But When I choose parXXX-virtuXXXXX ...not full-virtXXXx...
I get below screen to fill
installtion source
Please indicate where installation media is available
for the operating system you would like to install on
this virtual machine .Optionally you can provide the
URL for kickstart file:

installation media URL:
kickstart URL:
Kernel paramters:
I plan to install the OS from Cd/DVD only ,,, so, how I can fill in above URL ??
Any suggestion ???
Please advice .
Thank

I had a similar problem.

Are you logged on locally to the box or are you exporting the virt-manager display to a remote server?

The reason I ask, is because it should work if you are logged on locally. If you are logged on remotely via ssh -X have a look for bug 512253 - Virt Manager (not allowed to post liks yet!)

There is a work-around is to use virt-install instead.

Let me know how you get on. I'm using Fully Virtualised VM's installed from an ISO local to the Host.
