    Talking SPICE IT UP! [awesome system.]

    Well, here it is: One of the most difficult questions in life. Are you ready?

    Which software should I use for full virtualization? VmWare? Xen? Tell me what you think!
    Why am I asking this? Because I have another thread with a "hard" problem right over here: Xen Virtualization brakes up [OpenSuse 11.1]. WTF? - openSUSE Forums, where nobody can help me.

    I've been waiting for a professional answer over 18 hours by now - all that came was a fake link from one of the mods here. Great support I guess.


    Help me out. Thanks!

    I found virtualbox to be the easiest to use, performs fine to.

    VirtualBox - openSUSE
    Had it set up to run Windows XP * 2.. to test sites in internet explorer 6 and 7.
    That was on 11.0 though, assume it's still good in 11.1

    You might want to slow down a bit on the posting btw, most things here take about a day to get an answer on.

    [Edit]:
    I suspect it would be a wise thing to completely uninstall whatever xen set up first to avoid conflicts.

    I would use the sun virtual machine "sun xVM VirtualBox"

    Thanks for your answers. At least some progress in here.

    As far as I read, Xen enhances Windows and its reputation tells me, that it is the program I want to use for full virtualization.

    But...oh man... I'm not able to handle this "error". It's just a wrong configuration - nothing more.

    that's the only thing I'll need to fix.

    *sigh*

    You haven't paid a single penny for opensuse have you? Then how can you expect immediate answers for your questions?

    This is a community forum and all members are volunteers. Have patience.

    Full virtualization? I would use VMware ESX. Just because I don't
    have to consider VT/VMX support with it.

    Long term, with new hardware and with paravirtualization, I would
    consider kvm over Xen. Not really sure what Xen offers... I'm
    thinking that Xen has a short life ahead of it.

    So... create a DEDICATED VM platform... I would run VMware
    ESX on it (choose a supported platform).

    Next year (maybe), I would consider a dedicated platform running
    kvm instead.

    I have no idea why I would choose Xen... even today.
    (Xen fanboys feel free to educate)

    Yeah, of course I do expect immediate answers. That's what other users can expect from me too, if I am online.

    Thanks for helping.

    Hi
    First off FYI, I'm not a mod, I'm a volunteer. It wasn't a fake
    link, it was a genuine google enquiry for your error.

    This forum is just other users helping other users. If your needing
    professional help, then might I suggest you look at using an enterprise
    version (SLES) where you can pay for your support problems.

    You may want to inquire over in the novell SLES forums
    (http://forums.novell.com) as there may be more Xen orientated users
    that may be able to help you.

    I use VMware workstatation as none of the machine I have cpu's that
    support VT

    Virtual Box and VMware server are good as well.


    Good Luck
