Re: mount iso image failed

You have to make sure that the fspd module is loaded before you try to mount the ISO image.


Load the module:

# kcmodule fspd=loaded

# mkdir /iso

# mount /var/adm/crash/dvd.iso /iso


To unload the module after you are done, and have umount'ed the iso image:


# kcmodule fspd=unused
