Hypergrid To Go
OpenSim virtual reality server with Hypergrid. OpenSim lets you create a multi-user 3D world similar to Second Life. Hypergrid allows users to jump (“teleport”) between your server and others. Large ready-to-use, fully customizable world and asset library (objects, avatar shapes, skins, hair and clothing) included.
- For VirtualBox, get the Virtual | OVF download, unpack it, and use File | Import Appliance in the VirtualBox Manager.
- For VMware Player, get the Virtual | VMware download, unpack it, and use File | Open a VM.
- If you have a multicore processor, increase the number of processors to 2 for better performance.
- Disable the floppy drive.
- Memory: The virtual machines now default to using 4096 MB of memory. They will function (barely) with only 3072 MB, but more is better.
- Patience (1): The first launch takes some time as the virtual machine sets itself up. Subsequent launches are faster.
- Patience (2): If you see a login prompt during the boot sequence, ignore it. The machine will autologin to a graphic desktop when ready.
- Patience (3): The first OpenSim launch is preceded by database unpacking, which takes several minutes. No, it is not stuck! (Watch disk activity for proof.) Do not interrupt it or you will end up with a broken database. Database unpacking is only done once, so if you do interrupt it, you will probably have to start over with a fresh virtual machine.
USB Stick / Hard Disk Image
Dump this format on your USB stick or hard disk and boot from it. You may need to instruct the machine’s BIOS to boot from an external source if you’re usign a USB stick. Write the disk image using either `dd` or image writing software on your OS.
VMware Workstation / VirtualBox (.vmdk)
For virtual machines on VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM-based hypervisors. Test an appliance without formatting any hard disk. VirtualBox and VMware applications are available for most host operating systems. KVM virtualization is for Linux only.
OVF Virtual Machine / ESXi (.ovf)
Open Virtualization Format (OVF) is an open, standards-based format for virtual machines. A variety of hypervisors including SUSE Cloud, VirtualBox, VMware ESX(i), IBM SmartCloud, and Oracle VM support creating virtual machines by importing an .ovf file.
Updated openSUSE to 42.1 with Plasma 5 desktop, OpenSim to 0.8.2, Radegast to 2.18.
Dropped Firestorm (it requires 32 bit libraries, and openSUSE is now 64 bit only).
