May I strongly recommend yesterday's XKCD<http://xkcd.com/963/>? Talk about timely.... <snip> =========== I am down to just a call to supermicro, which will probably be a waste. After that I think buying a cheap 'more compatible' vga card for the box might solve the problems. My last way out is to bite the bullet and install xorg/gnome/etc and hope it does not crash the guests. Obviously centos 6 is pretty new, KVM is fairly new in a way (everyone does zen), its linux (<argh>), and KVM googles don't work so well with KVM switches out there..lol Not sure of the path here, I know continually reinstalling, repackaging, playing with grub, etc...cannot be the way intended for a brand new install just to install a guest via command line. I am thinking new video card. First time sorely disappointed with supermicro...very disappointed unless they have a fix.
