I'm having a little problem. I used SquashFS for most of my CD, just
like the LFS LiveCD. But when I try to access it with losetup (under
BusyBox 1.1.0 w/2.6.14 in a initramfs using the same init script from
the LFS LiveCD) I get this:
bio too big device loop0 (2>0)
I did some googling and found that BusyBox 1.1.0 may not work with
losetup correctly. I'm going to try BusyBox 1.0 to verify if that's the
I have the loop device compiled into the kernel along with squashfs.
Anyone seen this before when creating a LiveCD of any kind? Any idea
what it really means? It almost sounds like my squashfs file is too
large, but I don't think that's the problem (it's about 200MB). It's
something related to accessing the loop device with losetup. I just
don't know what yet.
