Re: [libvirt-users] Installing tcp/ssh drivers for libvirt

Hi Eric,

I'm trying to install the drivers on XenServer 6.0.2 and on Centos 5.2/6.4.  I downloaded libvirt 1.1.3.  So, if I try to configure w/ xen and libxl, the configure script errors out saying -

configure: error: You must install the libxl Library from Xen >= 4.2 to compile libxenlight driver with -lxl

btw, I am trying to compile this on XenServer6.0.2 itself, and plan to use virsh on the Centos 5.2/6.4 running on it.  

Any guidance you could provide, on how to go about this?

You didn't tell us what distro you are using.  There's plenty of rpms,
but without that detail, we can't tell you which ones to use.

In the Fedora distro, the daemon is already part of the main Fedora
repository.  You can also use the fedora-virt-preview repo to use the
latest virt stack while still sticking to a stable release (ie. right
now, that provides rawhide's libvirt 1.1.3 on top of Fedora 19, instead
of being stuck at 1.0.5).


If you are using something like RHEL, then contact your vendor.  If you
are using something like CentOS, then you get to enjoy the consequences
of a distro with no formal support.
