How to mount the stresslinux cloop image

How to mount the stresslinux cloop image
I tried to mount the cloop image (I assume it is one) of the ISO distribution with the following commands:
losetup /dev/loop1 /mnt/stresslinux-read-only.i686-0.4.111
mount -o ro /dev/loop1 /mnt/loop1

However, i am asked to use a specific filessystem type.
Could you please provide me th fs type and tell me how this cloop image was generated?
Actually, I try to use to extract all files of the filesystem in order to set up a new PXE loadable version. Unfortunately, I had an issue loading the version 0.3.1 due to an issue with the console implementation.

Could you please help me with that? thanks.

RE: How to mount the stresslinux cloop image
stresslinux download files are compressed with bzip2, you have to extract
the iso image first. then you can mount it like that:

[code]mount -o loop stresslinux_64bit.x86_64-0.4.134.iso /mnt/[/code]

Be sure you have the correct right (root) to do the mount. The filesystem type
is iso9660.

Additionally i don't think you will get PXE to work with current ISO image,
without manipulating initrd contents (adding network drivers) and maybe some
other stuff. It's planned to have a PXE version again, but i can't tell when
it will be available.[/code][/quote]
