sh: line 5: qemu-img: command not found

Because qemu-img is not installed. See also: (search for "qemu-img").

Yes that fixes quite a serious bug in sfdisk (

Updated, currently the tests are failing because ArchLinux is missing 4fe7f9b614e2b5bb97f6d89af02acb867cffccc1 in the util-linux package.

Fixed upstream in Fix will appear in nbdkit 1.18.2 (stable) and 1.19.3 (dev).

Thanks for the report. The upstream discussion is here:

I installed libnbd first (manually) and that solved the problem.

rwmjones commented on 2020-03-16 09:04

Soft dependency. However if it turns out that the nbd standalone plugin is actually broken then compiing without libnbd around seems like it will always cause a hang, until we get that fixed upstream.

t-8ch commented on 2020-03-16 08:59

@rwmjones would you recommend making libnbd a hard or soft dependency for the nbdkit package?

rwmjones commented on 2020-03-16 08:47

And yes there is a circular dependency between libnbd <-> nbdkit, but: (1) Neither dependency is essential and (2) Old versions of one package can be used to build new versions of the other package.
