I'm trying to port SLAX distribution to colinux and i'm facing a problem with the maximum number of loopback devices i can use.

On slax, root mount point is populated with compressed files (squashfs) mounted as loop devices and merged into a single filesystem (unionfs).

I'm unable to use more than 8 loopback devices, even with kernel option "max_loop=255" and /dev populated with 255 loop devices.

Is there any configuration option or  known limitation in colinux ?


Colinux-version : colinux-0.7.1 devel
Kernel : with unionfs and squashfs patchs
dmesg :   
loop: loaded (max 255 devices)
