Vendor: Scientific Linux
Libguestfs is a library for accessing and modifying virtual machine
disk images.  http://libguestfs.org

It can be used to make batch configuration changes to guests, get
disk used/free statistics (virt-df), migrate between hypervisors
(virt-p2v, virt-v2v), perform backups and guest clones, change
registry/UUID/hostname info, build guests from scratch (virt-builder)
and much more.

Libguestfs uses Linux kernel and qemu code, and can access any type of
guest filesystem that Linux and qemu can, including but not limited
to: ext2/3/4, btrfs, FAT and NTFS, LVM, many different disk partition
schemes, qcow, qcow2, vmdk.

Libguestfs for Red Hat Enterprise Linux is split into several subpackages.
The basic subpackages are:

               libguestfs  C library
         libguestfs-tools  virt-* tools, guestfish and guestmount (FUSE)
       libguestfs-tools-c  only the subset of virt tools written in C
                             (for reduced dependencies)
                 virt-dib  safe and secure diskimage-builder replacement
                 virt-v2v  convert virtual machines to run on KVM (V2V)
           virt-p2v-maker  convert physical machines to run on KVM (P2V)

For enhanced features, install:

          libguestfs-gfs2  adds Global Filesystem (GFS2) support
 libguestfs-inspect-icons  adds support for inspecting guest icons
        libguestfs-rescue  enhances virt-rescue shell with more tools
         libguestfs-rsync  rsync to/from guest filesystems
           libguestfs-xfs  adds XFS support

For developers:

         libguestfs-devel  C/C++ header files and library
  libguestfs-benchmarking  Benchmarking utilities

Language bindings:

 libguestfs-gobject-devel  GObject bindings and GObject Introspection
    libguestfs-java-devel  Java bindings
              lua-guestfs  Lua bindings
   ocaml-libguestfs-devel  OCaml bindings
         perl-Sys-Guestfs  Perl bindings
