I'm running Fedora 16 and would like to install a KVM VM.
On my preious Ubuntu system I used to install such a VM with:
$ sudo virt-install [...] --vnc [...]
(I'm a sudo fan, not guru)
On my F16, running the same command gives me:
ERROR Unable to read from monitor: Connection reset by peer
Domain installation does not appear to have been successful.
This, IMHO, is due to the --vnc option trying to open a X11 window.
I don't think so - this error message means that QEMU failed to
startup. virt-install won't even have go as far as running
virt-viewer, so VNC/X11 won't come into it there. Check the
/var/log/libvirt/qemu/$GUEST.log file for more info about
what happened to QEMU.
