Packaging virt-manager for Ubuntu04 Jun 2007
I have been trying to do it myself but it isn’t as easy as I thought… I have never really tried packaging anything before (apart from my wallpapers which doesn’t really have any dependencies or make files).
Virtual Machine Manager has the following dependancies (taken from
python >= 2.4 pygtk2 >= 1.99.12-6 gnome-python2-gconf >= 1.99.11-7 libvirt-python >= 0.2.1 dbus-python >= 0.61 gnome-python-desktop >= 2.15.4 libxml2-python >= 2.6.23 vte >= 0.12.2 virtinst >= 0.103.0
Identified corespondent packages in Ubuntu:
python Version: 2.5.1-0ubuntu3 python-gtk2 Version: 2.10.4-0ubuntu3 python-gconf Version: 2.18.0-0ubuntu1 python-libvirt Version: 0.1.8-0ubuntu2 python-dbus Version: 0.80.2-1ubuntu2 python-gnome2-desktop Version: 2.18.0-0ubuntu3 python-libxml2 Version: 2.6.27.dfsg-1ubuntu3 libvte9 Version: 1:0.16.1-0ubuntu1 virtinst (downloadable from `virt-manager`'s homepage)
virtinst would need packaging as well… download
virtinst. The version of
phyton-libvirt isn’t new enough either.
I have been looking at a Ubuntu packaging guide but have already run into trouble (even before getting to phyton-libvirt):
... checking for PYGTK2... configure: error: Package requirements (pygtk-2.0 >= 1.99.11) were not met: No package 'pygtk-2.0' found Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix. Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PYGTK2_CFLAGS and PYGTK2_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details. make: *** [config.status] Error 1
