My appologies for I'm sure this is a simple question for those with a small ammount of knowledge I do not possess.
I installed libvirt via apt-get and it created the directories /var/lib/libvirt and /etc/libvirt, however this was a rather outdated version of libvirt and I needed the plan 9 support of the newer versions. I got the latest release tarball and built and installed libvirt from this (as here http://libvirt.org/compiling.html
) however these directories were not created. I could easily create them again, but (re)creating their contents could be more of a challenge.
Am I missing an installation step? Did I miss some ./configure option? or are the contents of these folders non consequential?
