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
