Virtualization: Ubuntu server + KDE/Xfce - Part I

Filed under
Ubuntu

The Ubuntu server CD is great for virtualization: it's fast, and it also allows for personalization.

The server CD is really an Ubuntu minimal installation, with the added ability to set up mail servers, as well as a LAMP server. Several other features are offered.

I decided to use Ubuntu 7.04 as the host system, since VMware Server is included in the repositories. VMware Server allows you to create VMware images.

I installed the Ubuntu Server CD (version 7.10, Gutsy Gibbon) on two virtual machine images, one designated for KDE, the other, Xfce.

Before I could install any GUI (the Ubuntu Server has no GUI), I had to install a piece of crucial software.
