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.
