I need to install a recent version of libvirt-bin from the official source code repositories, and I would like to be able to use virt-manager as a frontend to create virtual machines, with OpenGL support.

The big issue I'm having right now, is that virt-manager depends on libvirt-glib-1.0.0, which in turn depends on libvirt0, which completely breaks recent versions of libvirt-bin.

Anyway, I have a couple of questions:

  1. Is it somehow possible to successfully install and use virt-manager with a recent version of libvirt-bin?
  2. If it's not, to whom should I report the issue? the guys making virt-manager, Cannonical, RedHat, all of them, or none?
  3. Is it still possible to use older versions of libvirt/qemu-kvm/virt-manager to do OpenGL and/or PCI passthrough?
  • Please consider posting your third question as a different question. Then you can give a link to this question to let us know the situation is the same. – Vylix Jun 27 '17 at 3:45
  • At least the current virt-manager just as a general requirement for lib-virt-glib and not specifically for version 1.0. Did you check whenever recent versions of virt-manager would work? – Seth Jun 27 '17 at 6:36
