Summary0005268: the ext3fs.img file in the squashfs.img is incorrectly named
DescriptionExtracted the data from the squashfs.img in the Centos 6 LiveDVD and then proceeded to try to mount the file ext3fs.img

sudo mount -t ext3 -o loop squashfs-root/squashfs-root/LiveOS/ext3fs.img ext3-root/

This failed with the following in dmesg:

[27624.258466] EXT3-fs (loop1): error: couldn't mount because of unsupported optional features (240)

Then decided to ommit the -t ext3 to let it mount figure out the filesystem and it worked:

sudo mount -o loop squashfs-root/squashfs-root/LiveOS/ext3fs.img ext3-root/

output from dmesg shows that it's ext4:

[27957.697343] EXT4-fs (loop1): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)

The only reason I initialy thought that the filesystem was ext3 was because the name is ext3fs.img. Suggest renaming it to ext4fs.img
