vmdk-loop is a small utility to let you mount VMware* virtual disks under Linux, similar to the vmware-loop utility in older versions of VMware.

Version 1.1alpha1 has experimental write support, enabled with -w. Use at your own risk! Make sure you back up the virtual disk first, just in case.

Multipart (> 2GB) disks are not currently supported.

Usage information is in the README file in the distribution.
