How to install OpenSolaris on VirtualBox - Part 1
By Douglas Ramiro on Abr 05, 2009
Hi folks. It's very easy to install OpenSolaris in VirtualBox. If you don't have VirtualBox installed yet, you can see how to do this in this link. The first step is download your favorite OpenSolaris distribution. In this example, I will install OpenSolaris 2008.11 that you can download here.
You can see the VirtualBox link at Applications / Accessories / VirtualBox OSE (at Ubuntu). When the program open, click on New.
Click on next.
Type the name, select OpenSolaris on OS Type and click on Next.
Select the amount of base memory in megabytes to be allocated to the virtual machine and click on Next.
The next step is to create a virtual disk. Click on new.
Click on next
Select "Dynamically expanding mode" and click Next.
Type the name and the size of the virtual hard disk and click on Next.
Click on Finish.
Select the virtual disk that you created and click on Next.
In the next post, I will show how to configure VirtualBox to boot from a local image iso from OpenSolaris.
I will appreciate your comments.
