virt-install non-extant?

What package is virt-install part? In my libvirt
# equery f libvirt | grep inst
#
returns empty string.--MiroR (talk) 06:31, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Try equery b virt-install maybe? - Try asking on IRC! https://www.gentoo.org/get-involved/irc-channels/ Aries97 (talk) 06:40, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
Later added (because saw later): You think I didn't try?
But neither that one nor emerge -S virt-install (uppercase S) give anything.--MiroR (talk) 10:02, 23 October 2016 (UTC) Ha! This? https://packages.gentoo.org/packages/app-emulation/virt-manager Aries97 (talk) 06:46, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Aarghh! You were faster... I did figure it out of my own was just about posting about it. Thanx anyway!  ;-) .
Because I tried to install it, but it doesn't install completely on a no-dbus system like mine, and so unmerged it. Compare my OpenRC based system: no d-bus (or dbus) requrement:
Comparison_of_init_systems with the other init-system. Wouldn't go for it then. The virsh from libvirt I think I'll be using.
Pavlix, you could tell readers about these two choices! ... Hmmmh, I think it's suggested differently then what you got:
chown -R qemu:kvm /var/lib/libvirt/qemu
in libvirt docs, and in the files (lots of) in /etc/ that libvirt installs, but I've only started reading those ;-) . Not sure.--MiroR (talk) 09:45, 23 October 2016 (UTC) BTW, Aries97, I think I'll be reading your
[Encrypted Ubuntu Home/Guide] but when I find time. Whonix is first, if I make it.
As far as dbus dependency goes, it's worth knowing (learned just now, have some issues with grsecurity and downgrading, and... long story), that
app-emulation/libvirt *does not* depend on dbus, but it used to, just a few months ago! The libvirt--1.3.5-r2 I can't install because of that, but the recent libvirt don't depend on dbus.--MiroR (talk) 11:51, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
