Description Bruno Wolff III 2013-08-06 06:44:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Loop devices are no longer precreated. So that mounting using loop devices will fail unless you run modprobe loop first.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:

[root@bruno bruno]# mount -o loop Fedora-Live-XFCE-i686-19-1.iso /mnt
mount: /home/bruno/Fedora-Live-XFCE-i686-19-1.iso: failed to setup loop device: No such file or directory
[root@bruno bruno]# modprobe loop
[root@bruno bruno]# mount -o loop Fedora-Live-XFCE-i686-19-1.iso /mnt
[root@bruno bruno]#

This is working again in rawhide. My guess is that there was a kernel issue as there had been a change affecting this that was made recently. I ay have seen it later than some people because there is a dracut issue affecting booting and I needed to revert dracut to boot with recent kernels.
