Usually no: Command not found means that ./configure didn't find a dependency it needs. In these cases it sets the command variable to "no", and the program will later try to run it. You'll need to give a lot more context in order to diagnose what exactly the missing dependency is.

What's going on with hivex??!! The hivex-git package fails compilation with 'no: Command not found'?

perl-libintl-perl should be in depends instead of makedepends. Otherwise, the following error is given when running virt-list-filesystems:

Can't locate Locale/ in @INC (you may need to install the Locale::TextDomain module) (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.28/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.28/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.28/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl) at /sbin/virt-list-filesystems line 25.

Yes sorry about that. I've uploaded one now (appliance-1.40.1.tar.xz)

@rwmjones There is no binary appliance for 1.40x in

I cannot update the software to the latest version.

Is there a way to view the latest package build logs?

I get the following error

$ pacman -Qs libguestfs local/libguestfs 1.38.6-1 Access and modify virtual machine disk image

$ guestfish get-memsize guestfish: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm going to guess that line 85 expands to PYTHON=python (or python2). In that case yes sanerb is correct that you should point PYTHON to the python3 binary, build libguestfs only once, and it should then work fine with Python 3.

This is assuming that you don't need to use Python 2 as well. If you need Python 2 to work you will have to build libguestfs twice, see the Fedora spec file for how to do that.

Hi -

You need to build against python3, as that's the system's default. I maintain python-libguestfs and you break python 3 support with line 85.

For further information, see the bug report:

Thank you for maintaining this. One suggestion though; it would be much better if this was our last stop for getting this package. Currently we need to chase down hivex from AUR as well.
