I am trying to install CentOS 5.4 as a KVM guest.
The host is running CentOS 5.4 and does not have
I used ssh to connect to the host and ran this command
(I formatted it for readability, it is all on one line):
virt-install -n jamm12e -r 1024 --vcpus=1 --check-cpu
--os-type=linux --os-variant=rhel5 --hvm --accelerate
-f /usr/local/virt/jamm12e.img -s 20 -b br0
When I do that, I get this error:
(virt-viewer:3083): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
Domain installation still in progress. You can reconnect to
the console to complete the installation process.
I did not expect the installation to try connect to
the display since I told it to use VNC.
Next, I tried to connect TightVNC viewer from my
Windows XP laptop. I entered 192.168.2.200:3
as the server and tried to connect, but that failed.
Did I miss something in the VNC configuration?
I don't see any other parameters to use.
