SCLive Inside VMWare

This document details the steps required in order to run the SCLive distribution inside a VMWare virtual machine.

The VMWare player is a free application from the VMWAre people that allows you to run Operating Systems from within a host OS. For the purpose of SCLive we will cover how to run the distribution from within Windows XP.

  1. Get a copy of VMWare player from here .
  2. Install the player
  3. Create a directory in which you will put a copy of the SCLive ISO file.
  4. Inside the same directory create a file that you may want to call something like: SCLive.vmx
  5. Copy the code bellow inside the file SCLive.vmx .
  6. Change the name of the ISO file (sclive-1.0.iso) to match the name of the version of the SCLive ISO file you have copied inside the current directory (Step 3).
  7. Save and exit.

## cut start ##
config.version = "8"
virtualHW.version = "4"
scsi0.present = "FALSE"
memsize = "256"
ide1:0.present = "TRUE"
ide1:0.fileName = "sclive-1.0.iso"
ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-image"
floppy0.present = "FALSE"
ethernet0.present = "TRUE"
usb.present = "TRUE"
sound.present = "TRUE"
sound.virtualDev = "es1371"
displayName = "SCLive"
guestOS = "other26xlinux"
nvram = "other26xlinux.nvram"
ethernet0.addressType = "generated"

ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:b6:13:a0"
uuid.location = "56 4d 4f 8c 6d 38 d0 48-61 e9 a4 65 7f b6 13 a0"
uuid.bios = "56 4d 4f 8c 6d 38 d0 48-61 e9 a4 65 7f b6 13 a0"
tools.remindInstall = "TRUE"
ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0"

usb.autoConnect.device0 = ""
checkpoint.vmState = "sclive.vmss"

usb.autoConnect.device1 = ""

ethernet0.connectionType = "bridged"

## cut end ##

Now that is left for you to do is to double-click on the SCLive.vmx file you have just created to start the VMWare player.
