troubles with virt-manager (KVM cli works just fine)
Greetings Ubuntu users!
I am using Ubuntu Server 10.04 on a Dell Poweredge server.
I currently have a virtual machine running (revision control server for coding) under QEMU/KVM with no issues whatsoever.
I invoked this server using the following command:
kvm -hda [imagefile.qcow2] -vnc
no problems there, installs, accessible via bridge networking from the rest of my network.
Attempting to add an XML file definition to Virsh works, it shows up inside virt-manager and runs.
Here's my issue:
When the VM starts it sits on Grub Loading, Please Wait.....
I have tried chown on the image, running entirely as root [sudo -s] before invoking virt-manager, as well as copying the image to another file, Destroying the definition in virsh and recreating it, editing the xml file and changing storage operators (boot=on/off, ide/scsi) and giving it access to more RAM as well.
EDIT: I have created a 'New VM' from within virt-manager, installed OS from an ISO, but upon rebooting and setting boot to the image that virt-manager created, the result is the same (hangs and grub loading)
I can run the exact command that virt-manager / virsh runs when starting, and it will work... but only if i remove the 'net tap' options!!! so no networking!
Thank you for providing any insight to this issue,

Re: troubles with virt-manager (KVM cli works just fine)
I've been unable to boot one of my VMs for almost a year due to this. I can also start it on the commandline (thanks for that tip!) But no networking when I use that command (without the -vnc, which gives me an error). Anyway, was wondering if you ever found a solution to this. My problems started when I upgraded the host OS to Lucid.
