Re: [Libvir] Still can't run a simple python test libvirt !



Thank you Daniel! So setting up the PYTHONPATH variable did the trick! Although the simple test executes, but with an interesting error complaining about an undefined symbol in libvirtmod.so

[root lcgctb9 libvirt]# python testLibvirt.py

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "testLibvirt.py", line 1, in ?
    import libvirt
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.3/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 7, in ?
    import libvirtmod
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python2.3/site-packages/libvirtmod.so: undefined symbol: PyEval_ThreadsInitialized

Regards
Omer

The python modiule is called 'libvirt' not 'virt'.

Since you installed into /usr/local, I suspect you'll need to also set
PYTHONPATH environment variable to tell python to look there for modules
it loads.  eg  export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages
