    Subject2.1.112: cannot detach loop device
    Hi ! :-)

    After downloading tomsrtbt-1..... a played around
    with it.
    I noticed, that unpacking the floppy image using
    the loop device only works once after unpacking
    the archive tomsrtbt-1....tgz.

    I traced down the problem to an undetachd loop device
    still hooking on the floppy image...

    I tried 'losetup -d /dev/loop* ' and received

    ioctl: LOOP_CLR_FD: No such device or address

    Yes, Ihave included support for the loop device
    (otherwise the unpacking of the floppy image would
    fail in any case...)

    Yes, Ihave included support for a ramdisk (otherwise...)

    What is happens here? Where can I get the newest version
    of losetup -- still I am believing it is a current version.

    Or is it a problem of the current kernel (2.1.112)?

    Thank you very much for any help!
