Browsing guests using FUSE

What’s interesting about this screenshot is that I’m browsing into a guest filesystem using the GNOME file browser (nautilus), with the guest mounted using FUSE and libguestfs. You can visit directories, open files, and drag files out of the guest (but not drag them into the guest yet — we haven’t enabled file writes at the moment).

(This is /var/log from a Fedora 12 Alpha guest, displayed in a Fedora 11 host. Notice the “Free Space: 5.7 GB” label which accurately shows the amount of free space in the guest filesystem).

Update

FUSE support via the guestmount command is in libguestfs 1.0.77.
