I'm trying to access files contained in box packages created with
Creating the boxes is no problem and I can open them with a something like 7-Zip to reveal the vmdk file inside, but, they don't seem to contain the same files I see in a vmdk downloaded from the Vagrant box repository.
For instance, this is the file structure of an Ubuntu box downloaded from the repository:
It looks like a regular Linux file system and I can extract any files I want.
And this is the vmdk of a box made with Vagrant package:
and the 0.img file:
Now I can drill down into some of those but the folders and files are not organised in the same way as the regular listing above. But in particular I can't see any sign of the folders and files I've created within the box which are certainly packaged by Vagrant package since that's its function.
I'm on Windows and some of those listed files I can't get into such as the System.map which may hold the gold I'm after.
So, my questions are:
- where would I expect to find the files I'm after?
- is it possible to package a Vagrant box so it has a regular file system output as in boxes downloaded from the repository?
- also, the 1.lvm file listed is a massive 42GB which I can't quite extract to my current drive. Is that likely to be important to my quest? I can't seem to look inside it without extracting it.
