    Thumbs up Mounting an ISO image

    Hi,

    I am a newbie in Linux.

    I have several ISO images. Whenever I desire to use these I used to create a Virtual Drive [CD/DVD drive], mount these image files, execute them in M$ Windows.

    Is this same procedure possible in SUSE ?

    Thanx for any valuable guidance.

    Regards,

    tvks

    to mount an iso there are several GUI's you can use.

    gmount is one of them.

    but to use the command line is pretty easy too:

    open a terminal window

    mkdir <some_dir> i.e. mkdir tempmnt

    mount -o loop <iso_name> <some_dir>

    you can now cd to that dir and list, browse or copy FROM(only!) as any other dir on your system.

    Linux/Unix has always been able to do this, thankfully, and it's part of
    the distribution out of the box. All you need are privileges and a
    mountpoint. For example, /mnt is a common mountpoint, but I like
    creating directories under there so, for your example:

    mkdir /mnt/iso
    mount /path/to/your/iso/file /mnt/iso

    Now just browse /mnt/iso and you will see your ISO contents.

    Good luck.

    Doh! I forgot the '-o loop' part.

    mkdir /mnt/iso
    mount -o loop /path/to/your/iso/file /mnt/iso

    Good luck.

    Hi there,

    Apparently KDE does support this.
    I don't know if that works on all distros, but it does on my openSuse 10.3.

    Have a look at:

    Cheers
