Re: [atomic-devel] Trying to automate installing ProjectAtomic

The other headless option (and the one I use) is to set --noautoconsole in the virt-install command line.  That will still set up a console device but not try launch.

I also had to specify the iso is a CD.

The machine shows up in virsh list, but if you connect with the console it just says ???Escape Character ^]??? and just sits there.

I think the key here may be "headless". The script at [1] works for me (I use it all the
time) and uses *--graphics none* on the virt-install command line. Be sure to read through
the script before using it. You'll also need to create a seed iso for cloud-init user-data.
