KVM Having problem In fedora 10 With no-gui
Last modified: 2009-03-01 14:25:58 EST
Description of problem:
From past few days i am trying to install VM via virt-install qemu-kvm on fedora 10 .My all server at remote site and no GUI is running.So i need to install via SSH.When ever i install it and give -nographic command line switch it just hang and never come back.I paste you my steps so you all can see.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.qemu-img create -f qcow2 disk.img 5G
2.virt-install --name demo --ram 500 --file /var/lib/xen/images/disk.img --nographics --location http://fedora.inode.at/fedora/linux/releases/10/Fedora/i386/os/
3.qemu-kvm -hda disk.img -cdrom fedora10.iso -m 512 -boot d -nographic
IN Case 2 : it just hang on creating domains.And never return console back
IN CASE 3 :shell hangs up and never come back .
Then in both case need to use kill command to kill process.
Its should work how its documented.

virt-install is connecting to the serial console, but the guest isn't using the serial console.
Try supplying -x "console=ttyS0" on the virt-install command line. Also, note that VNC installs are incredibly useful - try -x "console=ttyS0 vnc". See:
Thanks, -x console=ttySO worked for me.
Now I am getting following error after TCP/IP Manual/ DHCP Configuration Network Settings

I have tested the same with local NAP IP '192.168.122.3/255.255.255.0 and live IP's, virt-install is unable to download install.img.
Any idea ?
i have also tested with NFS, there is something wrong in network connection and seems a bug.
