title="Improve libvirt support in NetBSD pkgsrc"

[tech-pkg](, [port-xen](

[Jean-Yves Migeon](

duration="1-3 weeks, depending on targetted operating system"

[Libvirt]( is a project that aims at bringing
yet-another-level of abstraction to the management of different virtualization
technologies; it supports a wide range of virtualization technologies, like Xen, VMWare, KVM and containers.

A package for
libvirt was added to pkgsrc under [[!template id=pkg category=sysutils name=libvirt]], however it requires more testing before
all platforms supported by pkgsrc can also seamlessly support libvirt.

The purpose of this
project is to investigate what is missing in libvirt (in terms of patches or system integration)
so it can work out-of-the-box for platforms that can benefit from it. GNU/Linux, NetBSD, FreeBSD and
Solaris are the main targets.
