Dopo qualche rilascio beta arriva la versione finale di VirtualBox 3.0

| No comment
Dopo alcuni rilasci beta di rodaggio, gli sviluppatori di Sun hanno reputato VirtualBox 3.0 sufficientemente stabile per il grande debutto.

Come anticipato in occasione della disponibilità della prima beta, VirtualBox 3.0 compie grandi passi avanti nell’area del symmetric multi-processing (SMP) e dell’accelerazione Direct3D/OpenGL: ora è infatti possibile sfruttare fino a 32 CPU virtuali e utilizzare l’accelerazione hardware della propria scheda video all’interno di tutti i tipi di sistemi operativi host supportati.

Oltre a queste funzionalità e all’immancabile presenza di correzioni, VirtualBox 3.0 introduce anche una barra degli strumenti ridotta per le modalità fullscreen e seamless, il supporto a client RDP di Windows 7, Guest Additions per SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 e il nuovo demone vboxadd-service; quest’ultimo, disponibile solo per guest Linux, gestisce la sincronizzazione dell’ora con la macchina host e fornisce informazioni sulle proprietà del sistema guest (OS, utenti attivi, informazioni di rete, etc).

È possibile scaricare VirtualBox 3.0 dal sito ufficiale del progetto.


Screenshots

The screenshots below show several impressions while running VirtualBox 1.5 on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and Solaris platforms:

VirtualBox for FreeBSD. This screenshot shows a first version running Ubuntu. NAT networking works.
VirtualBox for FreeBSD. This screenshot shows a first version capable of running Windows.
VirtualBox for Mac OS X. One virtual machine is running in seamless mode on Leopard. Note the realtime preview of the virtual machine in the dock.
VirtualBox for Mac OS X, currently in beta test. Two virtual machines are visible: one with Windows Vista, another with Gentoo Linux.
Creating a new, empty VM for installing Windows Vista.
The new VM in the VirtualBox main window. Note that an ISO file (containing the Vista setup CD) has been mounted as the VM's CD-ROM drive.
After starting the VM, it boots off the virtual CD-ROM (the ISO file with the Vista setup), and Vista Setup starts up.
Vista is installing into the virtual hard drive.
Vista install complete: the log-on screen.
Compiling VirtualBox on Ubuntu Edgy Eft in VirtualBox on Windows XP.
Details of a snapshot performed after Vista installation. We can revert the virtual machine to this snapshot at a later time.
Damn Small Linux 2.0 works damn well in VirtualBox!
The Virtual Disk Manager allows you to work with VM images.
VirtualBox in Vista inside VirtualBox on XP? Perhaps some day...
A community-based effort is underway to port VirtualBox to OS/2 hosts. This screenshot shows a first alpha version.

VirtualBox 3.0.0 for Linux

Note: The package architecture has to match the Linux kernel architecture, that is, if you are running a 64-bit kernel, install the appropriate AMD64 package (it does not matter if you have an Intel or an AMD CPU). Mixed installations (e.g. Debian/Lenny ships an AMD64 kernel with 32-bit packages) are not supported. To install VirtualBox anyway you need to setup a 64-bit chroot environment.

Please choose the appropriate package for your Linux distribution:

  • Debian-based Linux distributions: Add one of the following lines according to your distribution to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian jaunty non-free
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian intrepid non-free
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian hardy non-free
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian gutsy non-free
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian dapper non-free
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian lenny non-free
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian etch non-free
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian sarge non-free
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian xandros4.0-xn non-free
    The Sun public key for apt-secure can be downloaded here. You can add this key with
    sudo apt-key add sun_vbox.asc
    or combine downloading and registering:
    wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/sun_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    The key fingerprint is
    AF45 1228 01DA D613 29EF  9570 DCF9 F87B 6DFB CBAE
    Sun Microsystems, Inc. (xVM VirtualBox archive signing key)
    To install VirtualBox, do
    apt-get install virtualbox-3.0
    Replace virtualbox-3.0
    • by virtualbox to install VirtualBox 1.6.6
    • by virtualbox-2.0 to install VirtualBox 2.0.8
    • by virtualbox-2.1 to install VirtualBox 2.1.4
    • by virtualbox-2.2 to install VirtualBox 2.2.4

Note: Ubuntu users might want to install the dkms package (not available on Debian) to ensure that the VirtualBox host kernel modules (vboxdrv, vboxnetflt and vboxnetadp) are properly updated if the linux kernel version changes during the next apt-get upgrade.

You might want to compare the MD5 sum to verify the integrity of downloaded packages.
