10.10/serverguide/C/libvirt.html - package python-virtinst should be virtinst

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

Documentation seems outdated.


sudo apt-get install python-virtinst

Should be:

sudo apt-get install virtinst

Seems to apply to previous releases of Ubuntu also, not just 10.10.

Also people on #ubuntu-server reported virt-install hangs before creating the virtual disk on ubuntu server (but works on normal ubuntu strangely),

People on #ubuntu-server recommended using vmbuilder or virt-manager instead.

So perhaps the documentation needs to be tested/updated.
