It didn't abort during initialization ... it aborted when I clicked on the VNC (I'm assuming) window. In the log file, the error first occurs with the call to hald (which wasn't installed on this system).
Once I installed hal, this problem cleared up (I guess that's one to put in the troubleshooting guide huh?). The screen grabs work perfectly:)
Now I just need to finish my networking on the host side and I'll be all set (any hints?).
BTW: My target is RHEL5, but I'm using a lot of software that doesn't have RPMs yet, so I'm working this all out on Gentoo. As I mentioned before, I'm also going to write up a comprehensive how-to.
I'm using the system to test installation scripts. One of the things that would be very handy is the ability to copy a guest (image file, configuration, etc.). It could use the same wizard that's used to create a new guest, with everything already filled in (except a couple obvious fields).
Once I have some of this running, I'll dig into the Python code for virt-manager a bit ... I should be able to add a few enhancements myself.
Thanks again, smoyer
