Also is possible on GNU/Linux

Searching 'How to mount a VirtualBox VDI image' on google the explanation is in first link.

Mod note: since "in first link" is not a unique long term identifier, I'm assuming this poster means this: http://bethesignal.org/blog/2011/01/05/ ... vdi-image/.

Besides, Paragon Hard Disk Manager is able to manage partitions in vdi
Besides, not mount but content related, PowerISO and 7Zip let read and write inside vdis.

Take care
