[fedora-virt] Error using Virtual Machine Manager to create new Windows XP VM



Dear All,

I was previously successful in using KVM/Qemu to create and run a Windows
XP virtual machine hosted on Fedora 10.

I have now upgraded to Fedora 11 x86_64 (using Live distribution), but I
get an error whilst using the Virtual Machine Manager to create a Windows
XP virtual machine.

The virtual machine is configured to install from a local CD (containing
the Windows XP Pro install CD), OS type is "Windows", Version is "Microsoft
Windows XP (x86)", memory is 1536MB, CPU set to 1, disk is 50GB (allocate
entire disk now).

My host PC is a Lenovo T60p (Intel Core 2 Duo with 4GB physical memory),
and I have enable Intel Virtualization in the BIOS.

The message displayed in the Error dialog is:
"Unable to complete install: 'internal error unable to start guest: char
device redirected to /dev/pts/0
char device redirected to /dev/pts/1"

The details are:
"Unable to complete install '<class 'libvirt.libvirtError'> internal error
unable to start guest: char device redirected to /dev/pts/0
char device redirected to /dev/pts/1

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 1501, in
do_install
    dom = guest.start_install(False, meter = meter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 541, in
start_install
    return self._do_install(consolecb, meter, removeOld, wait)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 633, in
_do_install
    self.domain = self.conn.createLinux(install_xml, 0).
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 974, in
createLinux
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed',
conn=self)
libvirtError: internal error unable to start guest: char device redirected
to /dev/pts/0
char device redirected to /dev/pts/1"

Can anyone offer any suggestions about what I might be doing wrong?

Kind Regards,
Colin Coates
