Re: [Libvir] The fist problem to compile libvirt in a Debian etch.



Hello guys,

To finish the libvirt compilation, I've commented:

file: libvirt/configure:
#elif test "z$with_libxml" = "z" -a "z$PKG_CONFIG_ENABLED" = "zyes" ; then
#    PKG_CHECK_MODULES(LIBXML, libxml-2.0 >= $LIBXML_MIN_VERSION,
#       LIBXML_FOUND=yes,
#       LIBXML_FOUND=no)

I know that the libxml in my system is in correct version. the var LIBXML_MIN_VERSION in configure script is set to "2.5.0". This is the version in my system:
# dpkg -l | grep libxml2
ii  libxml2                2.6.27.dfsg-1                   GNOME XML library
ii  libxml2-dev            2.6.27.dfsg-1                   Development files for the GNOME XML library

file: libvirt/tests/xencapstest.c
  /*  if (!(actualxml = xenHypervisorMakeCapabilitiesXML(NULL, hostmachine, fp1, fp2)))
      goto fail;*/

In libvirt/tests/xencapstest.c, I don't know if comment it is correct.
Any idea? I do it correctly? this test is important to libvirt?

This is the return error if I not comment the conditional 'if' in libvirt/tests/xencapstest.c:

gcc -fno-stack-protector -o xencapstest xencapstest.o testutils.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-conf.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-hash.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-libvirt.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-proxy_internal.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-qemu_internal.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la- sexpr.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-test.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-virterror.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-xend_internal.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-xen_internal.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-xen_unified.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-xm_internal.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la- xml.o ../src/.libs/libvirt_la-xs_internal.o  -L/usr/lib /usr/lib/libxml2.so

Hello Richard,

I tried with debian do it. In command autogen.sh return it:

$ ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local --enable-compile-warnings=error --enable-debug=yes
[...]
./configure: line 20698: syntax error near unexpected token `LIBXML,'
./configure: line 20698: `    PKG_CHECK_MODULES(LIBXML, libxml-2.0 >= $LIBXML_MIN_VERSION,'

I read the 'configure' shell script code and in release 0.1.11 the libxml section is different. I know that if I comment this entry I run this scrtipt without errors but it isn't elegant :-)

Thanks Richard,

regards

It looks like CVS snapshots aren't being updated!  The one on the site
at the moment dates from 2007-02-14 and as you found out contains
libvirt-0.1.11, which is ancient history.  I'll ask Daniel Veillard
about that one next week.

I also tried building libvirt on Debian and didn't get very far either.
  But we're committed to making libvirt work on Debian (and Ubuntu, and
other free OSes for that matter).

So if you have the time can you try this to get the latest CVS version:

# apt-get install cvs gcc make gettext automake1.9

$ cvs -d ': pserver:anoncvs libvirt org:2401/data/cvs' co login
   # at the prompt type anoncvs

$ cvs -d ': pserver:anoncvs libvirt org:2401/data/cvs ' co libvirt
   # the above will check out the source into a subdir called libvirt

$ cd libvirt

$ ./autogen.sh --prefix=$HOME/local --enable-compile-warnings=error
--enable-debug=yes
   # you can change the --prefix to something more useful

If the above succeeds -- and it didn't for me -- then:

$ make

If any of the steps fail then post the full output.  I can look at why
libvirt on Debian is failing next week.

Thanks for helping with libvirt,

Rich.
