Re: [alpine-devel] [2.7] main/collectd added libvirt sub package
I can confirm that the libvirt plugin does not come with either collectd or
libvirt or libvirt-dev in 2.7 :
guest1:/usr/lib/collectd# apk info | egrep "libvirt|collectd"
guest1:/usr/lib/collectd# find . -name "*virt*"
guest1:/usr/lib/collectd# apk search collectd-libvirt
guest1:/usr/lib/collectd# uname -a
Linux guest1 3.10.23-vs188.8.131.52 #1-Alpine SMP Tue Dec 10 15:50:05 UTC 2013
guest1:/usr/lib/collectd# cat /etc/alpine-release
