[libvirt] Unable to get libvirt working with KVM using direct kernel boot.



Hi,

I am trying to get libvirt to manage a KVM virtual machine on Debian squeeze with multiple relevant parts included form unstable (because of need for gpt partition tables, Intel 82576 nic etc).

Unfortunately the VM does not seem to boot. I will see a quemu prompt on /dev/pts/1. (Tried pressing c on it, but no difference). Nothing will appear on /dev/pts/2, /dev/pts/3 or when I type
virsh console vm1_storage.

If I grab the kvm command line generated by libvirt using ps and run it manually, it works fine. (Starts booting after I press c on /dev/pts/1 or remove the -S option from the command line)


Libvirt configuration file:

<domain type='kvm'>

KVM command line that I see in ps after running
virsh define /etc/libvirt/qemu/vm1_storage.xml
virsh start vm1_storage

(Works fine after I remove the -S option or press 'c' on quemu monitor on /dev/pts/1):

Thanks for any ideas.
