Bistromathic virtual machine

We are maintaining a publicly available virtual machine image that can be used for development purposes if there is no readily available computer with a proper GNU/Linux installation. It should be noted, however, that the experience offered by virtualized environments is mostly underwhelming compared to that of a properly deployed system on a non-virtualized hardware.

Host system requirements

The minimal required version of VirtualBox on the host system is 5.0. The following minimal system requirements apply:

• RAM: 4 GB
• Free disk space: 16 GB
• Number of logical CPU: 2

Deployed components

The following components are deployed in the image:

• Full-featured Ubuntu-based OS with KDE desktop.
• ARM GCC Embedded toolchain.
• Core development tools (git, make, cmake, etc.).
• Full LaTeX distribution (texlive-full).
• Eclipse IDE.
