Install and Configure KVM on LinuxMint 18.1

install and configure KVM on LinuxMint 18.1 it’s little bit tricky. you can follow tutorial in this link after installation process finished, you may experiece error regarding display console: can not open spice console, as mentioned and explained here. No problem, it’s solved yet.

after some trial error, I found this package to be installed to solve those problem:

  • spice-client-gtk
  • gir1.2-spice-client-gtk-3.0
  • gir1.2-spice-client-glib-2.0
  • python-spice-client-gtk

now you can see it’s works.

troubleshoot

satu masalah muncul setelah guest OS berhasil diinstall, misalya dalam kasus saya, guest OS tidak bisa ping ke host, begitu juga sebaliknya. network sudah diseting menggunakan network brigde, tetapi tetap saja tidak bisa diakses/ping. namun demikian, koneksi ke internet tetap bisa. masalah ini sudah diselesaikan di artikel ini. ikut saja petunjuk disana, dan hasilnya guest OS bisa akses/ping ke host, dan juga sebaliknya.
