The build aborted because pod2man was not available.

You should add pod2man to the dependencies.

@dreieck libvirt-sandbox builds binaries which are injected into VMs, so these binaries must be staticly linked to function properly. So there has to be static versions of some dependencies too.

Why is xz-static a makedepend? Why cannot standard xz be used?

@svinto, to fix that error you have to enable some type of kernel security module. After much debugging, I found the issue lies in a call to getcon() returning -1 (presumably because no kernel security was set up on my machine? -- I wasn't able to find the source for that function anywhere). Anyway, through much keyboard grinding and finally a little deductive reasoning, I found that simply enabling apparmor in the kernel fixed the issue. See That still leaves me with another issue that I haven't bothered resolving. From the man page (-r option): NB. "DIR" must contain a matching install of the libvirt-sandbox package. This restriction may be lifted in a future version. I think it's due to my target image not having the package (it's Debian for Christ's sake) as to why it gets past the "Unable to get SELinux context of user: Invalid argument" but hangs indefinitely on a 20M image.

I'm getting SELinux errors when virt-manager tries to run virt-sandbox. I'm not sure if this is a problem with this AUR package, or if I have done something wrong. Any help is appreciated.

I tried to use virt-manager to create a LXC operating system container, and used the source URI: docker://archlinux

When I execute the command that virt-manager tries to run I get the same error as virt-manager:

$ virt-sandbox --security=inherit -c qemu:///session --name=bootstrap_156213 -m host-bind:/mnt=/home/svintoo/.local/share/libvirt/filesystems/arch-container -- /bin/tar xf /home/svintoo/.cache/virt-bootstrap/docker_images/cb935d5e749430e85932672b87cad9b38f00b683af62df0c8c08b6694db381e7 -C /mnt --exclude dev/* --exclude */.wh.* --overwrite --absolute-names

Please, add xz-static-git as makedepend Anyway, build fails

any chance of this getting fixed? I don't know how. Here's the output of the rpc missing, in case it's helpful:

CC libvirt_sandbox_1_0_la-libvirt-sandbox-console-rpc.lo In file included from ../libvirt-sandbox/libvirt-sandbox-rpcpacket.h:26, from libvirt-sandbox-console-rpc.c:34: ../libvirt-sandbox/libvirt-sandbox-protocol.h:9:10: fatal error: rpc/rpc.h: No such file or directory #include <rpc rpc.h=""></rpc>

spacepluk commented on 2018-05-25 19:07 (UTC)

it's also missing libguestfs

Build stage fails. It requires rpcgen, but it is not present. Add rpcsvc-proto as makedepend Anyway, build fails due to rpc.h missing
