Update: A Koji scratch build is available here.
You can now browse into the Registry on Windows guests:
You can point it at a disk image like this:
$ guestfs-browser -a disk.img
If you want to browse libvirt guests then at the moment you probably need to run it as root (because you won’t have permission to read the guest disk images otherwise).
I’ve now written code to download files and directories from guests, and there are some more operations available (greyed out in the screenshot because not yet implemented). But what operations would you like to see? At the moment we won’t implement any write operations, because it just makes it too easy for naive users to corrupt guests*.
* Proper locking support will eventually fix this, once we can get agreement from all concerned.
The guest filesystem browser lets you browse inside the filesystems of virtual machines and disk images using a simple graphical interface.
Currently it’s a very early / alpha stage, but you can download experimental RPMs for F13 here (they might not work for everyone).
