I'm trying to do a text-based install using virt-install 0.400-3 on a
ubuntu server 9.10 but it is refusing to install.  Here is the form of
the command I'm using:

$ sudo -s
# virt-install -n "DOMAIN-1" --vcpus=4 --ram=2048 --disk
path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/DOMAIN-1.img
--location=http://mirrors.us.kernel.org/ubuntu-releases/karmic/ubuntu-9.10-server-amd64.iso
--accelerate --network=bridge:br0 --nographics
--extra-args="console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200"

I've tried local, nfs, http for locations and it either says its not an
installable distribution or I get a ValueError: Invalid install
location.  But I can wget the iso with no problem using the same url.

Can anyone point me to what is wrong with my command line?


--location needs to point to an install tree, not an iso. You should be able to replace --location with --cdrom to make things work. This is described in
the virt-install man page.

HTH,

Ok, I just tried it replacing --location with --cdrom and it gives me the exact same ValueError: Invalid install location Opening URL http://....

So I nfs mounted the iso across the network and then passed the mountpoint to --cdrom and this at least creates the domain but then it just sits there at "Escape is ^]" and does not do anything else.

Is there something wrong with my console args?
