[Libguestfs] Followup: libguestfs on Ubuntu



[I have CC'd this to some people who have asked about libguestfs on
Ubuntu on the mailing list.]

I made some experimental, lightly tested, unsupported packages for
Ubuntu available here:

  http://www.annexia.org/tmp/debian/

You will need Ubuntu 9.10 & amd64.

These are based on the Debian packaging[1] done by Guido Gunther and
Laurent Leonard, many thanks to them:

  http://git.debian.org/?p=pkg-libvirt/libguestfs.git;a=summary
  http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DebianLibvirtTeam

The five Ubuntu patches from before are straight rebases, and you can
find a few other things I changed in the sources.

What is missing is libsys-virt-perl (Sys::Virt, the Perl bindings for
libvirt).  Since this doesn't exist on Ubuntu, you will have to supply
it yourself, or install the package with a broken dependency (dpkg
seems to allow this? - I was a bit surprised).  Without this package,
virt-inspector and a few other bits won't work.

If you want help, please post on the mailing list:

Rich.

[1] The Debian packaging doesn't work on Debian, because of what
appears to be a bug in fakeroot:
