This is my first attempt at a PV guest install from scratch and I'm a
tad confused. Have I answered one of the questions virsh-install asks
Does anyone know of a general guide for installing PV guests with
virsh-install? (Most Centos docs seem to use the GUI based virt-manager
and I only have command line access).
Am I meant to make use of the files here:
Would you like a fully virtualized guest (yes or no)? This will allow
you to run unmodified operating systems. no
What is the name of your virtual machine? mg3
How much RAM should be allocated (in megabytes)? 2048
What would you like to use as the disk (file path)? /dev/data2/mg3
Would you like to enable graphics support? (yes or no) no
What is the install location?
