt/cdrom" and "losetup -d /dev/loop0" commands. I
simply issued the following commands:
losetup /dev/loop0 /tmp/brupro_126.96.36.199.iso
mount /dev/loop0 /mnt/cdrom
This was successful, and I was able to install our BRU-Pro product and
Does the kernel give an oops ?
Ok. I can reproduce this.... Investigating
The only reason I reported this under "kernel" is that bugzilla didn't give me
an entry under "losetup".
It's a kernel bug al right...
Our next kernel build will have a fix for this. Please reopen this bug
if a kernel 2.4.2-0.1.17 or later (when it becomes available) does not fix this
