Basic Install

For starters, if you just want to run virt-manager/virt-install to test out changes, it can be done from the source directory:

./virt-manager

To install the software into /usr/local (usually), you can do:

./setup.py install

To build an RPM, you can run:

./setup.py rpm

setup.py generally has all the build and install commands, for more info see:

Pre-requisite software

A detailed dependency list can be found in virt-manager.spec.in file.

Minimum version requirements of major components:

  • python >= 3.3
  • gtk3 >= 3.14
  • libvirt-python >= 0.6.0
  • pygobject3 >= 3.14
  • libosinfo >= 0.2.10

On Debian or Ubuntu based distributions, you need to install the gobject-introspection bindings for some dependencies like libvirt-glib and libosinfo. Look for package names that start with 'gir', for example gir1.2-libosinfo-1.0.
