I just hate KDE (sorry). What you did should work on KDE

Could you try bring up local Apache :-

# service httpd start
# mkdir /var/www/html/f13
# mount -o loop,ro f13.iso  /var/www/html/f13

It creates local mirror at http://IP-Dom0/f13 . Just launch browser to this URL
and make sure.

Run :-

virt-install -n VF13 -r 1024 --vnc -f /dev/sdb7 -l http://IP-Dom0/f13 --debug

I did this install 1000 times and never had a problems with F13,12,11 PV DomUs
creating when Gnome (KDE) is fine at Xen Dom0 ( up to 4.0.1)

Are you saying that virt-install F13 via local Apache Mirror or NFS share fails to run
in Gnome env ?

@Boris, I am running KDE. Does pvops only work on Gnome?

What you mean saying "F13 image"  ? How it was created ?


@Boris, good question. I think this is where my problem lies, because my knowledge of making guest images is 2 years out of date and based on Xen 3.0, i.e. building them by hand, using dd and loopback. For pvops guests, I am currently using the network install images from the Fedora website, as in download/.../Fedora/13/x86_64/os. I prefer to bring up a minimal system and add just the packages I need to get things working, so I know exactly what is installed. Is that a problem?

Also, the HVM install is from an .iso image on the local disk.


What is the formal meaning of the one-line program
#include "/dev/tty"
