    KVM Question

    I am running Ubuntu 12.04 and using KVM to virtualize a few servers.

    Every time I create an Ubuntu server (non-gui) client VM the subsequent window is the incorrect size.
    If I vi a file, I have to scroll up and down to get to the top and bottom of the file.

    How to fix this?

    Thanks,

    First thing:

    Once your VM is installed, you don't have to use the console anymore. Start the ssh server and log in using your favorite terminal.

    Second thing, in virt-manager you can go to the View menu and resize to VM.
    Help stamp out MBR partition tables. Use GPT instead!

    Exactly. i only use the console as a last resort. ssh is 100000x faster, maybe 100001x.

    For me, it is the lack of a good select/paste that really bothers me even more than the speed problem. With ssh in an xterm, select/paste works like GOD intended on all UNIX systems.

    After all, we all know that the only reason for any GUI is to more easily manage our terminals.
