I am trying to mount an iso image, say:
mount /tmp/mnt/sda1/isos/AlmaLinux-8.5-x86_64-dvd.iso /tmp/mnt/sda1/test
And I get:
mount: can't setup loop device: No such file or directory
I believe I miss a loop module, which needs to be insmoded. Shall I be not wrong can you hint me to a recommended dd-wrt guideline to do so? Or maybe there is another way to approach the issue, i.e. mounting iso images, on dd-wrt?
Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r44715 std (11/03/20)
uname -a: Linux rt-n18u 4.4.241 #1326 Tue Nov 3 08:59:26 +03 2020 armv7l DD-WRT
But actually looking at these I am loosing track of the required steps as my aim is only providing the loop kernel module to enable mounting iso images. Do I need both optware and entware? What cifs has got to do with it?
If someone could point me to the right path for the required steps I would appreciate it.
