  2. If not already connected, connect to the libvirtd running on your local system
  3. Select New to create a new guest
  4. Choose appropriate defaults to create a Fedora guest (using a boot.iso, DVD, or URL for the installation source).
  5. In the a kernel boot argument text box, type: console=ttyS0, and proceed with defining and start the guest
  6. Once created, select View->Serial Consoles->Serial 0
  7. Select the Serial 0 tab that is created.
  8. Interact with the guest operating system on the Serial 0 tab
  9. Finally, deselect View->Serial Consoles->Serial 0

Expected Results

  1. The serial console Serial 0 is a selectable option from the View->Serial Consoles menu
  2. When selected, a new tab showing Serial 0 is displayed
