This is an experimental rebuild of libguestfs with the supermin
Make sure you install libguestfs >= 1.0.48-2. Earlier versions were
broken in various different ways.
I've tested it locally on i586 & x86-64 and it seems to work for me.
You'll get warning messages like this:
><fs> alloc /tmp/test.img 10M
cpio: ./usr/sbin/glibc_post_upgrade.i686: Cannot open: Permission denied
cpio: ./usr/sbin/groupadd: Cannot open: Permission denied
cpio: ./usr/sbin/groupdel: Cannot open: Permission denied
cpio: ./usr/sbin/groupmems: Cannot open: Permission denied
cpio: ./usr/sbin/groupmod: Cannot open: Permission denied
cpio: ./usr/sbin/tzdata-update: Cannot open: Permission denied
This is a known problem (it tries to pull some files from the host
filesystem which are not readable) and shouldn't affect any operations
and it still passes the test suite even without those programs.
