Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2011-17372
2011-12-23 03:09:43
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : libguestfs
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.14.8
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://libguestfs.org/
Summary     : Access and modify virtual machine disk images
Description :
Libguestfs is a library for accessing and modifying guest disk images.
Amongst the things this is good for: making batch configuration
changes to guests, getting disk used/free statistics (see also:
virt-df), migrating between virtualization systems (see also:
virt-p2v), performing partial backups, performing partial guest
clones, cloning guests and changing registry/UUID/hostname info, and
much else besides.

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 provides ways to enumerate guest storage (eg. partitions,
LVs, what filesystem is in each LV, etc.).  It can also run commands
in the context of the guest.

Libguestfs is a library that can be linked with C and C++ management
programs.

For high level virt tools, guestfish (shell scripting and command line
access), and guestmount (mount guest filesystems using FUSE), install
'libguestfs-tools'.

For shell scripting and command line access, install 'guestfish'.

To mount guest filesystems on the host using FUSE, install
'libguestfs-mount'.

For Erlang bindings, install 'erlang-libguestfs'.

For Java bindings, install 'libguestfs-java-devel'.

For OCaml bindings, install 'ocaml-libguestfs-devel'.

For Perl bindings, install 'perl-Sys-Guestfs'.

For PHP bindings, install 'php-libguestfs'.

For Python bindings, install 'python-libguestfs'.

For Ruby bindings, install 'ruby-libguestfs'.

- New upstream version 1.13.24.
- This version includes upstream workarounds for broken qemu, so both
  non-upstream patches have now been removed from Fedora.
* Fri Oct 21 2011 Marcela Mašláňová  -
1:1.13.23-1.1
- rebuild with new gmp without compat lib
* Thu Oct 20 2011 Richard W.M. Jones  - 1:1.13.23-1

* Mon Oct 17 2011 Richard W.M. Jones  - 1:1.13.21-4
- Add upstream patch to skip FUSE tests if there is no /dev/fuse.

* Fri Oct 14 2011 Richard W.M. Jones  - 1:1.13.21-2
- New upstream version 1.13.21.

  dependencies for RHEV-H.  This tool is not likely to be useful
  for RHEV-H in its current form anyway.

* Wed Oct 12 2011 Peter Schiffer  - 1:1.13.20-1.1

- New upstream version 1.13.20.
* Sat Oct  8 2011 Richard W.M. Jones  - 1:1.13.19-1
- New upstream version 1.13.19.
- New tool: virt-sysprep.
- Remove the old guestfish and libguestfs-mount packages, and put these
  tools into libguestfs-tools.  This change is long overdue, but is also
  necessitated by the new virt-sysprep tool.  This new tool would pull
  in guestfish anyway, so having separate packages makes no sense.
- Remove old obsoletes for virt-cat, virt-df, virt-df2 and virt-inspector,
  since those packages existed only in much older Fedora.
* Wed Oct  5 2011 Richard W.M. Jones  - 1:1.13.18-1
- New upstream version 1.13.18.
- New tool: virt-alignment-scan.
* Tue Oct  4 2011 Richard W.M. Jones  - 1:1.13.17-1
- New upstream version 1.13.17.
