Turbolinux 7.0 Installation Guidelines

Support

This guest operating system is supported on the following VMware products:

  • VMware Workstation 4.0
General Installation Notes

General Installation Notes

The easiest method of installing Turbolinux 7.0 in a virtual machine is to use the standard Turbolinux 7.0 distribution CD. The notes below describe an installation using the standard distribution CD; however, installing Turbolinux 7.0 via the boot floppy/network method is supported as well.

Before installing the operating system, be sure that you have already created and configured a new virtual machine.

Note: During the Turbolinux 7.0 installation, a standard VGA16 X server (without support for the VMware Workstation X server) is installed. To get an accelerated SVGA X server running inside the virtual machine, install the VMware Tools package immediately after installing Turbolinux 7.0, before you start the X server.

Installation Steps

Installation Steps

  1. Insert the Turbolinux 7.0 CD No. 1 in the CD-ROM drive and click the Power On button.
  2. Follow the installation steps as you would for a physical PC until you get to the selection screen described in the next step.
  3. In the Configure Monitor screen, follow the defaults to configure an X server. This is necessary even though you will install a different X server with VMware Tools after you finish installing the guest operating system.
  4. Finish installing Turbolinux 7.0 as you would on a physical PC.

At this point Turbolinux 7.0 boots and a login screen appears.

VMware Tools

VMware Tools

Be sure to install VMware Tools in your guest operating system. For details, see the manual for your VMware product. Do not start the X server in the guest operating system until you install VMware Tools.

Guest Screen Saver

Guest Screen Saver

On a Linux host with an XFree86 3.x X server, it is best not to run a screen saver in the guest operating system. Guest screen savers that demand a lot of processing power can cause the X server on the host to freeze.
