I'm following Meanie's instructions and using his packages so that I can use XQT and a variety of applications. I want to use the following cramfs images:


However, when I run the xqt-install script, it will only work with the first two cramfs images (whatever they may be) and for the others it will say:

Warning: ambiguous entry for <image name> (this is also displayed for the images that work)
mount: Could not find a spare loop device

Sure enough, when I look in /dev there are only two loop devices. I notice that the xqt-install script is running mknod, which I assume is to create the additional loop devices necessary. When I try running one of the lines from the script (like "mknod /dev/loop2 b 7 2") I get the error "mknod: /dev/loop2: No space left on device". I'm not sure what this means. I do know that I have plenty of free space on the device, however.

Can anyone help me with this? Aside from the fact that I can only mount two of these images at once, these cramfs images have been working very well, and I'd love to be able to use them all at once. Note that I am still pretty much a linux newbie, so I may very well be overlooking something very basic.

One other possibly related issue is that the script says that automounter is not installed, even though I have definitely installed it.
