LiveCD? Install in Virtual Box?

Post by windyweather » Fri May 31, 2013 2:25 am

Saw an announcement of ROS 0.3.15 on SlashDot. Love to try it, but I'd need to try it in a Virtual Box virtual machine, like I try all the interesting Linux Distros that I find might be interesting.
I found the Live CD so I'll try it in VirtualBox and see if it works.
Is it intended to work in a VB VM? We'll see.

Shucks.. I see that you packaged a preloaded VM. So I guess we are on the same page. :lol:

Thanks,
ww

Gave it a try - some crashes

I gave it a try and it crashed, and it worked. I upped the memory and video memory and it was more reliable, but still crashes on boot about 1/2 the time. Oddly, after a crash when you boot it, if you RESET the VM, then it will boot correctly.

I've included some screen shots and logs and other info that might be useful tracking the problems.

I look forward to trying it as new releases come out and figuring out ways to use it.

i am using vmware and had no problems with it. Try to use the installation CD. The instalation is very very fast (not objective but it installs in 2-3 mins :))

try this one (nightly build)

I use VBox, and have no trouble with it. :)
