Im having a bit of fun with unetbootin with linux mint 16 setup in it.

However when I try run the default menu item I get an error that ends with this:

can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs)

any ideas?

  • You might not need unetbootin anymore. Using dd if=your-image.iso of=/dev/sdi bs=4k where your-image.iso is your CDROM image and /dev/sdi is your USB key is generally enough. – Basile Starynkevitch Jun 24 '15 at 15:24

Maybe you haven't loaded squashfs at all. Check with

grep squashfs /proc/filesystems

This problem is solved with

modprobe squashfs

  • I see a file called filesystem.squashfs in the dir created by unetbootin – FutuToad Mar 14 '14 at 11:28
