loopfileswithpartitions

http://blog.madduck.net/ asked today if it was possible to have /dev/loop0p1 devices, read: if it was possible to mount partitions of a disk image with partitions.

Well, there is a patch floating around for this: http://lwn.net/Articles/110426/.

Unfortunately, this patch seems to not be in 2.6.18 yet.

UPDATE: Madduck has written an interesting helper script for mounting partitions of an image file: http://blog.madduck.net/geek/2006.10.20_loop-mounting-partitions-from-a-disk-image
