VMware Working on 1501 [Feisty]

I finally got around to installing VMware on my Dell 1501. While I wish I could used a KVM, my Sempron 3500+ doesn't support it. It does run VMware well, here are some screens. With a guide to follow shortly.

All you need to get vmware server running is apt-get install vmware-server from the Canonical COMMERCIAL repository.

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu feisty-commercial main

for the most part, true, although the newest version release isnt in the repositories yet

Kevin said...

also of note is VirtualBox by Innotek...a newer, open-source virtual machine software

runs well, and their site has a .deb of the newest release

I've got Virtualbox installed on my 1501 with XP-MCE 2005 running as a virtual machine. With the "guest additions" installed you can run the virtal machine fullscreen, and other than seeing a slight delay you'd never know that XP was running from within Ubuntu. :D
