in reply to C headers not found when installing Sys::Virt on CentOS

Just want to point out that 'libvirt' and 'libvirt-devel' are two different RPM packages - at least they are for CentOS 7.2. You indicate that you are seeing messages about 'libvirt' not being installed. Out of curiosity, have you installed the 'libvirt' package?

    Took the words right out of my mouth. The "-devel" packages have headers used for compilation of code, but the libvirt package itself is what contains the drivers/binaries that you'll need for your project.

    Yes I did have the libvirt package installed as well, though I would have thought (but did not check) that it is a dependency of the '-devel' package, so will get installed automaticaly along with it.
