I double-checked with the upstream folks, and the install rules for Wireshark plugin doesn't have /*/ in there. > - qemu 2.11 built perfectly with zero change. > > - libguestfs 1.36.13 only needed to have fdisk replaced by util-linux as > build-depends (fdisk is now a separate package in Buster). Great. Note: You don't even have to build the versions from 'Buster', which are quite new. Just the slightly more conservative libvirt 3.2.0 and QEMU 2.9.0 -- only if it's possbile.

That said ... I just spent comparing the release notes of libvirt 3.0.0 and libvirt 3.2.0. By using libvirt 3.2.0 and QEMU 2.9.0, Debian users will be spared from a lot of critical bugs (see all the list in ) in CPU comparision area.  https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvirt-announce/2017-April/msg00000.html -- Release of libvirt-3.2.0  https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvirt-announce/2017-January/msg00003.html -- Release of libvirt-3.0.0  https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2017-February/msg01295.html [...] -- /kashyap _______________________________________________ OpenStack-operators mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-operators
