  • For the Hard Drive creation, take the middle's option: " Create a virtual hard drive now "

  • For Hard drive file type take the default option " VDI "

Get and Run the Virtual Machine


Getting the Virtual-Machine-Scientific-Linux-6.7 ( VM-SL6.7 ) with the ATLAS D&T Software and Samples

In order to obtain the VDI file of our VM-SL6.7, we need to be sure that our host system have space for that, so remember, at least 30GB of space should be reserved for this.
To download the - compressed - file just click here.

You can use the "window" below to get the VM-SL6.7




  • You can directly select the option of Open the file is you have it:

  • Adding the VDI file of the VM-SL6 to the VirtualBox machine: You must click Settings on the up-left position of your VirtualBox window (the " gear " icon)

IMPORTANT NOTE: To login the VM-SL6 use as username = adminuser and as password = adminuser
(This is your root password if you plan/need to do su and/or sudo ).







Inside the Virtual Machine


Software Available

  • You can see the behavior of ROOT using the two versions (ROOT5 and ROOT6 here below) smile
