Re: [Libvir] Libvirt Build problems



Hello Daniel,

Thankyou very much for your advice, I really appreciate it. Yes, I do lack sys-admin experience for Linux, but hey how I will learn unless I try it by myself.

But after rebuilding the libvirt src rpms, as you advised I managed to install libvirt. So my simple python script no longer complains about not finding libvirt.

Many thanks, and best regards

Omer

  Check with your sysadmins, most of this really isn't related to libvirt,
but how to use RPM. In general you seems to try to do relatively advanced
sysadmin operations (virtualization) without much experience about it.
Using xen-3.0.1 is risky, it's old code. Using RHEL-4 derivative for this
is risky too, RHEL-4 doesn't yet have virtualization support. You need
minimal knowledge on compilation and possibly package maintainance. So
please listen to me, and check with the people who maintain that special
version of the system you are using, most of this really isn't related to
libvirt itself, and there is no garantee that even after weeks of trying to
help you over mail you would get something working.
  That said ...

  it's a warning, harmless, but rebuild means running
  rpmbuild --rebuild libvirt-0.1.9-1.src.rpm

  You lack getext-devel.
But again ... check with your system administrator !
