Installing Libvirt with ESX support

Most distributions do not include the support for VMware hypervisor in the Libvirt package, so we should probably recompile it.

Browse to http://libvirt.org/ and click on Downloads | Official Releases | HTTP Server and download the latest libvirt-x.x.x.tar.gz package. Unpack it on your frontend and install some required build-dependencies using the following command:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential gnutls-dev libdevmapper-dev python-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libnl-dev

In order to configure, build, and install use the following commands:

$ ./configure –with-esx

$ sudo make install
$ sudo ldconfig
