Thread: Possible to install VMWare or Virtual Box?

    Default Possible to install VMWare or Virtual Box?

    I recently signed up for VPS with XEN using Ubuntu FreeNX template. I am trying to test a few configurations out with an application I created and have been trying to install VMWare or Virtual Box so I could install a virtual image of Windows. Unfortunately, it is not working at all. Every time I try to install VMWare it has a problem with finding the C Headers or something like. Would anyone be able to provide me some insight into this problem?

    Thanks

    See the Installing Kernel Headers at VPSLink guide for instructions to install the Xen kernel headers.

    So you're trying to install VMware or Virtual Box inside your XEN VPS? If you get that working, please update the thread letting us know

    Thanks,

    I didn't say got, I said, if you get. As in, if you're able to accomplish your objective...
