Is it possible to change its resolution? 0 Permalink helpechoes April 10, 2016 20:17 Can I do this for VMWare Fusion? 0 Permalink Bernhard VonZastrow December 05, 2016 00:43 That link works! Though you need to use the command "VBoxManage" if you are on OSX (instead of "vboxmanage" which is how it appears to work on Windows). One question, if anyone here knows the answer: How do I "install" the OS onto a "permanent" drive in the virtual machine? When I open the virtual machine it complains that there is almost no disk space available (apparently the install disk we created is only a 1.1 GB hard drive in total). I created a second hard drive (IDE drive) of 16GB in size. I then asked Cloudready OS to "install". It runs for about 20 minutes and then restarts the virtual machine. But every time it reboots, it reboots back into the installer drive. If I remove that drive and try to reboot, it fails to boot at all. Any ideas how to get a more permanent install that works on a bigger drive? 0 Permalink James LaBarre September 13, 2017 21:04 Does not work with v59 (which I need to run to test the CUPS printing). 1 Permalink Alexander Ivanov October 13, 2017 20:28 cloudready-free-59.3 It doesn't boot. 0 Permalink Forrest Smith October 13, 2017 20:56 Virtualbox currently has some graphics issues, especially with CloudReady which uses the Freon graphics stack from Chrome OS instead of standard X-server. We hope to improve this over time, but for now unfortunately VMware is the only option. 1 Permalink Alexander Ivanov October 13, 2017 21:27 (Edited October 16, 2017 07:12) Hi Forester! Thanks! Unfortunately VMWare falls down with an error too. I didn't expect use VMWare and I'll wait VirtualBox. Thanks again! 0 Permalink James LaBarre October 16, 2017 03:04 VMware is not an option, I will have to wait for VirtiualBox as well. 1 Permalink James LaBarre February 27, 2018 14:04 As a test, I tried Cloudready v61 under QEMU/KVM (on my work machine) and it fails to run there as well. So this product is now hard-coded to VMware. 0 Permalink Forrest Smith February 27, 2018 16:33 Qemu/KVM images are possible to use the regular CloudReady Home Edition Download on, if you know what you're doing (though instructions are outside the scope of what I'm able to help with). All of our internal infrastructure for testing/automating uses qemu. Our VMWare images are quirked to accommodate VMware gfx driver peculiarities, so I wouldn't expect the VMware VM to translate well. 0 Permalink James LaBarre February 27, 2018 21:35 I pulled the 64bit image from the page you linked. THAT's the one that fails to boot into the OS. 0 Permalink Please sign in to leave a comment.
