Re: all loopback devices are in use

Is this just a kernel option? One perhaps I didn't compile in? If I boot of the stock RH 9 kernel and build a new kernel I don't have this problem. It's only when I boot off my new kernel and rebuild it that the problem occurs.

Thanks for the quick response!

What is this and why does it happen?

Your Kernel need a loopback to create your ram disk's
image (on the boot process)
Are you sure that you have activate loopback support?
