thats message appears (in english or with your locales) when pass from libvirt [community] to libvirt-git

The post install has been updated with systemd texts next to the init-v texts. The Spanish texts I have not been able to find, so these are not updated.

>>> To start libvirtd run: '/etc/rc.d/libvirtd start' as root.

>>> Be sure to see optdepends as you may find some of them helpfull.
>>> Especially: bridge-utils, dnsmasq, and >>hal<<.

this is too old (in the .install file)

I have recreated the xhtml-docs package and for me it works.
Does it work for you?

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2015-10-19 20:13

The package xhtml-docs got lost in the migration of AUR3 to AUR4.
In the upcoming weeks I will lookup the package in the archives and recreate it.

If that is done, I will post another comment here.

error: target not found: xhtml-docs

I agree with the git version to be close to the stable version. However I disagree with the --without-xen parameter in the stable version. :) I have tried to contact the package owner multiple times, but I have not got any response. Since I am using Xen and I see no reason to block it, while it has an auto-detect mechanism, I believe this option should be removed.

For the xhtml errors, I had the same building issue. As workaround I removed the docbook-xml package, deleted the /etc/xml folder and installed docbook-xml again. This time I get many warnings, but it does not stop the building process. HTH.

Tried compiling today, and it didn't really work for me... namely the XHTML validation stuff is borked. I've updated the PKGBUILD to suite my needs and in keeping with my previous point [1].

I'm looking to get numad support[2], so I did flip that configure switch in the PKGBUILD above.

So I updated the xhtml-docs AUR package[3], and things are building swimmingly. As to whether or not libvirt will allow auto NUMA placement, that remains to be seen.


rbellamy commented on 2015-02-22 22:34

I disagree with the the idea of removing the --without-xen, mostly because I think it's generally best for the *-git PKGBUILD to mirror, as closely as possible, the one found in the official repos.

That way, if someone wants something ALMOST like that which is in the official repos, but with say just a single config switch thrown differently (as in the xen switch or whatever) they can just download the PKGBUILD from the AUR, make their change, and be done...

I have just taken ownership of this package with the purpose of improving the package.

@Trialuser: I noticed the same before, therefore I have added this to the dependency list.

I have also removed all the options, which fix the build for a certain configuration, such as the 'without-xen' option. Most of the options are auto-detected by the configuration tool.

The audit package is not a dependency anymore, but optional.

Any suggestions for improvement are welcome.
