build failed without perl-xml-xpath for me

+1 for removing the "--without-xen" option.

trixpan commented on 2014-03-31 13:39

is there a reason for voluntarily disabling xen driver since the auto-config checks for Xens existence during run?

I wonder if anyone was able to compile this lately. It compiles fine on my development system but it fails with doc and html missing errors I want to install it. What about enabling sanlock.

Please correct your PKGBUILD following teekay comment.

Can not build :
mv: cannot stat ‘/developement/aur/libvirt-git/pkg/libvirt-git/lib/*’: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

teekay commented on 2014-02-13 11:34

Please use
so configure is run only once.

Also the "mv $pkgdir/lib .." line is not needed anymore (actually, package() fails now as they moved that /lib dir to /usr/lib upstream it seems)

teekay commented on 2013-11-08 15:25

Could you please change




as this breaks LXC domains which have /usr/lib/libvirt/libvirt_lxc configured as hypervisor (like, when moving from libvirt to libvirt-git and vice versa).

@ironicbadger: I can't confirm this yet. Tried to compile libvirt-git in a clean chroot-environement but it still fails with all the docbook generation.
