Description of problem:
libguestfs-1.18.1-1.2.el7.x86_64 fail to work on RHEL7 latest tree( RHEL-7.
0-20121012.1), error as below,=20

# guestfish -N fs
guestfish: error while loading shared libraries: libpcre.so.0: cannot open 
shared object file: No such file or directory

manually create a link to libpcre.so.0 could fix this problem, but libguestfs still stuck at  creating the appliance, not sure if it's "-machine" break libguestfs, at least libguestfs-1.18.1-1.2.el7.x86_64 could work on earlier rhel7 tree,

What is libguestfs-1.18.1-1.2.el7?

Anyway, yes, libguestfs is broken in RHEL 7.  We're still
rapidly developing the features for RHEL 7 in Fedora 18 at
the moment, and don't expect to finish that before the end
of this year.
Comment 11 Richard W.M. Jones 2013-07-18 12:54:32 EDT
Works for me in 1.22.2, with SELinux enforcing.
Comment 13 bfan 2014-01-08 21:57:57 EST
Verified with libguestfs-1.22.6-17.el7.x86_64

# guestfish -N fs

Welcome to guestfish, the guest filesystem shell for
editing virtual machine filesystems and disk images.

Type: 'help' for help on commands
      'man' to read the manual
      'quit' to quit the shell
