Description Rodary Jacques 2001-04-07 21:36:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [fr] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2smp i686)

I can' mount an iso9660 file on loop with my new custom kernel 2.4.2. I
can't even kill the mount command (I tried all signals). When I try to
reboot, the shutdown process hangs on "unmounting file systems". It worked
fine -and still does- with kernel 2.2.17-14. Did I forget something in
kernel config?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount -vt iso9660 -o loop[=/dev/loop0] iso /mnt

Actual Results:  /var/log/messages says "Device not ready. Make sure there
is a disk in the drive"

An upgrade to 2.4.3 fixed the problem with loop device on my PC.
Comment 2 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2001-04-09 19:37:19 EDT
this is a very known problem with 2.4.2 kernels. It's probably fixed in 0.1.49 
release in rawhide. It's definately fixed in Linus' 2.4.3. Basically you missed 
the fix in your new custom kernel.
Comment 3 Rodary Jacques 2001-04-09 22:42:11 EDT
It's OK with 2.4.3. But does anyone know what's wrong in 2.4.2?
Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-04-15 17:30:38 EDT
I can't reproduce this with 2.4.2-2, assuming it's fixed.
