    Hi folks,


    Host - Ubuntu 9.10 64bit
    Virtualizer - KVM


    I followed;
    Virtualization With KVM On Ubuntu 9.10
    http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualization-with-kvm-on-ubuntu-9.10


    to install this Virtual Machine. The steps worked without problem. But I have following points can't be resolved:-


    1)
    I can't find the option on vmbuilder for selecting the packages to install. (no GUI)

    2)
    If the OS to be installed is an iso image what command shall I run, especially Windows?

    3)
    I tried to run "rdesktop" to connect the VM without success. I have no idea what shall I replace for "abcd", e.g

    $ rdesktop -a 16 -N 192.168.0.200:abcd

    192.168.0.200 is the host ip address.

    4)
    Finally I install virt-manager. It works to connect the VM

    Please help. TIA

    vmbuilder is for installing Ubuntu guests - you cannot use it for other distributions or even Windows.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Then what will be the advantage running vmbuilder with only limited use building ubuntu guests?

    It allows you to create Ubuntu guests without the need for a GUI or remote desktop connection.
