I got your point, thanks a lot!

I think the self-build libvirt didn't start, but there is no libvirt-bin
under /etc/init.d/, don't know how to start it, and  $ initctl start
libvirt-bin    shows unknow job: libvirt-bin.

I remember compile and installed libvirt before, but don't remember the
parameters passed when configure it, just make uninstall, make clean before
this newly installation.

Thanks a lot!
