e2fsimage 0.2.0

e2fsimage is a tool for creating and populating an ext2 filesystem image as an ordinary user.
e2fsimage allows you to create ext2 filesystem images, mostly used on Linux systems, by copying an entire directory structure into an ext2 formatted image without needing root permissions.

Without this tool you need to loopback-mount an existing filesystem image and copy all files there as root.

This application is usually used by people creating rescue disks, initrd's, bootable floppys or CDs or the more. Especially on build hosts where they do not have root permissions and the ptrace() bug is already fixed.

What's New in This Release:

support for user ids in .UIDGID file and usernames resolved by passwd file
free uiddb structure after use
manpage updated
