Anyone know an easy way to create an Ubuntu VM on Windows 7?
Just dl virtualbox and a Ubuntu DVD ISO, create a new, empty VM with the ISO in the virtual CD rom, boot, install.
Don't be too greedy with diskspace. Being greedy degrades performance (sparse files are ok though)
Btw, the reason why I replied:
- don't think crosscompiling means you don't need to get an target installation.
You still need it. Crosscompiling is more a solution to not have to boot the VM everytime, or to generate nightly snapshots once you found a working configuration.
It is usually not doable to just crosscompile your app to a platform you don't have at all, and have no experience with.
Just installing the "other" OS, and taking your first steps there is easier. Trust me.
