Here's a brief review on how to mount an ISO image locally to use it as if you had burned it to disk and mounted it. We'll use Freescale's latest QoriQ SDK as our example. We just downloaded QoriIQ-SDK-V1.5-SOURCE-20131219-yocto.iso to our ~/Downloads directory. We're using Ubuntu 12.04.
$ export PS1='\W $ ' # let's keep the prompt simple, just the current directory ~ $ sudo losetup /dev/loop0 ~/Downloads/QorIQ-SDK-V1.5-SOURCE-20131219-yocto.iso ~ $ mkdir sdk ~ $ sudo mount /dev/loop0 ~/sdk mount: block device /dev/loop0 is write-protected, mounting read-only ~ $ ls sdk documents EULA install packages_manifest.pdf yocto.tar.gz
