I was messing around with loopbacks today and locked my system hard in a
repeatable way. It's pretty easy, just add something like this to /etc/fstab:
/dev/loop0 /tmp/mnt/build/7.2 ext3
defaults,noauto,loop,user 0 0
The combination of -oloop and /dev/loop0 seems fatal. I would post what message
I get (panic? oops?), but I have no way to actually get it off the dead console
(it's mostly scrolled past, anyway).
"foot" "shotgun" "root" :)
but.. preventing an oops might be useful.
