Installation of Artix on Virtualbox

Hi,


I want to install Artix linux on Virtualbox.
Where can I find a documentation which describes this process?
What images do I need?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!
Cheers

Hello,

Artix images and packages are only for 64-bit machines.

You should be able to install Artix normally as on real HW.
To install it you can use graphical installer (calamares) or install it throught cli (see wiki)

When you install it you should also install virtualbox-guest module.
My recommendation is to use *-dkms version because there will not be problem after kernel update.
Sadly this problem is caused because we lack kernel maintainers.
Mna is as good as his tools.

Hi SGOrava,

thank you for your reply.
I am just in the beginning to get in touch with Artix.... :)

What does it mean to use "-dkms version" (of the kernel or the guest additons?).

Cheers! :)

DKMS > Dynamic Kernel Modules System
Kernel module will be rebuild for current kernel version at each kernel update.

For users the difference is that they install package with different name
and update takes little more time and you are sure that the module will work with your kernel.

Or at least that is how i understand it.
If you want more rpofound information look at Arch wiki.
