Debian and KVM

I thought I’d spend a bit of time getting to know KVM on Debian.  How hard could it be, I thought?  I might fill a few hours, pass the time.

How wrong could I be!

It passed about 7 minutes.

apt-get install qemu-kvm libvirt-bin virtinst virt-manager virt-viewer

I bounced the box at this point, which may or may not have been necessary, then started up virt-manager, configured the VM, pointed it to the Debian net installation ISO, and off it went.

I was almost disappointed by the simplicity.  Guess I’ll have to find something else to play with.
