Re: [Libvir] Problem to compile virt-manager in debian etch

Hello all,

I have a problem to compile the virt-manager in a Debian etch (64 bit
version). I got the virt-manager source from mercurial repository.
Bellow the output autogen.sh command:

./autogen.sh
libtoolize: `config.guess' exists: use `--force' to overwrite
libtoolize: `config.sub' exists: use `--force' to overwrite
libtoolize: `ltmain.sh' exists: use `--force' to overwrite
configure.ac:7: required file `./config.rpath' not found
man/Makefile.am:6: `%'-style pattern rules are a GNU make extension

Ah the joys of automake ... You can get rid of the above warnings (at the miniscule cost of requiring GNU make) with the first attached patch.

src/Makefile.am:26: variable `schema_SOURCES' is defined but no program or
src/Makefile.am:26: library has `schema' as canonic name (possible typo)
src/Makefile.am:11: variable `libexec_SOURCES' is defined but no program or
src/Makefile.am:11: library has `libexec' as canonic name (possible typo)
src/Makefile.am:4: variable `bin_SOURCES' is defined but no program or
src/Makefile.am:4: library has `bin' as canonic name (possible typo)
src/Makefile.am:18: variable `desktop_SOURCES' is defined but no program or
src/Makefile.am:18: library has `desktop' as canonic name (possible typo)
src/Makefile.am:8: variable `python_SOURCES' is defined but no program or
src/Makefile.am:8: library has `python' as canonic name (possible typo)
src/Makefile.am:22: variable `dbus_SOURCES' is defined but no program or
src/Makefile.am:22: library has `dbus' as canonic name (possible typo)

These are actual error messages.

For example:

  schemadir = $(sysconfdir)/gconf/schemas
  schema_SOURCES = $(PACKAGE).schemas.in
  schema_DATA = $(PACKAGE).schemas

  %.schemas: $(srcdir)/%.schemas.in
          sed -e "s,::PACKAGE::,$(PACKAGE)," < $< > $@

What appears to be meant here is that virt-manager.schemas.in should be distributed in the tarball, that virt-manager.schemas should be installed in /etc/gconf/schemas, and that virt-manager.schemas is generated from virt-manager.schemas.in. It seems however that the version of automake shipped with Debian doesn't like you using _SOURCES when you are not building a binary or library (instead just list the files to be distributed in EXTRA_DIST).

Patch for that attached.

I always wonder what problem exactly automake is supposed to solve, and I never use it in my own programs.

The final error is:

configure.ac:7: required file `./config.rpath' not found

To get this file the first time after you clone the repository, do:

  autoreconf -f -i -Wno-portability

In fact, we should really just use autoreconf instead of the home-brew autogen script. (That's what I recommend people do for virt-top et al.)

Rich.
