What is the console equivalent of the following Python code:
target = file("disk", "w") # create a file target.seek(2*1024*1024*1024) # skip to 2 GB target.write("\0") target.close()
Maybe some dd incantation? The idea is making a file with the apparent size of 2 GB for use e.g. in virtualization.
kvm disk -cd whatever.iso #Only allocate space as necessary
