Fdisk, cfdisk and sfdisk are command line partitioning utilities included by default in all Linux distributions. They provide different interfaces to the same set of functions: while they all can be used interactively, only sfdisk is script-oriented. They support DOS, GPT, SGI and SUN partition tables.
Fedora is one of the most popular Linux distributions: it is sponsored by Red Hat, but its development is community-driven. While the default version of Fedora ships with the GNOME desktop environment (it is probably the ideal choice if you want to use a vanilla version of the latter), there are many alternative spins available, which allows us to try a variety of desktop environments such as XFCE or KDE Plasma. In few easy steps it is even possible to build and try a custom Fedora live image.
In a previous article, we saw how to create kvm virtual machines from the command line; in this tutorial, instead, we learn how to access and modify virtual machines disk images, using some utilities which are part of the libguestfs package on the most commonly used Linux distributions. Those tools let us perform a variety of tasks.
