is there a way to extract the contents of a qemu raw image on (x86 Linux) host without starting QEMU itself? If so, any hint would be quite nice.

I'm looking for anything like the reverse what


seems to do. Extract files/directories from an existing raw image.

qemu-img reports me

 > qemu-img info disk.img
image: disk.img
file format: raw
virtual size: 4.3M (4515328 bytes)
disk size: 4.3M

but what is in it and how to access the content?

Thanks, and sorry if this is a FAQ and I missed the correct search string,



have you tried using a loop back mount?

# mount -o loop disk.img mnt/
mount: You have to specify a file system type
# mount -t raw -o loop disk.img mnt/
mount: unknown file system type „raw“

Sorry if I miss the obvious ;)
