Kernel module loop not loaded
« on: 2014/01/11, 23:30:09 »

With systemd the module "loop" is not automatically loaded.

Code: [Select]
root@siductionbox:~# mount -o loop home/user/Downloads/siduction.iso  /mnt
mount: Could not find any loop device. Maybe this kernel does not know
       about the loop device? (If so, recompile or `modprobe loop'.)

Here is the solution to enable it again. As root execute once:

Code: [Select]
echo loop > /etc/modules-load.d/loop.conf
After a reboot your mounts will be happy again!
