On Ubuntu server 11.10 I am trying to install a virtual machine using virt-manager. I beleive that I have everything right, but when I go and run the command "virt-manager" I get the following error message:
File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.py", line 383, in <module> main() File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.py", line 285, in main raise RuntimeError(_("Unable to initialize GTK: %s") % gtk_error) RuntimeError: Unable to initialize GTK: could not open display
I want to use virt-manager so that I can quickly and efficently create multiple (6) virtual machines, but is there any other alternative that does not take hours per host system, and is still lightweight?
My machine is as follows:
- Ubuntu Server 11.10
- 8 cores @ 2.5ghz
- 64 gb ram
Thank you for all of your help!
