Re: [Libvir] Howto: install libvirt on Debian Etch (the ugly way)



I writed a howto to compile the libvirt and virt-manager on Debian etch:
http://wiki.xen-br.org/index.php?title=Compiling_libvirt_in_Debian_etch

I make a libxen3-dev to solve the libvirt compilation (in document).

work around won't be neccessary in future.
