Hi all,

When trying to mount the root filesystem image on a non-clearlinux host (ubuntu), I get a "wrong fstype" error from mount. (dmesg says "VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem".)
Do I need the pmem driver on the host kernel in order to mount/edit the filesystem images?

no need for pmem, but remember that the image is a full disk, including a partition table

try something like

losetup /dev/loop1 clear.img
partprobe /dev/loop1

as long as your kernel has loop partitions enabled (max_part module parameter as well) this should get you


That did the trick! Thanks Arjan!
