<JuJUBee>
alkisg, does it matter if they are the vbox or vmware ones?
13:53
I am referring to the osboxes... just realized it was 5 hours ago you typed that learn command

<alkisg>
JuJUBee: it was a couple of days ago actually :)
14:39
vbox or vmware doesn't matter, you can just uninstall the guest modules,
14:39
but we do need to write a "how to uncompress a .vmdk to a chroot" as you can't use the .vmdk as it is
15:20
<JuJUBee>
OK
15:21
I'm just curious at this point.

wonder if qemu-img convert could be made to go direct to squashfs

<alkisg>
In the very first ltsp19 implementation, I used qemu-img etc to access VM images, and it worked fine, but then I realized that I wanted to be able to reuse that code inside the initramfs, where qemu isn't available,
19:17
so I ended up only supporting flat.vmdk files, not compressed ones, with losetup and mount
19:18
But yeah it should be possible to support any VM image if someone wants to reuse that code...
