Just installed KVM on my server without any xwindows system. Then ssh onto the server (with X11Forward on) and found virt-manager can't open display when I issue the command:
Is it something I really expect to see? Why can't I import gtk (pygtk) module? Do I really need to run xwindows system on the server?santanu pcge:~$ ssh -X root vmw01 root vmw01's password: Last login: Mon Nov 8 15:51:39 2010 from pcge [root vmw01 ~]# virt-manager Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.py", line 376, in ? _show_startup_error(str(run_e), "".join(traceback.format_exc())) File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.py", line 52, in _show_startup_error import gtk File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 76, in ? _init() File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 64, in _init _gtk.init_check() RuntimeError: could not open display
Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
