By Douglas Ramiro on Abr 05, 2009
Hello. If you need to test any operate system like OpenSolaris, Linux, FreeBsd and others, you can try to install it on a virtual machine. VirtualBox is a general-purpose full virtualizer for x86 hardware. Targeted at server, desktop and embedded use, it is now the only professional-quality virtualization solution that is also Open Source Software.
It is very easy to install VirtualBox in Ubuntu.
Open the Terminal and type
wget -c http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/2.2.0/virtualbox-2.2_2.2.0-45846_Ubuntu_intrepid_i386.deb
dpkg -i \*.deb
That's it! In another tutorial, I will show how to install OpenSolaris in VirtualBox.
To open VirtualBox press alt+f2 and type VirtualBox
