3. And load it with VMware Player: Open a Virtual Machine
I selected Linux Xubuntu 9.04 for example
3. Upsss... - my procesor is too old to run a virtual machine.
VMware Player's developer's "Getting Started Guide EN" page 11 says that the minimum for host machine
is procesor 1.3GHz and RAM memory 1Gb available on: http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/player_pubs.html
so my laptop exactly has but doesn't want to work.
Anyway I'll continiue this chapter working on second laptop with procesor Intel Celeron Dual Core 1.8GHz,
RAM memory 3Gb and the same operating system - sidux 2009-04.
4. During the first run the player asks for downloading and installing "WMware Tools for Linux" package->
so click on "Download" - it supports a few extra functions: mouse integration, drag and drop, etc.
5. When a guest system starts, install "VMware Tools" package for it too:
a. Go to "VM" tab-> Install VMware Tools - it will download and mount the package for the guest system.
b. Open Terminal and make as root:
tar xfvz package_name.tar.bz
c. Confirm patches for all components and restart VMware Player.
5. In a case of any problem you can reconfigure it:
6. System Xubuntu 9.04 has been started with all additional functions of VMware Tools.
