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

I will create a specific sub-dir and let you know.

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

 Okidoc, I have mirrored those 2 at

I guess the best way if you want to maintain OS X builds is to create
a specific subdir on the HTTP server (or even better FTP) that you
can populate with updates, and I can mirror them for example twice a
day. Just tell me where you end up creating the repository !

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"

 Hum ...

- Configure

--prefix=/opt/libvirt/ --without-sasl --without-avahi --without-
--without-python --without-xen --without-qemu --without-lxc --
openvz --without-libvirtd --without-uml

- Apply patches


    #ifndef MODPROBE
    #define MODPROBE 0

 Actually one really expect a string, so I just defined it to
"modprobe" instead.


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

 That's bizarre ...

WEXITSTATUS is defined in virsh.c:

# define WEXITSTATUS(x) ((x) & 0xff)

it's used only once at the place you pointed out:

   if (command_ret != WEXITSTATUS (0)) {

I think it was used for cygwin portability, but in that
case I would have expected

   if (WEXITSTATUS(command_ret) != 0) {

Why did this break on OS-X ?

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

- Compile

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

 What about detecting MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, because I assume it
will change from one environment to another, do this in configure.in and
export is in all Makefiles.am ? There must be a way to export the env
variable from the generated Makefiles surely...
