I am using kvm on a CentOS 5.4 server.

I am trying to install the TunkeyLinux Core appliance 
found here: http://www.turnkeylinux.org/core

I downloaded the ISO file from the web site.

Then, I used this command to intall it:
virt-install -n tkl-core -r 512 --vcpus=1 --check-cpu --os-type=linux 
--os-variant=ubuntuhardy -v --accelerate 
-c /tmp/turnkey-core-2009.10-hardy-x86.iso 
-f /var/lib/libvirt/images/tkl-core.img -s 15 -b br0 --vnc noautoconsole

When I connect to the VNC console, I get the Turnkey linux 
options screen.
I select Install to hard disk from there and it seems to 
start the install but crashes during the installer startup.

This is repeatable so there has to be a way to debug it.

I tried turning on the debug option for virt-install but that
did not give me any useful info.

Any ideas how to debug this?
