thanks alot for helping me atreyu
i'm friendly with putty ;)
i have done what you told me connect to my server with putty enabling X11 forwarding.
doing echo $DISPLAY it print me a blank line.
then doing virt-install again it happens the same thing as before when it enters "Installation Method" i can't do nothing.
i have Xming in my system tray but it seems it does nothing. if i right click on it and enable root window it appears a full window white and black pixeled and nothing more
Something else i forgot about - on the CentOS machine, check for X11Forwarding in this file:
It should be set to yes
, but might default to no
. If you do have to change it, restart the SSH daemon when you're done:
service sshd restart
If it is already enabled, it must be something else...
EDIT: You might also need to make sure that the package xorg-x11-xauth is installed on your CentOS server.
EDIT2: On your CentOS server, keep a tail running of your messages and secure logs, to give you any additional clues, e.g.:
tail -f /var/log/messages
tail -f /var/log/secure
