Hello all: I am trying to install CentOS 5.4 as a KVM guest. The host is running CentOS 5.4 and does not have X installed. 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 --cdrom=/tmp/CentOS-5.4-x86_64-netinstall.iso -f /usr/local/virt/jamm12e.img -s 20 -b br0 --vnc --vncport=5903 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.
