Host Installation

  • A base installation (only) is suggested, with only the following extra packages required:
    • xorg-x11-libs
    • gcc
    • kernel-source
  • Try to partition your OS, swap and the location for your VM's on different drives.
  • TODO: Define absolutely minimal installation requirements.

Guest Installation

Known Issues

  • There are a lot of complaints about the free VMware's remote console being slow and unreliable. All the VMware documentation for all versions of VMware suggest the use of the native remote access tools (ssh, RDP, etc) instead of the console if possible.
