No Linux distros can mount squash files made by another one.
I tried mounting 008-firefox.xzm in Porteus and it didn`t work.
Logged in as root I entered in the VT:
Code: Select all
mkdir /mnt/loop mount -o loop /mnt/sda4/porteus-1.2/porteus/base/008-firefox.xzm /mnt/loop
It says it mounted the file read-only, but /mnt/loop is empty.
Mount shows the "file" mounted on /mnt/loop , but it should show the "loop device".
Porteus should be able to mount it`s own Squash files, right?
Puppy Linux won`t mount Porteus or Tiny Core Linux Squash files and vise versa.
Apparently they all use a different compression as they all use version 4 of Squash.
This potentially makes Squash files useless for portable apps. Solutions???
