Thread: which virtualization should I give a try?

    Default which virtualization should I give a try?

    Hi,

    I have just installed 11.4 and using it. But using virtualization would be a new experience. What should I do for it? Should I install kvm from Yast? Or something is recommended?

    Thanks.

    imo Virtual Box is the easiest to setup and use..
    but, _your_ needs have to dictate which of many you use..

    I don't use anyone, I am new in fact, I just want to give a try so that I can see other distributions within openSUSE.

    Like I can install Windows XP or Fedora or Ubuntu or something else within openSUSE itself in the virtual environment.

    right...you can do that with any of the VMs, as mentioned if i were you
    i would begin with VBox..

    you can install it use YaST Software Management...just search on
    'virtualbox'...

    there may even be a how-to somewhere to help you set it up..

    I suggest vboxlive to test other Linux distros. It will also install VirtualBox properly the first time you run it (although you can also use it to just install VirtualBox).

    * Make sure you install vmscripts from the 12.1 repo (unlike in the examples at the beginning of the howto).

    For a straightforward, vanilla install of VirtualBox, maybe read this: http://forums.opensuse.org/content/5...umbleweed.html

    What is meant by 'vanilla' install? I am using 11.4 openSUSE KDE. Does this is having some especial meaning?

    Well, but some packages are already there like: Packages

    So is virtualbox (or any of its package(s)) is already installed? Seeing this, I must install virtualbox which is not installed....? Or from the link which swerdna has given...? But as you say, virtualbox is easiest, so I should go with it...
