I tried install OpenStack on CentOS 5.6 using following guide: http://wiki.openstack.org/NovaInstall/CentOSNotes (http://wiki.openstack.org/NovaInstall...) [root@nova-cluster1 nova]# /usr/bin/nova-compute --verbose=1 --nodaemon --flagfile /etc/nova/nova.conf 2011-04-21 15:00:42,580 ERROR nova.compute.manager [-] Unable to load the virtualization driver: No module named libvirt Problem is libvirt-python doesn't contained in centos repos and can't be installed over easy_install as well, it looks like dead end, how can I solve it?

Max, if Russian is your native you could use Russian OpenStack Community google group here: http://groups.google.com/group/openstack-russia (http://groups.google.com/group/openst...) .

Unfortunately, CentOS 5.6 and RHEL6 seems has to much differences.

Max, there are plenty of people in OpenStack community which need to run OpenStack on top of CentOS. You can contribute your work and create your own, CentOS/RHEL 5.x branch of RPM packages using our sources by yourself: https://github.com/abrindeyev/openstack-nova-rhel6 (https://github.com/abrindeyev/opensta...)

Feel free to contribute your patches back via GitHub.
