Good news. :)

Can you also add fsck to supported commands?

This worked:

guestfish -a /home/images/rawhide.img -m /dev/sda2
# /proc is required to use fsck
command "mount /proc"
# devices are not created in dev, so I need to create them
command "/sbin/MAKEDEV /dev/sda"
command "/sbin/MAKEDEV /dev/sda1"
# Autorepair with "-y" need to be used, otherwise it will only display
# error, that interactive mode can't be used.
command "/sbin/fsck /dev/sda1 -f -y"

At least /proc and /dev files can be useful for users.

But for one filesystem this only displayed:
e2fsck: Cannot continue, aborting.
No more information.

Which version of kvm>74 is fully functional? What is status of Fedora 10
new virt packages (rebuild packages from F11/F12)?
After some tests with new virt packages, my qemu qcow2 partitions have been
corrupted and I was unable to install new or use my old virtual machines.

I can't test libguestfs until I can make some almost stable packages?
Data corruption is not my problem, I only need anything, that work.
My current (functional) configuration:
  etherboot-roms-kvm-5.4.4-13.fc11.noarch
  etherboot-zroms-kvm-5.4.4-13.fc11.noarch
  gtk-vnc-0.3.8-8.fc11.i586
  kvm-74-10.fc10.i386
  libvirt-python-0.6.1-1.fc10.i386
  libvirt-0.6.1-1.fc10.i386
  python-virtinst-0.400.3-3.fc10.noarch
  python-virtualenv-1.3.2-1.fc10.noarch
  qemu-img-0.9.1-12.fc10.i386
  qemu-0.9.1-12.fc10.i386
  virt-df-2.1.5-1.fc10.i386
