Ubuntu 8.04 server amd64, headless
The server is running ready to install guest OS remotely.
I'm prepared to install Ubuntu 6.06 server amd64 as guest. I don't have its ISO.image. But I have its CD installer which was made by burning its ISO image.
Any folk has followed before;
I don't understand following steps;
# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0002c5b4
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 31 248976 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 32 19457 156039345 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 32 19457 156039313+ 8e Linux LVM
I already ran;
# qemu-img create -f qcow2 ubuntu6.06.img 10G
Formatting 'ubuntu6.06.img', fmt=qcow2, size=10485760 kB
# find / -name ubuntu6.06.img
I can ssh connect the server. Do I need to start the installation with the VNC option?
I don't have VNC running on the server. Which of the following packages needed to install?
kvm -hda disk01.img -cdrom os.iso -m 512 -boot d -vnc IP:1
I suppose here replacing;
disk01.img with "ubuntu6.04.img"
os.iso with "/path/to/cdrom"
What shall I replace hda here?
Do I need to run;
kvm -hda disk01.img -m 512 -boot c -net nic,vlan=0,macaddr=00:16:3e:00:00:01 -net tap -nographic -daemonize
Please shed me some light. TIA
