DeLi(cate) on VirtualBox
Hi tavvva !
Sorry for the looooong delay, but I was too busy to dive deeper into a new project. Hope I can spend some time in the next weeks...
As I still use my old laptop (Toshiba 4000CDT) on a regular basis and for production purposes, I decided to set up a VM on my "big" machine. This is a ASUS A8V Deluxe motherboard with an AMD Athlon-64 4000+ CPU, ATI Radeon 4270 video card and 2 GB RAM . At the moment Debian Squeeze and ConnochatOS are running -- both are stable now, but I had some troubles during the installation with the ATI card as I use a CRT monitor on this machine.

Additionally I created under VirtualBox two VMs there - one with Windows98, the other with DELI(CATE). W98 is running now, but it still has some video issues. Wel, but let's get back to the main story -- DeLI(cate).

The installation of the VM run pretty well. Only the reboot command CRTL+ALT+DEL at the end didn't work. I had to stop the VM from the VirtualBox menu.
My current settings : 1,56 GB harddisk, 256 MB RAM (maybe not a good idea -- do you think I should reduce the RAM for compatibility reasons when I start creating packages ?).
Before I can test Delicate, I want to get the Guest Additions of VirtualBox running and the the network setup of Delicate . As I have no experience with VMs at all, it may take some time. But then I'm ready to participate at little bit in the development of Delicate, if you want some help.

And last but not least --- thanks for your efforts, and.... merry christmas !
