Well, it's not the minimal build choice, as I just tried the howto using a "Basic" install from the full CentOS 6.3 64bit DVD and got the same error.

G'Day,

My Centos was fresh from the Live DVD 64bit. Selinux was disabled.
The only item I could see different were around the following.

As CentOS 6 is based on RedHat 6, and RedHat has dropped support for Xen in version 6, we need to get Xen from a third-party repository. We can enable the repo as follows:

yum install http://au1.mirror.crc.id.au/repo/ker...6-3.noarch.rpm

I think the xen release is a different version than that installed in the Howto?

Kind Regards

Peter

No, I don't think so.

It has to do with the xen version. I compiled 4.2 from source and then tried to compile the latest version of libvirt from source and received the same errors.

When I installed xen 4.1 from source I had no issues with libvirt.

Peter - You'll want the 4.1 source for Xen, not libvirt. I think this is it:

Looks like currently available libvirt version is not compatible with 4.2 per comments on this page:

+1 reporting the same issue, SELinux is disabled and compiling libvirt fails as others have quoted.

Is there a workaround?

Unfortunately, I wasn't skilled enough to figure out a workaround. I moved on to using KVM instead. The HowTo on the site was quite instructive:

I cleared away the source in ~root/rpmbuild, re-installed, and attempted the rpmbuild with the unpatched spec file.

The result was the same - building libvirt fails whether or not Xen is enabled. Which begs the question, how'd they do it in the first place?
