Safari & Internet Explorer
Download- and installation scripts are included in BrowserBox – not the actual browsers.
- Cannot be installed when running a Live CD.
- Don’t run installers for more than one of these at the same time. If something fails, you can reinstall through System → More programs.
- If Adobe has updated Flash since the latest release of winetricks, Flash installation is likely to fail. If you need it, upgrade the Wine packages and try again.
Internet Explorer 7
- Toolbar layout is sometimes broken.
- If 3D Acceleration is disabled in the Virtual Machine, IE7 sometimes crashes.
- The “new tab” page crashes Safari. Open links in new tabs instead or stick to one tab.
- 3D Acceleration needs to be enabled in the Virtual Machine for Safari 5 to start.
USB & disk image
This is an image of your disk, ready to be written to either a USB drive or your hard disk. When written, it will erase all data on a disk. During the first boot, your partition will be automatically resized to fill available space.
Burn this ISO file to a DVD (or CD, if the space allows), and you'll be able to boot directly from the disc.
A bootable ISO containing the appliance disk image. Boots into a simple graphical environment and prompts for confirmation before writing the image onto the hard drive. Useful for performing automated system installs/preloads.
Warning: Overwrites all data on the target hard drive.
Open Virtualization Format (OVF)
The OVF format is an open standard for packaging and distributing virtual appliances. It is not tied to any particular hypervisor or system architecture.
