I think it's strange that you need to install the qemu packge to get
that going. It _could_ be that this really made it work, but
_normally_ you should get the GUI running without having a normal qemu
package installed - all the qemu stuff you need for the Xen HVM
functions is included in Xen itself, and I doubt that really other
qemu libs are used, even when installed. Still, it _could_ be.

Maybe you just missed the SDL libs, they are probably not documented
as dependencies in the README, and now they are pulled in by the qemu

now i just need to
figure out how to access it because i am on ubuntu server with no gui,
and i am trying to boot off an install disk, would doing the walkthrough
to enable console in HVM work on ubuntu server?

You can export the GUI via VNC from the dom0 server, or/and install
any remote GUI software on the machine.
You start the VM with vnc=1 and then you should be able to use
vncviewer to connect to the GUI.

BTW: sure Daniel is right, I should have written "most people don't
want to run a console with hvm, but access the GUI with SDL(only when
the host has a GUI) or vnc. Using a console in hvm domains is a bit
config tinkering".
