I'm unable to install ubuntu 10.10amd64 (or i386) onto a ubuntu amd64 server running KVM. However I'm able to install Ubuntu server fine into the same KVM.
I'm not sure if it makes a difference but I'm trying to manage the install using virt-manager so it connects to the host server using ssh tunneling.
The cd seems to boot up ok but it hangs once I click Install Ubuntu and the mouse cursor only sometimes responds. When trying to install i386 I eventually get the following error:
The Installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again.
Once I press ok I get a LiveCD environment it's not really usable and the gnome-panel keeps disappearing. It looks like the window decorations are missing (maybe it's a graphics problem?). Then the panel completely disappeared.
