I've installed CentOS 6.4 from the 'minimal' iso, so it doesn't come with a GUI. Will this question's answer allow me to install KVM, or do I need to install KDE or X-server or something first?
Yes you can install all these package groups, even without having a GUI.
- Virtualization Client
- Virtualization Platform
- Virtualization Tools
Remember that you can
ssh into the KVM host and remote display any GUIs such as
virt-manager if needed.
Also with the
libvirtd service running you can run
virt-manager from other hosts and remotely connect to the headless KVM host and manage it too.
Just do the following to install them:
$ sudo yum groupinstall 'Virtualization*'
Also you can get a list of all the package groups with this command, specifically the 'Virtualization' ones:
$ yum grouplist | grep 'Virt' Virtualization Virtualization Client Virtualization Platform Virtualization Tools
