  • please go to the line the computer guy dot com, in order to view schematics, code and Maur for the projects that you are learning about.

  • Welcome back.

  • So in today's video, I'm going to show you how to install a bunch of desktop into virtual box.

  • So previously I showed you how to install Stall a bun to server into virtual box.

  • But one of the issues that you may run into when you installed the bone to server is that at the end of it, you simply get a blinking cursor.

  • I think it's kind of funny.

  • Somebody left a comment of the last video that said they did exactly what I did.

  • They typed in ping CNN dot com, and then their problem was they literally did not know how to escape out of ping CNN dot com.

  • And so that's what that big problems you get into the server version of Ruben two, or basically, the command line version of any of the Lenox distributions is All you get is the command line.

  • If you know the commands.

  • If you know the arguments.

  • If you know the file and folder structure, it's really easy.

  • If you don't know those things.

  • It's almost impossible, literally to the point that if you start picking a website and don't know how to escape out of pinging a website, you're basically going to have to reboot your machine.

  • So that makes people a little concerned.

  • It's not really fun.

  • It's kind of hard to figure out how to learn.

  • So one of the nice things is, if you use move on to the desktop version is you get a full a graphical user interface.

  • So you get a full modern graphical user interface that more or less, more or less works like Windows or Mac OS does.

  • So if you go and you use the server edition, you get the command line.

  • There's no way you're not gonna feel your way through the command.

  • It's not like with the command line.

  • I don't have Google.

  • I don't really know what I'm doing, but give me a weekend and I'll figure it out.

  • It's not really have the command line works.

  • You know the commands or, you know, when you get a nice modern graph, we user interface, you can go in.

  • You can right click.

  • You can left like you double click, you can click on settings you you can pull, you know, drop down boxes and basically you can work your way through.

  • Go.

  • Oh, OK, Now I understand how this works.

  • So the desktop version of a bun, too, is a very nice and easy way to kind of ease yourself into the Lenox world.

  • And then once you get used to that environment, you can say Oh, okay, okay, I feel comfortable on Lennox.

  • Now let me get to the command line.

  • Because again, one of the important things to understand in the Lenox world is the difference between a server operating system and a desktop operating system is simply that the desktop environment is installed.

  • This isn't poor to understand.

  • In the Windows world, the server operating system and the desktop operating system are actually are actually different things.

  • Right?

  • You can't install active directory service is straight onto a client operating system, and he probably shouldn't play video games on the server operating system.

  • They are actually two different things.

  • The important thing to understand limits world is it's not.

  • You have the base installation of Montu or whatever distribution of clinics that you're using and then you simply install a desktop environment on top of that, and then you interact with the desktop environment.

  • You can swap stop environments out.

  • You can literally even I mean, really, if you want to, you could you could install the server version of the operating system.

  • You could install a desktop environment on top of that installation.

  • You could do all the configurations, you could do everything that you want.

  • And then you could literally remove the desktop environment and just have the command line left, and the server will keep doing whatever the hell it is that you set it up to.

  • D'oh!

  • It was very important.

  • Understand?

  • Of Lennox world that everything is just is just additional components.

  • You have a colonel, and then you put the file says to me that this you and doesn't you had all these things up in that?

  • That's what gives you the finished product.

  • But the nice part is that he can also start peeling things off.

  • And you still have a server as long as you have enough stuff still still installed.

  • So one of the show you how to do today I'm gonna show you how to install.

  • You want to desktop into a virtual machine into an instance within virtual box so you can sit there.

  • You can play around with it.

  • You could mess around, You can see how it works.

  • You get comfortable in that graphical user interface environment so that you're going to feel more comfortable with dealing with command line.

  • So with that, let's go over the computer and I'll show you how this works.

  • So here we are on my computer.

  • I will remind you I am using a Mac book pro for my demonstration system.

  • But since we're using virtual box, everything that I'm doing here should work the same.

  • Whether you're your system is Windows or Mac or Lex.

  • So I just have a Google chrome opened up here, and we are at you bun to dot coms.

  • The first thing that you need to do you need to go over to download and what we're gonna be looking for is you.

  • But to desktop here and we're going to go for the long term support the L.

  • T s version.

  • So when you're watching this video, this maybe two or three years after I've recorded this so it might be 19 or 30 year.

  • Whatever else what you're looking for is the long term support.

  • So there's a higher number here.

  • Basically, what this is is this is kind of the bed aversion, the beta version.

  • So they create this version, they bathe a test that they see what the bugs are, and then that will be moved over through the long term support.

  • So for you, especially while you are learning, stick with the long term support.

  • Right now, that's 18.4 One of the things that we're gonna have to remember, though, is to look to see what the system requirements for the U Bahn to desktop are before we try to install them into virtual box.

  • Because again, one of the problems with virtual box is all the default settings that they configure for virtual box were set literally a decade ago, eso a decade ago when the default was a gig of Ram and 10 gigs of storage and all that.

  • That was a lot right when they set those defaults.

  • That was a lot 10 years ago.

  • Now, if you will leave the default settings and virtual box to a gig of rain and tending the storage.

  • You may run into problems, so whenever you're gonna be using virtual box in stolen offering system onto it, you need to go and see what the requirements are.

  • So with this again, for some reason, they don't make it really easy.

  • Like I would I would think there would be like a link here.

  • It should just be a link that system requirements.

  • But then that would have the lyrics know what if you go down here and what you do is you go installation guides for Aruba to desktop.

  • Click on that.

  • Then once you click on that, you go over the left hand side and you look at the requirements.

  • But of course, of course, this is Lennox World.

  • I would give you all the requirements what you're looking for, the requirements you click on the link that says requirements.

  • Do you think that they're gonna give you everything?

  • Of course not.

  • You know, connect your laptop power sores insure.

  • You have 25 gigs of ah, free storage space.

  • Five gig minimum DVD, blah, blah, blah.

  • We don't need to deal with that S o file, but you'll notice here.

  • They don't tell you about RAM and they don't tell you about CPO.

  • So then you go down here, see installation system requirements, form or specific Click on that.

  • Then you go and we can actually see what the requirements are.

  • And again, this is important because if you leave the defaults in virtual box, it'll turn into a mess for you.

  • So you need to give her her dual core processor.

  • So you should have that again on a 2013 Mac book Pro with 16 gigs around S Oh, this is good.

  • Any kind of modern system should work for you.

  • And in the important thing here is that two Gigs of RAM so bummed to desktop really does need a lot of ram.

  • So bun to server standard Ishan needs 5 12 minimum.

  • The minimal was like 3 85 12 Meg.

  • Their minimum insulation is like 3 80 meg.

  • But it is important, Understand, with a bunch of desktop addition because you've got that full fledged gooey interface that desktop environment you actually going need two gigs of Ram to make this thing work.

  • So just keep that in mind.

  • 25 gigs of hard drive space began.

  • That's important because the default and virtual box is 10.

  • And then VD a compatible blah, blah screen resolution.

  • Everything else is should be fine for you so that we're gonna go.

  • We're going, actually, go and take a look at virtual box.

  • So here we go.

  • We have virtual box.

  • Every have it open.

  • We can see instances of operating systems that have already created.

  • So having a bunch of server I've been using this for testing.

  • Have you been to install demo that I created before?

  • And so now we're going to create an instance, a virtual machine for the desktop version.

  • So what we do is we go over here, click the Blue Knew That I'm going to do But to Jess Top install Demo.

  • So do you remember with this name?

  • This is just the user friendly name.

  • This is the name that will show up over the left hand side.

  • This is not the frickin host name.

  • Host.

  • Name is something we'll deal with later.

  • Uh, then we're going to go when we're gonna say what type.

  • So it is Lennox.

  • We're going to say what version?

  • It's going to be a pawn to 64.

  • We're gonna stay with Machine folder where this is gonna get dumped.

  • We'll just leave that default and then we'll click.

  • Continue.

  • Then this is where we get to ram size, memory size.

  • Look at that Default 1024.

  • If you leave it in 2024 your life is going to get annoying for me again.

  • I've got 16 gigs of RAM on this Mac book Pro.

  • I'm not really doing anything with his MacBook Pro other than doing demos.

  • So I will just allocate three gigs of Ram to this particular instance just to make life easier for me.

  • Make sure I don't run into any bottlenecks that continue.

  • Then I will ask about the virtual hard drive.

  • Do not add, create or use a different one.

  • So we're going to create a virtual hard drive again.

  • Recommended sizes.

  • 10 gigs?

  • Nope, Not Ruben to what file type who?

  • Just leave it a VD.

  • I continue dynamically allocated.

  • Leave that there and then we'll go over here and I'll just not that up to 30 gigs in size, especially especially because it's dynamically allocated.

  • So the file, the virtual desk, the virtual hard drive will grow in the size as it's required, so it will start small and then grow up.

  • So instead of just giving it 25 I'll give it 30 because it will only use as much as it needs anyway.

  • Then I'll go create.

  • And then there we go.

  • We got a bunch of desktop install demo Now from here.

  • What we're gonna have to do is you're gonna have to go to settings now in the settings.

  • I will remind you for a network, make sure the network that you have network enabled you don't have his enable they have problems and attached to net.

  • I've got a lot of complaints and questions in the past from previous videos I've done about virtual box where people are trying to set up a network or do something.

  • And the problem with the reason that they can't connect to the Internet or to the network is they've screwed up something here.

  • So for these these basic things that we're doing right now, we will leave this attached to nap.
