Ubuntu 9.10 Server support on VMware Studio 2.0

Version 2

    In order to add Ubuntu 9.10 Server to be supported under VMware Studio 2.0 you must add it to the supported OS profiles.

    I hope this helps someone.

     

    #1 Copy the Ubuntu 9.10 Server CD ISO to /opt/ISO

     

    #2 Go to /opt/vmware/etc/build/templates/ubuntu and create directory “09” and indide "09" also create "10", so the full path now is /opt/vmware/etc/build/templates/ubuntu/09/10.

     

    #3 Copy the build_profile.xml from /opt/vmware/etc/build/templates/ubuntu/08/041/build_profile.xml to /opt/vmware/etc/build/templates/ubuntu/09/10/

     

    #4 Edit the /opt/vmware/etc/build/templates/ubuntu/09/10/build_profile.xml and change the location of the vadk:path= to match the location of your Ubuntu 9.10 Server CD ISO from step 1.

     

    <vadk:ISO vadk:path="file:///opt/ISO/ubuntu-9.10-server-i386.iso"

     

    Change the line that contains md5sum="

     

    md5sum="55618ad5f180692f9dac20cbff352634" is the latest Ubuntu 9.10 Server ISO md5.

     

    Other lines to change:

     

    vadk:sourceDir="[http://VADK.vadkRoot|http://VADK.vadkRoot]/lib/build/include/ubuntu/09/10/"

     

    vadk:OSverMajor="9" vadk:OSverMinor="10"
