Unknown graphic type for the guest (virt-viewer)

I'm using Slackware v13.37 64 bit. I'm testing KVM on the machine and I've installed a Slackware guest on it. I can also connect and view the guest machine using virt-manager.

virt-viewer slackware
on the host, I'm getting:

Unknown graphic type for the guest slackware
However, I can connect using vncviewer by specifying localhost:5900.

This is my virt-install command:

virt-install --connect qemu:///system \
  --os-type linux \
  --hvm \
  --name slackware \
  --ram 512 \
  --disk path=/dev/vg01/slackware \
  --graphics vnc \
  --network bridge=virbr0,model=e1000,mac=DE:AD:BE:EF:13:4D \
  --cdrom /iso/slackware64-13.37.iso \
Is there something I need to install? Where do I check for the related log?


kvm, slackware 13.37, vnc
