Libvirt installation from source - CentOS
I am currently using Centos 6. I want to use the latest version of libvirt (libvirt 0.9.4). The machine already has libvirt 0.8.1 installed . I did yum remove libvirt to remove the existing libvirt and I compiled 0.9.4 from source using :

./configure --prefix=/


make install


/etc/init.d/libvirtd start

After the installation is complete, I wanted to use the virsh interface. Once I enter virsh , I get :

virsh /lib/ version 'LIBVIRT_PRIVATE 0.8.1' not found (required by virsh)

Can somone let me know how to solve this issue? Correct me if I am doing something wrong. Thanks a lot !
