Hi i have ubuntu 12.04 host capable of running kvm , with no vagrant and virtual box installed. I have installed the veewee using gem install veewee.
Below is what i get when i try to build a kvm machine. Does any one have some idea where to look at, or face this problem before

veewee kvm build 'centos5.6-i386'
Building Box centos5.6-i386 with Definition centos5.6-i386:

  • force : false
  • auto : false
  • use_emulation : false
  • postinstall_include :
  • debug : false
  • postinstall_exclude :
  • nogui : false

The isofile CentOS-5.6-i386-netinstall.iso already exists.

@sudhirpandey I suspect the fog api has changed and veewee needs to be adapted for it

Could you please check if the recent pull request #465 and #472 fixed your problem?

@sudhirpandey any updates/confirmation? Otherwise we close this ticket as resolved

Thanks a lot the latest 0.3.7 works great as expected for provisioning linux machines.
