[virt-tools-list] Remote Install Help



Hi All,

I bet this has been asked a hundred times but I cant find the answer;

I'm trying to install remotely via SSH a guest without an X session,
only with SSH. The host is running X but its just a dev box, when
these guests go live they will be migrated to a host without X so I'm
trying to learn on the dev box who do install guests without X in the
first place.

After some man page reading and Googling I have come up with this command;
virt-install --name debian --ram 1024 --vcpus 2 --check-cpu
--nographics --cdrom /dev/sr0 --disk debdisk --nographics -x
console=ttyS0,115200 --force --prompt

But I keep getting nowhere;
Starting install...
Creating domain...                                                 0 B 00:00
Connected to domain debian_node
Escape character is ^]


The host hangs there indefinably, have I missed some stupidly newbish?

Many thanks for reading and for any help provided.

Regards,

James.
