Blivet depends on some C libraries that are not available on PyPI so you need to install these manually.

The main dependencies include libblockdev, libbytesize, parted and their Python bindings. These libraries should be available on most distributions in the standard repositories.

To install these dependencies use following commands:

  • On Fedora and RHEL/CentOS based distributions:

    # dnf install python3-blockdev libblockdev-plugins-all python3-bytesize libbytesize python3-pyparted parted libselinux-python3
  • On Debian and Ubuntu based distributions:

    # apt-get install python3-blockdev python3-bytesize python3-parted python3-selinux gir1.2-blockdev-3.0 libblockdev-lvm3 libblockdev-btrfs3 libblockdev-swap3 libblockdev-loop3 libblockdev-crypto3 libblockdev-mpath3 libblockdev-dm3 libblockdev-mdraid3 libblockdev-nvdimm3



Developer documentation is available on our website or on Read the Docs.
