Is there any new/better way of loopback mounting individual partitions from within a file that contains a partition table on linux? I see the following but they are somewhat dated.
Let's say $IMAGE is set to the path to your image file. You could write a small script by using
fdisk -u sectors -l $IMAGE
to get a list of partitions inside the image. And then use a sequence of
mount -o ro,loop,offset=$OFFSET -t auto $IMAGE /media/$DEST
Where offset is calculated means the info from fdisk (start sector * size of a sector in bytes) and $DEST a unique name for each of the partitions.
That's not directly the solution but I hope a pretty good indication on how to realize it. If you make the job once, you've some small nice beginning for some forensic toolkit!
