I've finally updated the libguestfs Debian packages to 1.0.84 getting
them back in sync with upstream. Download instructions are on the pkg-libvirt's
Fetching files from a vm image with guestfish is as simple as:
guestfish --ro -a lenny-base-clone.img -m /dev/debian/root download /etc/passwd /tmp/passwd
After hacking around #561991 by running debirf as root we now do pass the
testsuite again. The new version includes fuse support as well as the
hivex tools to manipulate windows registries.
The source for the Debian package is available at git.debian.org. The next
step will be to split out the appliance so we can fetch that one via http and
upload libguestfs to contrib.
