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?
I'm not sure why you need to set the IP address. Are you running a network with static IPs, without DHCP? As I cannot see where br0 is connected I can't guess more than that. You can use Michal's approach if you use the default libvirt network, though.
#virsh console kalilinux Connected to domain kalilinux Escape character is ^]
You might be connected at this point. It's just that the guest sent the "login: " prompt before you connected. Try pressing enter at this point to see whether there's something listening on the serial console. If it's not, then I wonder where it would listen, given the --graphics=none. There are ways to modify the guest image. Easiest thing might be to use virt-customize. But I truly believe you have a working system and all you need to do is write the username and press enter. In the end it will look like this: I'm trying to reproduce the install right now with comparable command-line, but it's getting stuck on something unrelated. If I manage to get it to work I will let you know what I found.
Any help will be highly appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks in Advance. Best Regards, Kaushal
