Thread: Basics for setting up VM machine

    Default Basics for setting up VM machine

    I want to run Windows XP as virtual machine for security reasons. I have Suse Linux -11.1-. I'm all new to this.

    How do I do the basic setup? Can it done with windows7? How much slower is it?

    Virtual Box. XP and W7 both work fine.
    Get .rpm from here: VirtualBox

    Install with
    rpm -ihv *package_name
    from su terminal

    You need to add yourself to VBox users with
    groupmod --add-user <login_name> vboxusers
    USB may just work with newer versions now, but check this if it doesn't

    Some good info here, though it's actually for the OSE version
    VirtualBox Installation - openSUSE

    After kernel Update run
    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    you need the usual build packages: gcc, make, kernel-source and header packages
