Thanks for the reply. However I don't quite understand what you mean
by pressing F8. Here is what I do,
To create the image
$ qemu-img create -f qcow2 /path/to/img 5G
$ sudo qemu-kvm -hda /path/to/img -cdrom /path/to/iso \
-soundhw all -m 2G -boot d &
I am using the KDE live CD. So it boots to that fine. But when I try
to install, it says the size of the drive is smaller than 2 gigs and
can't go ahead. So I wanted to look at any messages from anaconda at
install time. When do I press F8? I tried doing it at the live CD
desktop just to check, but didn't seem to do anything.
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
