I downloaded and installed the latest OS updates this morning. A package called libvirt was upgraded from version 4.5.0 to 4.6.0 which makes Virtual Machine Manager fail. The issue is well documented here:
I tried for many hours to downgrade manually to libvirt 4.5.0. I managed to extract the libvirt-4.5.0-tar.xz into a folder. Then inside this folder I ran in Terminal:
After some time it stops with the error:
configure: error: You must install the gnutls >= 3.2.0 pkg-config module to compile libvirt
So I tried to install gnutls. When doing ./configure I get another error:
*** Libnettle 3.1 was not found.
That’s where I stopped.
My question is: would it be possible for the pureOS repo to downgrade the libvirt package from 4.6.0 to 4.5.0? After that I would assume that if I ran
sudo apt update
then the libvirt package will automatically point to the 4.5.0 version.
This issue is quite critical to me as I am not able to run any virtual machines on my Librem anymore due to this.
Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
