Re: [libvirt] Works: libvirt client on OS X 10.5.6

Happy to do it, I just need permission to put a file there. Additionally, you can grab the binaries at http://files.lostcreations.com/libvirt-0.6.3-bin.tar.gz and http://files.lostcreations.com/libvirt-java-0.2.1-bin.tar.gz. Both archives belong in /opt. They will decompress to libvirt-0.6.3 and libvirt-java-0.2.1 respectively. The latter depends on the former's location. Additionally, the libvirt binaries depend on gnutls and all of its dependencies existing in /opt/local (the default MacPorts root location).

Getting libvirt-0.6.3 (client) to compile on OS X

- Use MacPorts to install gnutls (and its several dependencies)

- Set environment variables:

 export LDFLAGS="-L/opt/local/lib"
 export CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include"

- Configure

--prefix=/opt/libvirt/ --without-sasl --without-avahi --without- polkit --without-python --without-xen --without-qemu --without-lxc -- without-

- Apply patches


     #ifndef MODPROBE
     #define MODPROBE 0


     if (command_ret != 0 /* WEXITSTATUS (0) */) {

That's great - we can easily fix these 2 bugs.

- Compile

The MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET variable is very important, otherwise you
will get symbol errors when linking.

We currently have a patch on the website describing how to build for


I think it'd be great to get an equivalent page for OS-X, if you'd
like to document your process formally. Just create a new .html.in
file in the docs/ directory, and add it to docs/sitemap.html.in too.
