HOW TO OPEN AN .ISO FILE IN LINUX

In this article we are going to learn how to open any iso file .When we normally try to open any file we literally use # cd  filename but in case of iso file it shows many errors.

Lets take rhel540iso.iso  a file that i want to open .

[root@localhost ~]# ls

a  A  anaconda-ks.cfg  Desktop  install.log  install.log.syslog  rhel54iso.iso

We have to mount to open any iso file . So i will mount rhel54iso.iso to /mnt.

[root@localhost ~]# mount -o loop rhel54iso.iso  /mnt


Lets check whether its been created or not .

[root@localhost ~]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1              15G  7.3G  6.3G  54% /
tmpfs                 506M     0  506M   0% /dev/shm
/root/rhel54iso.iso   2.8G  2.8G     0 100% /mnt


Now we have to go to /mnt and i need only server folder because it contains all important file.

[root@localhost ~]# cd /mnt

[root@localhost mnt]# ls

And copy server folder to  /root/desktop

[root@localhost mnt]# cp -rv Server /root/Desktop
`Server' -> `/root/Desktop/Server'
`Server/Deployment_Guide-as-IN-5.2-11.noarch.rpm' -> `/root/Desktop/Server/Deployment_Guide-as-IN-5.2-11.noarch.rpm'
`Server/Deployment_Guide-bn-IN-5.2-11.noarch.rpm' -> `/root/Desktop/Server/Deployment_Guide-bn-IN-5.2-11.noarch.rpm'
`Server/Deployment_Guide-de-DE-5.2-11.noarch.rpm' -> `/root/Desktop/Server/Deployment_Guide-de-DE-5.2-11.noarch.rpm'
`Server/Deployment_Guide-en-US-5.2-11.noarch.rpm' -> `/root/Desktop/Server/Deployment_Guide-en-US-5.2-11.noarch.rpm'
`Server/Deployment_Guide-es-ES-5.2-11.noarch.rpm' -> `/root/Desktop/Server/Deployment_Guide-es-ES-5.2-11.noarch.rpm'
`Server/Deployment_Guide-fr-FR-5.2-11.noarch.rpm' -> `/root/Desktop/Server/Deployment_Guide-fr-FR-5.2-11.noarch.rpm'
`Server/Deployment_Guide-gu-IN-5.2-11.noarch.rpm' -> `/root/Desktop/Server/Deployment_Guide-gu-IN-5.2-11.noarch.rpm'
`Server/Deployment_Guide-hi-IN-5.2-11.noarch.rpm' -> `/root/Desktop/Server/Deployment_Guide-hi-IN-5.2-11.noarch.rpm'
`Server/Deployment_Guide-it-IT-5.2-11.noarch.rpm' -> `/root/Desktop/Server/Deployment_Guide-it-IT-5.2-11.noarch.rpm'

Now unmount because its no longer needed.

[root@localhost ~]# umount /mnt


 

[root@localhost Desktop]# chvt 7

  1. Unquestionably imagine that which you stated. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the internet
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly
    get annoyed even as other people consider worries that
    they plainly don’t recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
    top as neatly as defined out the whole thing with no need side
    effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.
    Thanks

    will go along with your views on this site.
