CERN VM

  • Want to share a folder between your CERN VM and the host? Use VirtualBox (vm name->Settings) to create the shared folder, then add this to /etc/fstab inside the VM:

Shared   /mnt/Shared    vboxsf defaults,rw,uid=501,gid=501 0 0

Replace the first "Shared" with the name of the shared folder you specified in VirtualBox, and /mnt/Shared with whatever path you want the folder to be accessible as inside the VM (remember to create the directory within the virtual machine, e.g., sudo mkdir /mnt/Shared)

  • Want to install extra software (e.g. vim) into your CERN VM? Instuctions here.
