Problems compiling libguestfs? Try the libguestfs binary appliance

The libguestfs binary “fixed” appliance [README] is a copy of the Fedora appliance, adapted so you can just download it and use it directly with libguestfs.

Just download libguestfs ≥ 1.17.10 (or from git), compile without the usual appliance:

./configure --disable-appliance --disable-daemon
make
sudo make install

Set your path to point to wherever you unpacked the appliance:

export LIBGUESTFS_PATH=/usr/local/lib/libguestfs/appliance

and then run libguestfs and the virt tools in the usual way.

    I compiled it ok, but how can i use the tools package,e.g. virt-win-reg.

      To use the programs without installing, use the “./run” script, eg:

      ./run ./tools/virt-win-reg [etc]
      

      Read the README file and the relevant manual pages.

        I changed the “b” value in the script “run”,then “./run ./tools/virt-list-filesystems” ok,but “./run ./tools/virt-win-reg” show that:
        Attempt to reload Win/Hivex.pm aborted

        This isn’t the place for support. Use the mailing list or other methods described on the web page.
