    Default Linux Live CD?

    Hey guys,

    it would be awesome if there would be a Linux Live CD with a ready to use zimbra server. I don't think it would be too hard for you unix experts to do that? Just grab a Live CD from Knoppix/Kubuntu or whatever and install it... make an bootable image and we all have lots of fun! :-)

    Then we could test it "out of the box" in VMWare or Parallels!

    Thanks.

    SA.

    Hey,

    thanks for the reply.

    I don't have VMWare nor I have Windows on my Mac or Linux.

    I read the pdf about VMWare.. and it seems not to be a "out of the box" solution.

    Greets.

    You don't need windows for VMware, there's a VMware server (free) for Linux. Anyway, you're not likely to get a live cd for any version other than a (currently) available operating system but I don't think it's going to happen.

    VMWare is about as 'out of the box' a solution as you could possibly get. I'll explain:

    The VMWare player can be downloaded for free at http://www.vmware.com/products/player/ Install that on your linux OR WINDOWS machine, grab the pre-built VMWare appliance from http://www.vmware.com/vmtn/appliance...ry/zimbra.html , boot it, set a few variables (I am making some HUGE assumptions here regarding this 'appliance'), and wham, bam, thank you m'aam, you have a running Zimbra server. I don't think it could get much easier. . .
