Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu 12.10
Release: 12.10

libguestfs0: 1:1.18.5-2ubuntu1

In Ubuntu 12.10 the appliance creation script (update-guestfs-appliance) and the libguestfs-test-tool are under libguestfs-tools.

I'm not sure this is a right choice. I think they should be under libguestfs0 as they are in Debian. All the applications that use the library should work out of the box when you install them using "apt-get install". For example guestmount has libguestfs0 as a dependency but not liguestfs-tools. If you do:

apt-get install guestmount

you end up installing a program that does not work:

$ guestmount -a debian.raw -m /dev/sda1 --ro /mnt
libguestfs: error: cannot find any suitable libguestfs supermin, fixed or old-style appliance on LIBGUESTFS_PATH (search path: /usr/lib/guestfs)

And the user needs to manually fix this by either installing libguestfs-tools or downloading a binary appliance.

summary: - update-guestfs-appliance & ligbuestfs-test-tools should be included in
+ update-guestfs-appliance & ligbuestfs-test-tool should be included in
libguestfs0
