Just curious as to what hardware you're running it on. And
when you say you've installed the necessary rpms, does this
mean you installed KVM by hand after the install, or through
the installer when you first installed it?

Subject: [CentOS-virt] KVM: 'ÿ' character after starting a
VM via virt-install
I'm unable to start a virtual machine with KVM.
I'm using Centos 5.4
I have installed all necessary rpms (to my knowledge), but
as you can see from the output (below), the system does not
boot the CD-ROM. It just sits there doing nothing:
# virt-install --prompt
Would you like to use KVM acceleration? (yes or no) yes
What is the name of your virtual machine? test
How much RAM should be allocated (in megabytes)? 1024
What would you like to use as the disk (file path)?
How large would you like the disk
(/var/lib/libvirt/images/test.img) to be (in gigabytes)? 20
What is the install CD-ROM/ISO or URL?

Escape character is ^]
the 'ÿ' character appears after a few seconds, then
Any help is appreciated!
