DietPi for VMware (Virtual Machine)

Post by Fourdee » Mon Sep 21, 2015 2:21 pm

DietPi for VMware:
All the great features of DietPi, wrapped up into a lightweight Virtual Machine:
DietPi for VMware allows you to instantly create an optimized and powerful DietPi system. Useful when single-board computers are simply not enough.

RAM = 1GB (can be changed)
MAC address = 00:0c:29:63:69:1d

DietPi-Software:
Complete list of optional, optimized and "ready to run" software.

Install and Setup VMware Player (Windows users):
Download and install VMware Workstation 12 Player:
This will allow you to run the DietPi VMware image on your system.

Extract the DietPi VMware image:
You can extract the DietPi VMware files anywhere on your system. Ideally, keep it in a folder called DietPi_VM_1.

Optional: Change CPU core count and available RAM:
Before running the VM, it would be wise to tweak these values for your host system. Simply open DietPi_vxxx_VmWare-x86_64-(Jessie).vmx in a text editor and modify the following values:
  • numvcpus = "4"
  • memsize = "1024"
Run the DietPi VMware Virtual Machine:
Simply double click the DietPi_vxxx_VmWare-x86_64-(Jessie).vmx file to launch the virtual machine. If you have less RAM or CPU cores than required, you will receive a prompt which will allow you to change those settings.
