cannot compile libvirt on slackware64 13.1


Hi all, I am in trouble compiling libvirt (latest version 0.8.3) to use with KVM in Slackware64-13.1.
Here's the output of make:
Code:

with no luck.
Config.log is attached. Any advice?

What about trying the SlackBuild:

Tried 0.7.7 just now (with 0.8.3 sources), got same error as manual compile.

' libvirt-0.8.3 '

Quote:
link: require no space between `-L' and `/usr/lib64
cd libvirt-0.8.3/src/
grep -n "L /usr" Makefile
... The reply is : 1451:LIBPCAP_LIBS = -L /usr/lib64 -lpcap

Please edit line 1451 to : LIBPCAP_LIBS = -L/usr/lib64 -lpcap
... And make will run with no errors.

(There is the same text in the top directory Makefile line 708,
but it does not seem to disturb anything.)

The correct way with the issue would of course be to trace the bug
in Makefile.in etc., but not that easy when the files that create
the Makefile have "a thousand" upper case L.

...or you can do what I did: update tcpdump package to current stable version 4.1.1, and then compile latest libvirt.

Got libvirt 0.8.3 and virt-manager 0.8.5 humming away nicely on my servers.

Thanks, that solves!

I modified the slackbuild adding
Code:
sed "s%LIBPCAP_LIBS = -L /usr/lib64%LIBPCAP_LIBS = -L/usr/lib64%" ./src/Makefile > ./src/Makefile.tmp
mv ./src/Makefile.tmp ./src/Makefile
between configure and make commands.
I also had to comment out

Code:
mv $PKG/etc/logrotate.d/libvirtd $PKG/etc/logrotate.d/libvirtd.new
near the end of the file since 0.8.3 seems to generate no /etc/logrotate.d/libvirtd file

BTW, why does tcpdump package relate to libvirtd?
any other issue with virt-manager?

In slackware, libpcap is part of the tcpdump package.

Code:
sed -i "s%LIBPCAP_LIBS = -L /usr/lib64%LIBPCAP_LIBS = -L/usr/lib64%" ./src/Makefile
is certainly prettier; no need to move files around. The -i switch tell sed to edit the file in-place.

This appears to still be broken in 32-bit Slackware.

Code:
adam@blackflag:~$ pcap-config --libs
-L /usr/lib -lpcap
I've tested with 13.37 on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The 64-bit version correctly returns "-L/usr/lib64" but the 32-bit version has the extra, troublesome space.

Works fine in my slackware 1337
Also, I just compiled libvirt 0.9.0 in both 32bits and 64bits of 1337ness
