Re: [libvirt] getFreeMemory reporting incorrectly?



Hey Daniel,

I just patched the source and compiled. It properly reports the free memory now:

[root node1 ~]# python
Python 2.4.3 (#1, Jan 21 2009, 01:10:13) 
[GCC 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-42)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import libvirt
>>> conn = libvirt.open('xen:///')
>>> print(conn.getFreeMemory())
134217728

Thanks for all your help!

Hany

If you want to build from source, I'd appreciate feedback on whether
the following patch fixes the problem
