[virt-tools-list] virt-manager can't open display



Hi there,

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:

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

  
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?
Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

Cheers,
Santanu
