Re: Extracting file system from an iso image

Let me ask the silly question, why are you trying to avoid mounting the filesystem? The obvious way to do an extract is to just mount with a loopback mount and copy. I presume that there is some reason why you don't want to do this, lack of permissions perhaps, other than that I don't see any reason to look for an alternative.

 It seemed like a good idea at the time
