Hi everyone,

Has anyone had success with loop mounting a file stored on a glusterfs

administrator at vs02:/mnt/temp$ sudo losetup -f file.img
ioctl: LOOP_SET_FD: Invalid argument

I get this error but the same image works fine on an ext2 partition.

I've discussed this a little on the IRC room, and apparently it's being
investigated, but I figured I'd ask if anyone else has come up against it
and has a short-term solution.

Thanks everyone, esp. glusterfs devs ;)
