I believe this kernel is too old -- it doesn't have virtio-serial
which was added in 2.6.35 or 2.6.36.  Unless you can at least install
a later kernel for guests to use, this is never going to work.


Okay, I managed to locate a machine with kernel 2.6.35-7.1.1.  I build febootstrap-3.6 without any problems, then tried to build libguestfs-1.10.3, and encountered a different failure mode:

rm -f stamp-supermin supermin.d/base.img supermin.d/hostfiles

Following this was 209 lines each of the form "E: No downloadable files for <name> version <version>; perhaps it is a local or obsolete package?"

Any suggestions for how to proceed from here?  Thanks in advance.
