Description

This patch add the support of remote compressed image enabling the use of compressed archive in tar.gz, tag.bz2 and tar.xz for disk source.

The patch is for NFS and SSH drivers for 1.4 branch and another for the 2.0 branch.

Note that I use curl in my patch, which is not installed by default in every linux distribution.

Thank you for the patches.

I just don't see why tar is useful as images are single files. Compressing directly the file with gzip/bz2/xz should do the trick. What do you think?

#2 Updated by Alexandre Joseph about 10 years ago

You're right, if modified this a week ago to directly use gzip and bzip2 as the image is a single file but i didn't update the ticket.
