Re: [virt-tools-list] VirtInstall - error validating install location / global name 'virGetLastError' is not defined


I compiled libvirt form the latest git right now and I still see the same problem.

This is a bug in the 1.0.2 version of libvirt. I guess the slackware
maintainers deployed that version without backporting the bug fix for
it :-( File a bug with slackware asking them to apply the following
two patches from upstream

commit 25ea8e47e74def560bf89cd94dd54b75ca5ff4d6

    Fix missing error constants in libvirt python module

    The previous change to the generator, changed too much - only
    the functions are in 'virerror.c', the constants remained in
    'virerror.h' which could not be renamed for API compat reasons.

    Add a test case to sanity check the generated python bindings

commit a6b8bae5a6a4752926eba409202ec061d81c6c8a

    complete virterror->virerror name change

    Without these two string changes in generator.py, the
    virGetLastError wrapper does not get created in
    /usr/share/pyshared/libvirt.py.  Noticed when running
    tests with virt-install.
