Differences between using KVM and virt-install?
 
Hi,
I was trying for ages to build a KVM virtual machine using virt-install
and it always failed, tried KVM command directly following Gentoo
instruction and got it to work first time. Is there any difference in
the end result between these two methods?


Thanks,
James

What commands failed? What commands worked?

They both produce virtual machines, when they work. So the answer
to your question is sort-of "no", since they're equivalent at that
level of description.
