Hi,

I have run the below command to install Kali Linux using
linux-2020.4-installer-amd64.iso from https://www.kali.org/downloads/

#virt-install --name kalilinux --memory 4096 --vcpus=2
--location=/linuxkvmaddgbdisk/kali-linux-2020.4-installer-amd64.iso,kernel=install.amd/gtk/vmlinuz,initrd=install.amd/gtk/initrd.gz
--network=bridge:br0 --os-type=linux --os-variant=debian9 --graphics=none
--extra-args "console=ttyS0" -v --disk
path=/linuxkvmaddgbdisk/kalilinux.img,size=50

I am not able to get the root login prompt when I run the below command to
set IP and hostname for the guest OS. Am I missing any parameters from the
above virt-install command to install Kali Linux as Guest OS in KVM
Hypervisor?


Just a hunch, maybe --extra-args work only for installation and are not persistent? I guess installer doesn't persist kernel cmd line passed in installation phase (why would it anyway?). I guess you need to configure grub so that it appends the argument or configure /etc/initttab and uncomment line that enables getty for ttyS0 console.
