Thanks for your great help!
I installed successfully all dependency RPM by yum. But it report error
I'm installing Ovirt.
1) It fails for me by running create-wui-appliance.sh to create virtual
#bash create-wui-appliance.sh -t
-k http://ovirt.org/download/wui-rel-x86_64.ks -v

Who knows why it is?
Then I try to run below command and pass for me.
#bash create-wui-appliance.sh -d "`pwd`" -v
Also, I can start 'developer' successfully.
2) I tried to invoke the main Virt page, but it fails for me.
#ssh -Y root at 192.168.50.2 firefox (or ssh -fY root at 192.168.50.2 firefox
ssh: connect to host 192.168.50.2 port 22: No route to host
What's the ip refer to? Is it refer to the ip address of my own machine?
It still fails for me by trying conncect to myself.
Here is the dummybridge output for my own machine.

Does this fail because of putty? The set up machine isn't on my hand, I
connect to it
by putty. Do I have to install it on my local machine?
Here is the info of Dependency RPM version on my machine:
