[virt-tools-list] Lilo bootloader succeeds with kvm but not virt-manager



Hello,

I installed Linux Suse as a guest in virt-manager/KVM and had trouble to install grub. So I used good old Lilo instead. When running Suse in virt-manager Lilo fails with

  LILO - Keytable read/checksum error on bootup

When I go

  kvm -m 512 -hda SLES-10.3.img

I get to the Lilo boot menu, I can select linux and it starts up fine. Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this? I don't understand what difference there is between the two ways to start my machine. Is there any way to see how virt-manager invokes kvm?

All the best,
Daniel Janzon

PS. I find nothing strange in the XML file,
