Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

Install Ubuntu on Mac VirtualBox


I was a bit confused on how to do this, but did some research and created this documentation. I figure others could benefit from this as well.

    Please note the Linux Foundation also offers pre-built virtual machines with all the packages needed for the course(s) pre-installed. At some point you should have been informed of https://training.linuxfoundation.org/cm/prep and then you can scroll down to LFS207 for course specific requirements. Further down the page there are instructions for retrieving pre-built machines (although we do not give specific instructions for configuring the hypervisor, be it Virtual Box, VMWare or KVM etc.)

    Whether you run you own or a pre-built VM you should run ./ready-for.sh LFS207 --install as described on that page.

    Chapter 1 also has reference to a document that describes installation which can also be retrieved from https://training.linuxfoundation.org/cm/LFS207
    This also has some links to videos of installations of major distros.

    Thanks for your guide, I'm sure people will find it useful.
