Re: [Libguestfs] trouble compiling libguestfs 1.17.21



I built ok, but it seemed that I couldn`t install the virt-tools correctly.
Maybe I`ll use the virt-tools without needing to install, using the "run" script in the top directory.
But what big differences between stable branch and development branch ?
Is there any chance that I can get troubles for using development branch instead of stable branch?

This is the problem.

I understand the bug too: it's because you don't have the
libxml2-devel package installed.  From your configure output:

  checking for PCRE... yes
  checking for magic_file in -lmagic... no
  checking for LIBVIRT... yes
  checking for LIBXML2... no    <-----
  checking for LIBCONFIG... no
  checking for HIVEX... yes
  checking for FUSE... no

It should be possible to build libguestfs without libxml2, so I have
pushed the following patch which should fix the problem:
