    Hi folks,

    Debian 5.0 - host
    KVM

    I have the captioned KVM box running. Client vm10 was installed from net.iso CD and vm11 cloned on vm10. Both are now running without problem.

    Now I want to create vm12 running Fedora/Ubuntu direct installed on Internet. Please advise the steps/command to be run. Pointer would be appreciated.

    TIA

    That should work the same way as for the other vms you created.

    Hi falko,


    I ran following command installing Ubuntu 9.04 as client;

    Code:
    $ sudo virt-install --connect qemu:///system -n vm13 -r 512 --vcpus=2 -f ~/vm13.qcow2 -s 12 -c ~/mini.iso --vnc --noautoconsole --os-type linux --accelerate --network=bridge:br0 --hvm
    
    Its netinstall iso image is on "mini.iso" which I have download.


    Now if to install Fedora 11 direct on Internet whether run following command;
    Code:
    $ sudo virt-install --connect qemu:///system -n vm14 -r 512 --vcpus=2 -f ~/vm14.qcow2 -s 12 -l http://host/path --vnc --noautoconsole --os-type linux --accelerate --network=bridge:br0 --hvm

    ???


    I tried run "virt-manager" to install Fedora 11 without success. Because;

    On "Choosing installation method" page

    On "OS_Variant" box, I can't find Fedora 11. Only Fedora 10/9/8 etc. there. I haver no idea how to proceed further.

    I'd select Fedora 10.
