Im not understanding KVM


Hello,

Im trying to use KDM on Gentoo.

It seems to be working but I really dont understand what its doing because there is no window showing me the virtual system.

This is what I have

Code:
linux emulation # kvm -hda opensuse.img -cdrom /dev/cdrom -boot d
VNC server running on `127.0.0.1:5900'
I really dont know what to do from here. How do I get into the virtual system?

?

I got it working.

It seems that the module was not loading.

Im still having trouble loading the kvm_amd module but got it working by starting it with the kernel and not as a module.
