I've just got it running on Ubuntu, have installed everything but the kitchen sink.
Got virt-console, virt-manager, running debian Squeeze, everything works.
But... I don't want to connect via vnc. I want to install loads of KVM's onto a headless server. And I don't want to deal with firewalling vnc.
But I can't figure out the correct way to enable serial tty access, I would ideally like for every guest machine there would be a corresponding tty on the host.
I can't figure out what I should connect getty to in the guest. Running lshw doesn't reveal any serial devices. Grub 2 doesn't make it particularly easy to figure out where to add the kernel console setting to the initrd
The guest machine has the following pty config.
<serial type='pty'> <target port='0'/> </serial>
