Fedora 16 : KVM : guestfs browser : browse filesystem in a VM which is not running.

guestfs-browser enables you to browse filesystem in a VM which is not running.
Fedora release 16 (Verne)
[root@fc16 ~]# uname -ri
3.3.7-1.fc16.x86_64 x86_64

install guestfish browser via yum
[root@fc16 ~]# yum install -y guestfs-browser

start guestfs-browser
[root@fc16 ~]# guestfs-browser

connect to a livbirt URI

select a VM in which you’d like to browse filesystem.

The following is an output of Fedora16’s VM’s filesystem.

You can view/ edit / download files

select a file -> view / download

when browsing filesystem in that VM , the following process was running.
[root@fc16 ~]# ps aux | grep -i f16 | grep -v grep
