Actualy a Ubuntu question, not a libvirt question…
What I do in these cases, I download the packages manualy from
And instead of just doing this with the libraries, why not also with libvirt it self?
This method doesn’t guarantee a correct working of the installed packages. I’t better to upgrade your Ubuntu to a version which has the correct
package versions in the repositories.

Onderwerp: [libvirt-users] Issues with installing Libvirt 1.2.7 on Ubuntu 12.04
I am trying to manually install libvirt 1.2.7 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (64bit). I have installed libxml2-dev libgnutls-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev python-dev, but I am facing dependency issues for libdevmapper libraries.
Is there any workaround for this dependency?
OR is there any other way to install libivirt 1.2.7 on Ubuntu 12.04.
Following is the output of the error
#apt-get install libdevmapper-dev
