Is there a way to mount rw a changes file?

Is there a way to mount RW a changes file (a copy not the running one)? As a rescue editing, etc.

It is a raw disk image file (not a squashfs etc) so..

find out the file system type, create a mount point directory
The command looks like:

mount -t ext4 -o loop /mnt/live/memory/data/linux/alphaos1/changes.fs4-v2 /mnt/live/memory/filesave1

Okay but you don't add it to AUFS union?

You manually put files in it?

Only the running one belongs to the union. As a copy it is just a raw file. Yes you can edit it as a normal drive as long as it is mounted as a loop device. Then replace the original from a no savefile session or from an other os and boot with it.
