[Libguestfs] ANN: libguestfs on Debian and Ubuntu



I've deleted most of the Debian and Ubuntu binaries that were
previously here, because they were old and not being updated:

  http://libguestfs.org/download/binaries/

For Debian, please use Hilko's packages:

  squeeze:       http://people.debian.org/~bengen/libguestfs/
  wheeze and up: [available as a regular Debian package]

For Ubuntu we still don't have good packages available.  You could try
the Debian packages, or build from source using the "fixed appliance"
which is pretty simple:

  ./configure --disable-appliance --disable-daemon
  make
  sudo make install
  # download the latest appliance from
  # http://libguestfs.org/download/binaries/appliance/
  xzcat appliance-*.tar.xz | tar xvf -
  export LIBGUESTFS_PATH=/path/to/the/appliance
  # then run libguestfs tools as normal

For Ubuntu 10.04 only you will need to install some backports, and
patch libguestfs sources, see:

  http://libguestfs.org/download/binaries/ubuntu1004-packages/
