Hi List.

I added squashfs-support into the kernel so i can put the (german)
wikipedia on my 2gb card which squashfs compresses from 15GB to 1,8GB.
The mount-command i use is "mount -t squashfs -o loop image.sqfs dir/"
but i get the error "Mounting ..... failed: Block device required".
I also tried different options like -o loop=/dev/loop0, -o ro,loop or
-o loop=/dev/mtdblock0 (if you think this guy must be clueless you are
right) but with the same result.

Does anyone know what to do here?

I have /dev/loop, /dev/loop0,...,/dev/loop7.
