DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Install CentOS to a Virtual Machine

Hayek's Linux Manual

Description

This guide will walk you through the process of installing CentOS on VirtualBox

Steps

  • Start VirtualBox
  • Click “New”

  • Name the Machine

  • Assign Memory

  • Create a Hard Disk
    • Dynamically Allocated VDI (default options work for most)
    • Provision the disk size
      • 30G should be plenty, you can always add more later and us LVM to add them to your filesystem
  • Open the machine settings
    • Right click → Settings
  • Select Storage

  • Remove the empty CD Drive
    • Right Click → Remove
  • Add a new CD Drive

  • Select the OS Image
  • Click OK to exit settings
  • Click Start

  • CentOS will boot

  • In this example I was using a LiveCD. I would just run the install to hard disk on the desktop to install CentOS.

  • In the interest of saving you time and a large number of pictures just accept all the default values. If you don't if you need anything else, you probably don't need it.
  • Set a root PW and CentOS will install to disk
  • Reboot and remove the CD Drive with the CentOS image and you will have a fresh CentOS installation
