[libvirt-users] About libvirtd daemon start issue

Hi libvirt team,

I found there are very few documents to mention how to launch a libvirtd daemon when built from the source code. A moment ago, I un-install all the kvm related stuff (kvm module, libvirt, virt-manager, virsh, qemu-kvm...) from my ubuntu system.
Then I built the libvirt from the source tar package:

1. #./autogen.sh --system --with-phyp --enable-debug=yes CFLAGS=-g
2. #make
3. #make install

Everything is OK :), but wait a minute --

According to the instruction in libvirt.org, the option flag "--system" in above step 1 will make the environment is the same as the pre-built package installation, eg, apt-get install ... because I found that the "libvirtd" daemon is not active with "ps aux | grep libvirtd", so I try to start it manually:

Method 1: root dennis-:/home/dennis/workspace/AIX# service libvirtd start
libvirtd: unrecognized service

Method 2: root dennis-:/home/dennis/workspace/AIX# /etc/init.d/libvirtd start
bash: /etc/init.d/libvirtd: No such file or directory

Method 3: root dennis-:/home/dennis/workspace/AIX# /usr/sbin/libvirtd start
2012-07-05 09:20:42.225+0000: 32749: info : libvirt version: 0.9.12
2012-07-05 09:20:42.225+0000: 32749: error : virDomainDefParseXML:8303 : unknown OS type hvm

I don't know if the method 3 is success or not, but I have no time to verify it now, because I have to leave the office now for the later traffic jam... Why "unknow OS type hvm"?

If my experiment is useful, then please document it in the libvirt.org page...
