Hello all,

I am searching for a tool or method to access paritions from a file. So for example I have a simple file or logical volume which contains a partition table and multiple partitions. So I normally can't mount this partitions with mount.

In Linux for example I would simply use kpartx to get dummy/pointer-devices for the partitions in /dev/mapper/ so is there a tool which do the same on NetBSD to get access to the partitions within the file or logical volume?

Best Regards

P.S. Sorry for my bad english
