Running Ubuntu Linux on Virtualbox

Post by capellan » Thu Sep 20, 2018 7:47 pm

Hi All,

Recently, an electrical brownout damaged the Ram memory
of my Ubuntu Linux computer. Until I repair the hardware
and recover my data, will use Ubuntu Linux on VirtualBox.

Which Ubuntu version plays better with LC9?

Thanks in advance!

The latest LTS is always the best version unless you have a specific reason to use something earlier. Currently that's Ubuntu 18.04.

I will try first Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. If it does not works out-of-the-box
then will try 16.04 LTS. The purpose of this installation is learn
and practice some bits of Assembler as explained in this ebook.

I have VMs with both 16 and 18. If not trying to compile from source, then 18 works well. It has been a month (or more) but I was not able to link on 18 when I installed it.

Thanks a lot for this advice! I will check this
feature to learn why it does not work.
