Consumer based alternative for RedHat EL (free, and geared toward home usage):
That's a nice howto. I personally use this method: RHEL local DVD Repo
(from my blog here at LQ).
Running either of these two would suffice:
# yum install kvm virt-viewer virt-manager libvirt libvirt-python python-virtinst
- or -
# yum groupinstall KVM
See the above comments and do let us know if it worked!
First of all i want to thank you for helping me a lot.
To tell you the truth i do not know why Red Hat is installed but i have to run a virtual machine on this operative system.
Finally i did a fresh install, and now virt-install works perfectly. Also i want to congratulate you because the guide "RHEL local DVD Repo" is very easy to understand.
Now i am trying to use/configure and install a virtual machine (an Ubuntu Server). I am reading some guides in the web. I hope it goes well.
Thanks a lot again!
