how to upgrade libvirt?

TieDad asked:

I’m trying to install openstack on RHEL 6.2. Following installation guide from openstack.org, I’m using the command:

yum install openstack-nova openstack-glance

After resolved many dependencies, I got the final error:

Error: Package: openstack-nova-compute-2012.2.2-1.el6.noarch (epel)
       Requires: libvirt >= 0.9.6
       Installed: libvirt-0.9.4-23.el6.x86_64 (@anaconda-RedHatEnterpriseLinux-201111171049.x86_64/6.2)
           libvirt = 0.9.4-23.el6

I installed libvirt 0.9.4 from the RHEL 6.2 DVD, but it seems I have to upgrade libvirt 0.9.6. How to do the upgrade? Or where can I download libvirt 0.9.6 rpm? Or can I use yum to upgrade libvirt?

My answer:


Update to RHEL 6.3 first. This contains libvirt 0.9.10, which will satisfy the dependency.
