Re: [Libvir] libvirt on OS X Leopard 10.5.1

Ah, I knew hyper was 64-bit, but it has no definition on OS X. I thought that long on OS X 10.5.1 was 64 bits in width -- my mistake.

There wre two bugs in the remoteAuthenticate method in libvirt 0.4.0 which can cause crashes. I'd recommend testing again with libvirt from the latest
CVS checkout - its pretty likely that'll fix your problem.

The funny thing is that I have all auth mechanisms turned off in libvirtd. But I can see how some of the library's init code may be failing. I did try to build the package from HEAD, but that failed. I will try again and report the errors.

Thanks!

I spent the weekend attempting to get libvirt working on OS X Leopard
10.5.1. I was able to get it to compile, but not connect to libvirtd
running on either my KVM or Xen servers. Here are the instructions for
getting it to compile:

1. Download libvirt-0.4.0 from the mirrors.

2. Use macports to install pkgconfig and gnutls

3. Configure your source:

./configure --without-xen --without-qemu

4. Replace instances of 'hyper' in qemu/remote_protocol.x with 'long'
and then follow the instructions on http://libvirt.org/windows.html to
regen XDR structures.

This is going to fail big time. 'hyper' is 64-bit in size, where
as long is 32-bit. Any RPC calls which user hyper will crash and
burn if you make this change.

What errors do you get if you don't make this change ? There may
be better ways to provide compatability.

10. The sources should now build and install.

At this point any attempt to connect to a remote host results in the
thread dying and OS X catching the exception with the following report:
