Well, that's weird! I think I'd suggest filing a bug against the Ubuntu package. It's not something I've heard of happening before, so it's possible that it's specific to your situation, or to the particular version of the tool you're using.

Daniel: hope you don't mind me cc-ing, I wondered if you might have a hint for us?

That is bizarre - I've never seen such a error from virt-install. I'd
suggest running with --debug so it'll show you how far through it is
progressing. Then file a bug report with the output fro mthe debug mode.

hmm, nice trick :)

root@venus:~# virt-install -v --ram=512 --file-size=10 --name=vps02 --file=/home/vps02.img --debug Fri, 02 May 2008 17:58:11 DEBUG Disk path not found: Assuming file disk type.

root@venus:~# ls /home/
lordmerlin  vps01.img

So, why doesn't the image get created automatically?

And where do I submit a bug report?
