Re: [Libguestfs] guestfs_list_partitions with vdi



I accidentally found a way to do this using qemu-nbd.  It's
not tested, but something like this should work:

 qemu-nbd disk.img -o <offset> -t

 qemu-img create -f qcow2 -b nbd:localhost:10809 /tmp/overlay
 # and then run libguestfs as normal on /tmp/overlay

This is read-only (because of the overlay).  However at the moment I'm
adding direct nbd support to libguestfs, so once committed it will be
able to access nbd exports in write mode.
