VM Creation

I've problems communicatig with the VM

To setup the ssh connection to the VM, make sure that the SSH server is running on the VM on port 22. To test the connection from hostsystem, launch the VM with pb (pb -p projectname -m vmname launchvm) and afterwards type ssh -p vmport localhost. No additional setup of networking within Qemu is needed, because the default network is used and configured automatically (Contributed by Joachim Langenbach)

I'm blocked trying to create a Ubuntu 8.10 VM with pb/QEMU.

Try looking at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub-installer/+bug/252901/

I'm blocked trying to create a OpenSuSE 11.2 VM with pb/QEMU.

Try looking at https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=557158

How to create a Solaris VM ?

Look at OpenSolaris VM creation

I'm unable to log with ssh to the root account on Fedora 12

Please ensure that sshd is running in your VM by default and that it allows remote root login:

# grep PermitRootLogin /etc/ssh/sshd_config
PermitRootLogin yes

Also before pb 0.9.9, check no SElinux is preventing you to access authorized keys. try

# chcon -Rt home_ssh_t ~/.ssh
