Linux VDI images download

Postby cmgeorge » 12. Jul 2007, 13:57

At http://download.helpdesklive.info/ you can find installed VDI images ready to run for easy tests in VirtualBox.
I don't now if it is a good idea to offer installed images, but if it is, pleas tell me what distributions would you like to find there.
Also i think is a good idea to upload Alfa & Beta releases to can be easily to test.

Pleas let us know if is a good idea to let this page up or not.
(sorry for ads... but the bandwidth and space have costs :) )

It is actually a good idea.

I think it would be great to have a Gentoo image.

Yes, it is good idea, as long as someone can handle the cost of maintaining it.

VirtualBoxImages.com Pre-Installed Open Source Operating Systems

60,000 + Virtual Images Server
(Note:10/23/2013) 120,800 VirtualBoxImages downloaded and booted !! Woot!!
(Note: 09/29/2011) 60,000 VirtualBoxImages downloaded and booted !!
(Note: 04/02/2010) 30,000 VirtualBoxImages downloaded and booted !!

At the request of an associate developer, we are making the "Open Source Operating Systems" available for download.

Each system is "Clean and Untouched" once the install boots to a functional level including GuestAdditions where necessary. Any modifications to the original installation are noted in the Build Notes.

For now we have posted the images as torrents until we find mirrors willing to host the files.

Most of the images we have functioning are from LiveCD's and we will be posting them soon.

You can follow my Twitter to get up to date information on new releases. http://twitter.com/JamesT0723

I always thought this would be a good idea!

I can let friends test drive alternative operating systems very easily this way. I was having some strangeness in getting Ubuntu to recognize VBox's video properly, yet it works fine in the ready-made VDI. Go figure?

I can't seem to be able to install virtualbox addons on the fluxbuntu one (adminuser with the username). Are they already installed or?

Fedora9 is very buggy - it uses BETA version of Xorg which conflicts with VBox.

It looks like the images have been static for a while. If someone can post (or post a link to) instructions or even vague guidelines for the construction of these images, I'd love to contribute.

I'm building a piping fresh Ubuntu 9.04 image as soon as I hit "submit". ;)
