Libguestfs is a library for accessing and modifying virtual machine
disk images.

It can be used to make batch configuration changes to guests, get
disk used/free statistics (virt-df), migrate between hypervisors
(virt-p2v, virt-v2v), perform backups and guest clones, change
registry/UUID/hostname info, build guests from scratch (virt-builder)
and much more.

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 for Mageia is split into several subpackages. The basic
subpackages are:

libguestfs C library
libguestfs-tools virt-* tools, guestfish and guestmount (FUSE)
libguestfs-tools-c only the subset of virt tools written in C
(for reduced dependencies)
virt-v2v convert virtual machines to run on KVM (V2V)
virt-p2v-maker convert physical machines to run on KVM (P2V)
virt-dib safe and secure diskimage-builder replacement
