Terry's Linux Bash Scripts for QEMU, VMware and VirtualBox Download TempleOS V5.02 - Standard Distro (16.9MB) Download TempleOS V5.02 - UltraSmall Distro (2.05MB)

Native Install

Burn a CD/DVD from TempleOSCD.ISO and boot it to run natively.

VMware Install

VMware works on Linux or Windows. You can look at my VMware Linux Bash Scripts. Use VMware to run the ISO in a virtual machine. Aim the CD/DVD at TempleOSCD.ISO. You need 512+ Meg of RAM. Buy VMware Workstation for, like $250, and you can mount a drive to move files in and out. Multicore works in VMware. I use VMware Workstation in Ubuntu. If you want to be like Terry A. Davis, this video shows how to make your VMware set-up pretty close. Otherwise, use the standard /Home files.

QEMU Install

QEMU works on Linux or Windows. You can look at my QEMU Linux Bash Scripts. You need 512+ Meg of RAM. Use QEMU to run the ISO in a virtual machine. Install QEMU-KVM. Then, create a virtual hard drive. If you want to be like Terry A. Davis, this video shows how to make your QEMU set-up pretty close. Otherwise, use the standard /Home files. Wiki on QEMU Images You make a file for your guest hard disk image. >qemu-img create -f qcow2 my_disk.img 3G Then, boot the CD/DVD ISO and install TempleOS. Type this command on one line, with the number of cores you have: >qemu-system-x86_64 -hda my_disk.img -machine kernel_irqchip=off -smp cores=1 -enable-kvm -cpu host -m 2048 -rtc base=localtime -soundhw pcspk -cdrom TempleOSCD.ISO -boot d After installing, boot the hard disk normally. Type this with the number of cores you have: >qemu-system-x86_64 -hda my_disk.img -machine kernel_irqchip=off -smp cores=1 -enable-kvm -cpu host -m 2048 -rtc base=localtime -soundhw pcspk To access the guest hard drivbe, use this to connect the guest image to /dev/nbd0. It acts like any other block device. This will mount it to mount point, /mnt/my_disk. >sudo modprobe nbd max_part=16 >sudo qemu-nbd -c /dev/nbd0 my_disk.img >sudo partprobe /dev/nbd0 >sudo mkdir /mnt/my_disk >sudo mount /dev/nbd0p1 /mnt/my_disk

VirtualBox Install

Use VirtualBox to run the ISO in a virtual machine by aiming the CD/DVD at TempleOSCD.ISO. You need 512+ Meg of RAM. I don't think this works, anymore. Install virtualbox-fuse package if you are running debian/ubuntu. >sudo vdfuse -f image.vdi /mnt/TempleOS >sudo mount -o loop /mnt/TempleOS/Partition2 /mnt/TempleOSD See Virtual Box Documentation. * "Linux" is a trademark owned by Linus Torvalds. * "QEMU" is a trademark owned by Fabrice Bellard. * "VMware Player" and "VMware WorkStation" are trademarks owned by VMware, Inc. * "VirtualBox" is a trademark owned by Oracle.
