There was some issue with pkg-config-path. I have fixed it. I see that it looks for wireshark and other dependencies. I get an error saying "remote driver is required for libvirtd daemon". I am not sure what this error means. Does it mean that I have to install wireshark or is it looking for something else. Could you please help me out here.

Hi,Thanks for your inputs. I have compiled with -Ddriver_libvirtd=enabled option. As you have mentioned, it shows missing dependencies. Let me install them and try to get libvirtd up and running.Once again, thanks for your help.On Wed, Feb 9, 2022 at 5:24 PM Peter Krempa <pkrempa@xxxxxxxxxx> wrote:On Wed, Feb 09, 2022 at 16:34:43 +0530, Sai Kiran Kumar Reddy wrote:

The libvirt daemon is integral part of the libvirt project so the
sources you used to build the library also contain the daemon sources.
In your instance it's most likely that you are missing a dependancy and
libvirtd was not auto-enabled. To force-enable it configure libvirt with
which should report what you are missing. Since you are using LFS you
need to ensure that you have all deps yourself.
