I was trying to follow the qemu 'basic example' steps, and found them to be not working (in fact the system came back with an error about a missing /tmp/kspre.cfg)

Ultimately I think there a few issues:

  1. The referenced centos6-ks.cfg (https://gist.github.com/mitchellh/7328271/raw/c91e0c4fa19c171a40b016c6c8f251f90d2ad0ba/centos6-ks.cfg) has a '&lt;&lt;' in it, which should be '<<'.
  2. I added a '<tab>' before the the ' ks=...' boot command, and a '<enter>' after it to have the build actually continue
  3. In the JSON file I modified the 'ks=' URL to use '{{ .HTTPIP}}:{{ .HTTPPort }}', I'm not sure whether this is strictly required but it looks "safer" to me.

All fixed up. Thanks!
