I've spent a lot of time googling what I'm doing wrong, but the only replies
I've found was "... the vnc access is better, use it..." or that I should
redirect the installation console to serial device - I think I'm doing it with
the "-x console=/dev/ttyS0", so what's wrong?
As far as I know that should work. Is the VM crashing maybe? What
happens above after the domain creation, does the console just sit there
after 'Escape character is ^]' or does it exit immediately? If it exits,
something went wrong.
Yes, the console does only sit there and does nothing else. The only
output from this was one character "?" written with black font with white
background (sorry, my english is poor) - it is some special char and this
"output" was after about 3 seconds. I was waiting for some other output
for some minutes, but nothing else happened. The
VM is not crashing IMHO, because I'm trying simultaneously connect using
virt-manager (in X window) and it shows, that virtual machine spends some
CPU time and memory. I can normally destroy it. And yes - this way I don't
see anything, because of the "--nographics", so I'm not absolutely sure,
what is going on in the virtual guest.
When you say you are unable to connect using virsh console, do you mean
it doesn't print anything or the command fails? If it fails, please post
The only output is in my original post, nothing else.
Strange is, that this behaviour is simillar to the debian installation
over the internet. According to the debian's doc the debian should know
"console=/dev/ttyS0" just like fedora, but the result is the same.
I spent on this 2 days searching the internet and testing (hope) everthing
as far as I had invention...
