Posted by Daid on Nov. 12 2004,09:33I'm wondering, is the Embedded ISO any diffrent then the normal DSL ISO? And if so, what is the diffrence?
Posted by henk1955 on Nov. 12 2004,10:01i think there is NO difference.
btw to can use ANY iso file thats bootable.

Posted by AwPhuch on Nov. 12 2004,15:34I tried it on SLAX with 256Megs reserved ram and it was almost unbearably slow on a 2.4Ghz P4 machine...
Was nice to see though
Posted by salan3 on Nov. 16 2004,15:26funny i have just tried slax on a tosh laptop (a30, ) using 128 on a p4 and it was fine.I usually use VMWARE and thought that i would try embedded.
The hard disk image wont partition though (wont let me write table comes back with ileagal op) so am I missing something?
Posted by AwPhuch on Nov. 16 2004,17:24VMWARE is a completely different program from qemu...
VMWARE cost alot of $ (if its legit...hehe), qemu is GPL and is still in development
I use VirtualPC from Connectix (b4 M$ bought em out..go figure)
and thats what I use to compile kernels and whatnot for making MODS on my firewall app called SmoothWall...
Those other apps have been tested, retested, and have a huge funded team working on them, qemu is a different story, but its FREE

Yep. Multiple licences!

Interested to hear what you think of it. Iwas not so keen.

Can you give me a url for qemu as I would like to find out more.
It would be an ideal alternative for my students to use. (I am a lecturer at a college of further ed).
I use VMWare for demonstrations and for testing new OS's/configs and find it very good.It is to pricey for my students to get though and a lot would like to try versions of linux etc but do not want to alter there machine (usually a family machine and alterations are on pain of death!)

Its still in development (isnt all linux in development!!)
It unfortunately runs slower/less efficient as VMWare or VirtualPC
Its not bad though..it at least runs
Good luck with it!
