Slackware 11.0 RC1 Virtual Machine


Greetings ...

I have released a new VMware virtual machine for Slackware based on 11.0 Release Candidate 1. It is available for download at slackware.centaurivm.org.

Enjoy.

Would you also post a tutorial on setting up VMWare in Slackware?

The time I tried it could not find my kernel source...

Well, maybe you didn't had the kernel-source package install, or the /usr/src/linux symlink wasn't pointing to the right kernel-source ( the one matching your running kernel ), make sure you have all this in place and it should work straight away. As for the how-to... a very simple and not too much time consuming
Code:
vmware on slackware
in Google would point this http://www.cs.ucr.edu/~jbyrne/vmware.htm as the first link, which got me, and several people to get VMware working. Good luck.

Real life has intruded somewhat, but I will be working on this "real soon now". Look for a new VM of Slackware 11 Final within a week or so.
