“KDE 3.5.5 on openSUSE 10.2” for VMware Player
- VMware Player for either Microsoft Windows or Linux
- 3 GB HDD space for archive download, uncompressing and running
- 512 MB memory for running host OS, VM Player and virtual machine
Decompress the archive and open the .vmx file with VMware Player. The virtual machine will start to boot and as user “guest” with password “guest” you can log into the KDE desktop.
The password for the “root” administrator user is “toor”. The VMware tools are installed.
As “root” you can start the “YaST” system configuration and add users and install more applications of KDE and openSUSE 10.2. Installation sources are preconfigured. And many more installation sources are available.
If you use the X-server configuration tool SaX2, to incease the screen resolution or change the keyboard layout, you cannot to move the mouse outside the VMware Player window without pressing the escape shortcut before anymore. This can be fixed by replacing the “mouse” driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf with “vmmouse”.
