Re: apt libvirt package

Do you want this on CentOS 8, Ubuntu 20.04, or something else?  The help we can give you will vary quite considerably depending on the distro you use; and, as you point out, RedHat-derived and Debian-derived distributions are very different.

For CentOS, do you have the advanced virtualization repo enabled?

Hello again,


So I have been struggling to compile the libvirt newest version  7.8.0.  I am running CentOS 8 and during the meson build process I am getting non stop dependency fails.  I keep installing the necessary packages and slowly progressing.  Now the last one that stopped was gnutls.  When I go to install that package   via  yum install gnutls -y it says that it is already complete and installed.   Sigh…….


I am very surprised that there is no package for libvirt via rpm,yum etc… the lastest one installed via yum was 6.0.0.


Can someone help by pointing to some where that has these latest packages?  Or how best to compile this from source.  It is amazing how much is missing from this distro.


Thanks again.

Subject: apt libvirt package




I am new to kvm/qemu/libvirt.  I am loving it.  I am working on setting my first vm with shared file system with virtio-fs.  I got an error, and google foo said, my version was too old.  When I checked it said.


libvirt version: 6.0.0, package: 0ubuntu8.14 (Matthew Ruffell matthew.ruffell@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Tue, 14 Sep 2021 14:00:49 +1200)


I used apt package manager to install libvirt. I am running on ubuntu 20.04.  I have tried apt update libvirt and I updates available.  What do I do at this point?  Do I have to build it from source?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
