libvirt-python 2.5.0

The libvirt virtualization API

Libvirt Python Binding README

This package provides a python binding to the, and library APIs.

It is written to build against any version of libvirt that
is 0.9.11 or newer.

This code is distributed under the terms of the LGPL version
2 or later.

The module can be built by following the normal python module
build process

python build
sudo python install

or to install as non-root

python build
python install --user

If python-nose is installed, you can test the package with

python test

A makefile shim is provided so that you can do

make && make check

rather than directly invoking

As of libvirt 1.2.6, it is possible to develop against an uninstalled
libvirt.git checkout, by setting PKG_CONFIG_PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH
environment variables to point into that libvirt tree; you can even
automate this by using libvirt's run script:

/path/to/libvirt/run python build

Patches for this code should be sent to the main libvirt
development mailing list

To send patches, it is strongly recommended to use the
'git send-email' command.

Make sure the mails mention that the patch is for the python
binding. This can be done by setting a config parameter in the
local git checkout

git config format.subjectprefix "PATCH python"
