VPC Images

Here's the latest version of Haiku checked out of the SVN fresh and compiled for your enjoyment. You'll need Virtual PC, in order to mount this drive.

Click here to download (20MB).

At this stage, I will be updating these images weekly. Also, on the weekend, I managed to put together a new P4 2.6Ghz machine for the Build Factory. Just having driver issues with a NIC, that I hope to sort out this week.

Awesome ... got the NIC sorted out last night, just have to find the time tonight to config the box up with SVN, etc and it'll be good to go.

Can you please provide an image that can be loaded in the free VMWARE player
http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

Since this is a VPC image, please provide a VMC config file with at least 256MB RAM for most users.

Once VMWARE player has imported and converted it to a VMX file, you can edit that text file to increase RAM in the virtual machine.

Saves people from getting the trial software for either VPC or VMWARE.

Excellent ... I didn't know about that VMware Player, downloading it right now and then I'll check it out.

As my main windows machine was fried in a storm recently, I won't be able to bring the VPC images to your weekly - just yet.

I'll setup a workflow on a machine at work to create a VPC image from the haiku image and then I'll do a new post on here.

Are these images updated?
I got a lot of problems with VMware-Server, for example the mouse is really slow and it's not usable while in VPC (which now is free as in free beer) I didn't have problems.

Is there a way to convert raw or vmdk files to VPC?
