i install ipfire on a kvm maschine with gui and it works well. But i tried to install ipfire on a kvm maschine with no gui, and the problem is : i can’t access the console, because the (serial)console is per default no activated.
In other words: how is it possible to install ipfire on a kvm hypervisor without any graphic user interface (headless).
As far as I know, IPFire serial console is active by default.
I have an headless debian virtual machine installed via console in a debian kvm host, however I never tried to install an IPFire machine.
For Debian, you need to add the following switch to
then you should be able to connect to the console of the virtual machine (here named VM as an example) with the following command:
virsh console VM
