Running the Seadot Virtual Machine
Aus Seadot Wiki
The Seadot Virtual Machine lets you run Seadot on your PC with Oracle VirtualBox.
- Get the latest Seadot Virtual Machine Appliance (14.5 KB).
- Open VirtualBox, select File -> Import Appliance, and import the Seadot appliance you just downloaded. This will give you an empty virtual machine where you can boot Seadot ISO images.
- Get a Seadot ISO image. The easiest would be to build it yourself.
- In the new virtual machine, open the configuration and load the ISO file into the virtual CD drive.
- Boot the virtual machine. You need a working internet connection at this time because the virtual machine needs to load the Mesa LLVM Pipe driver before starting the UI.
- The VM comes empty. You need a Seadot ISO image to boot.
- Seadot ISO images from before March 2nd 2013 will not be able to start the UI.
- Due to technical issues, the resolution of the VM is not 1366x768 but 1368x768. This resolution is however only usable if your Seadot ISO has org.seadot.sdk-tools-0.201303031144 or higher.
- Tell VirtualBox to send the shutdown signal (press the close button of the VM window first) to emulate pressing the power button.
- If your screen is too small for the resolution, you can switch to scaled mode by pressing the VirtualBox host key (whatever key you configured) + C.
- It may be difficult to perform swipe from the side actions. Press the VirtualBox host key + I to disable mouse integration to confine the mouse to the VM. This makes it a lot easier to swipe in from the sides. Press the host key again to release the mouse.
- You can ssh into the VM by connecting to port 2200 on your localhost.
