Cannot get 10.10 live CD to boot as a Virtual Machine
I have KVM (Kernel-Based Virtual Machine) installed on my main system, which is currently running 9.04. I use it extensively for running various VMs (Virtual Machines): an Ubuntu database and web-server, some Windows-XP VMs, and for trying out new releases and new packages.
I recently downloaded both the 32 bit and 64 bit Desktop versions of Ubuntu 10.10, Neither of the live CDs will boot completely as a VM.
The CDs are both fine. I can boot a real physical PC with either disc.
Unfortunately, when I try to boot a VM using either version, they hang partway through the boot process (after the splash screen has been displayed, and them hidden again). It doesn't matter how long I wait; nothing happens. After a few minutes the optical disc drive goes idle, and there are no CPU cycles being used by the VM.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
