Reply to virt-tool-list, et-mgmt-tools is being discontinued.

What is the output of 'virsh capabilities | grep kvm' . If nothing shows up,
libvirt isn't detecting KVM, so virt-install won't use it. What version of
libvirt are you using?

If the above does output something, please attach the output of the
virt-install command with the --debug flag.
