    Tried exactly as you said. Same problem. Here:

    mastersj@periscope mastersj]$ dd if=/dev/zero of=tmpfile bs=1k count=100
    100+0 records in
    100+0 records out
    [mastersj@periscope mastersj]$ su
    Password:
    [root@periscope mastersj]# losetup -e rc6 /dev/loop0 tmpfile
    Password :
    ioctl: LOOP_SET_STATUS: Invalid argument
    [root@periscope mastersj]#
