I recently did a
ssh root@myserver "dd if=/dev/xvda " | dd of=/<localpath>/myimage.img
as instructed by my VPS server docs at linode. I did this before to another linux system and mounted it perfectly by doing
sudo mount -o loop myimage.img mountdirectory
But on my mac osx 10.7 I get the following error.
mount: You must specify a filesystem type with -t.
I tried -t ext, -t ext3, -t ext4 but all failed with an error like this
mount: exec /System/Library/Filesystems/ext4.fs/Contents/Resources/mount_ext4 for /<mount directory>: No such file or directory
How do I fix this?
