Re: [Libguestfs] compile guestfsd



yes, this is what i was asking for..

but I got the below message while compiling guestfsd daemon:

  configure: error: qemu must be installed

Since I am compiling on a virtual machine (CentOS 6.3), there is no qemu in it. How can I compile without qemu? P.S., I've tried --without-qemu, didn't work.

thanks.

I'm unclear exactly what the question is.  You can compile guestfsd
(just the daemon) this way:

  ./configure \
    --enable-daemon \
    --disable-appliance \
    --disable-fuse \
    --disable-perl \
    --disable-python \
    --disable-ruby \
    --disable-haskell \
    --disable-php \
    --disable-erlang \
    --disable-gobject
  make

  $ ls -l daemon/guestfsd
  -rwxrwxr-x. 1 rjones rjones 2073914 Sep 12 09:57 daemon/guestfsd

You still have to run that command on each distro/version that you
want to build a daemon for, assuming that's what you're trying to do.

Try:

  ./configure --help | grep -E -- '--(dis|en)able'

to get a list of things that can be enabled or disabled.  There is no
way currently to disable building the library, tools and language
bindings as a whole, although arguably we should add that.
