I have trouble to install oVirt-0.9.4 from source.
I attempted to do it in accordance with (http://www.ovirt.org/build-instructions.html),
but I encountered error messages as follows when the command "make build" executed in oVirt Makefile directory.


+ ln -s /root/ovirt-cache/appliance-tmp tmp
++ pwd
+ sudo su - -c 'cd /root/rpmbuild/BUILD/ovirt-appliance-0.94 &&
appliance-creator --config ovirt-appliance.ks --name ovirt-appliance
Unable to load kickstart file 'ovirt-appliance.ks' : Failed to read
kickstart file 'ovirt-appliance.ks' : OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or
directory: '/usr/share/appliance-tools/base-pkgs.ks'
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.72219 (%build)

RPM build errors:
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.72219 (%build)
make[1]: *** [rpms] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/ovirt/appliance'
make: *** [publish] Error 1


My machine don't have the directory "/usr/share/appliance-tools/".
I cannot imagine how to solve.
Please tell me a bit of clue to solve.
Kernel version is "2.6.25-14.fc9.i686".

Works for me.
