How to install ISO file in Linux system?

Installation steps:

1. Under the / MNT directory, create corresponding ISO folders, such as iso.

2. Run the following commands to mount ISO files


mount -o loop /home/tecmint/Fedora-18-i386-DVD.iso /mnt/iso

Description: / home/tecmint/Fedora-18-i386-DVD.iso is the path name of ISO file

After successfully installing the ISO image, move the installation directory to / MNT / ISO and list the contents of the ISO image. It can only be mounted in read-only mode, so it cannot modify any files.


cd /mnt/iso

ls -l

You’ll see a list of files for the ISO image we installed in the above command. For example, the list of directories for the Fedora-18-i386-DVD.iso image will be as follows.


total 16

drwxrwsr-x 3 root 101737 2048 Jan 10 01:00 images

drwxrwsr-x 2 root 101737 2048 Jan 10 01:00 isolinux

drwxrwsr-x 2 root 101737 2048 Jan 10 01:00 LiveOS

drwxrwsr-x 28 root 101737 4096 Jan 10 00:38 Packages

drwxrwsr-x 2 root 101737 4096 Jan 10 00:43 repodata

-r--r--r-- 1 root root  1538 Jan 10 01:00 TRANS.TBL

3. At this time, in the / MNT / ISO directory, there are corresponding installation files, and then you can install the software through these installation files.

Note: The above operations are performed after su root, requiring root privileges.
