That is an archived thread from 2013, here is the text from it:

A small VM. It boots in 1-2 seconds.

 

Based on the awesome Tiny Core Linux.

Source: http://www.tinycorelinux.net/welcome.html

 

What I did is only:

- install it to a disk so you don't need the ISO.

- create a VM with 48 MB of vRAM. It only needs 41 MB actually.

- I keep the vDisk at 1 GB just in case you need to add more things. Because of thin provisioning, only 40 MB is used.

- package it into OVA format

 

While I posted another VM, which is smaller in Disk foot print, I'd recommend you use this one. I've run both for 1+ week and VC Ops show that this one takes a LOT less CPU cycle. This one takes around 4 MHz. Takes us back to the good old days of 8086.... 🙂

 

Hope you find it useful. Credit belongs to the smart folks at http://www.tinycorelinux.net/welcome.html

Hi,

The doc was archived by the Wayback machine.

See this link:

It even has a -working- link for the actual .ova file.
