    Unable to mount isos using latest kernel in RHEL6.6 using this method.

    When attempting to enter: mount -t iso9660 -o loop /patch/to/image.iso /mnt/path (with the proper iso name in the proper directory and /mnt/path created), receiving the error message:

    column: invalid option — ‘o’
    usage: column [-tx] [-c columns] [file …]

    Tried in init 1/3, even an older release of the kernel, still nothing. HOWEVER, apparently the -t and -o options _DO_ work with sudo mount.
