The plugin should still be installed using `vagrant plugin install vagrant-libvirt` as a normal user.
Vagrant will find all the required ruby gems already installed and will just mark the plugin as installed in `~/.vagrant.d/plugins.json` without compiling anything.

With vagrant 2.2.0-2, the plugin fails to install:

Building native extensions. This could take a while... Traceback (most recent call last): 14: from /opt/vagrant/embedded/gems/gems/vagrant-2.2.0/bin/vagrant:164:in <main>' (...) 1: from /opt/vagrant/embedded/gems/gems/vagrant-2.2.0/plugins/commands/plugin/action/install_gem.rb:30:incall' /opt/vagrant/embedded/gems/gems/vagrant-2.2.0/lib/vagrant/plugin/manager.rb:156:in install_plugin': undefined methodname' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)

But using the full path to the gem file works fine: vagrant plugin install /opt/vagrant/embedded/gems/cache/vagrant-libvirt-0.0.45.gem

  1. Do $ vagrant plugin install pkg-config pkg-config to skip pkg-config could not be used to find libxml-2.0 problem.

  2. Remove 'vagrant-libvirt' AUR package and install it via vagrant $ vagrant plugin install vagrant-libvirt to skip compilation problem.

Tried to follow all your suggestions without any success. Actually I am able to install vagrant-libvirt but I am not able to 'vagrant plugin install vagrant-libvirt' ...

hereafter the error log:

vagrant plugin install vagrant-libvirt Installing the 'vagrant-libvirt' plugin. This can take a few minutes... Building native extensions. This could take a while... Bundler, the underlying system Vagrant uses to install plugins, reported an error. The error is shown below. These errors are usually caused by misconfigured plugin installations or transient network issues. The error from Bundler is:

thanks in advance for the help

The package is missing "ruby" from it's dependencies.

wyvie commented on 2017-08-17 20:54

Could you please fix the upload method?

Error while uploading image to storage pool: undefined method `upload' for #<Libvirt::StorageVol:0x00000717d5bc90>

After the last update (11 Jul) I've been encountering this error on `vagrant up`:
Any ideas how to fix it?

Upd: managed to get it working after i altered the PKGBUILD:


Though something tells me it's not a very nice solution.

@firecat53 see [1] and [2]. you can try to downgrade vagrant-substrate to 605.0566498-1 untile the issues are resolved.


firecat53 commented on 2017-06-20 22:50

Installed this package, then attempted to run `vagrant plugin install vagrant-libvirt` with this error:

Perhaps vagrant-mutate is missing?

vagrant init ubuntu/xenial64
Vagrant failed to initialize at a very early stage:

The plugins failed to initialize correctly. This may be due to manual
modifications made within the Vagrant home directory. Vagrant can
attempt to automatically correct this issue by running:

vagrant plugin repair

If Vagrant was recently updated, this error may be due to incompatible
versions of dependencies. To fix this problem please remove and re-install
all plugins. Vagrant can attempt to do this automatically by running:

vagrant plugin expunge --reinstall

Error message given during initialization: Unable to resolve dependency: user requested 'vagrant-mutate (> 0)'

Any ideas?

@wilga comment is very helpful. Please, @mtorromeo, update PKGBUILD accroding to that comment!

wilga commented on 2017-04-14 21:37

Works for me on current Arch (with ruby 2.4) with these 2 changes:

1. export CONFIGURE_ARGS="with-ldflags='-L/opt/vagrant/embedded/lib' with-libvirt-include=/usr/include with-libvirt-lib=/usr/lib"
2. save $PATH before gem-install loop, restore after

No clean chroot required.
