Building a virtual machine | Computer Science homework help

For this project, you will create a virtual Linux machine that will be hosted on your computer.

  • To virtualize the system, you may use free solutions you find online, such as VMWare Player or VirtualBox, and you will use Ubuntu 18.04 (a deliberately older version) as your operating system. You might choose to download a pre-built image of Linux rather than installing your own. (Hint: see https://www.osboxes.org/ubuntu/ (Links to an external site.) for some ready-made images.)
  • In your submission, you will need to prove that you have completed the project by discussing your process and sharing screenshots
  • This virtual machine will be used again in next week’s assignment

 The additional instructions below are to assist you with Ubuntu installation.

  

Create a new Virtual Machine named Ubuntu Desktop. Verify that the version is Ubuntu 64-bit. Specify four gigabytes of memory. Create a virtual drive, provision. Specify the size as 128 gigabytes. Start the virtual machine and specify the Ubuntu Desktop ISO. Click start. Configure scaling to make the screen easier to read. Confirm your language and click install Ubuntu. Confirm your keyboard layout, click continue, specify normal or minimal installation. In this case, we’re selecting minimal because it’s faster and click continue. Confirm that you would like to erase the disc and click install now. Confirm that you would like to write those changes to the drive. Confirm your time zone. Click continue. Specify your name, your computer’s name, and pick a username. Specify a password, confirming it, and click continue. After reboot, log in as your demo user, specify the password and clicking sign in .
