I’ve created some empty bfs harddrive images that you can use to store large files in a place that is easily accessible from Haiku. These will not disappear when you test a new Haiku revision in VMWare Player. (see http://haiku-os.org/downloads/ )
- Pick an image you would like to use (2, 5, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20 gigabytes) Don’t worry, they will only take up space when you start using them.
- Place it in the same directory as where you have your haiku.vmdk and haiku.vmx
- Add these lines to your haiku.vmx: (make sure you replace
ide0:1.present = “FALSE”)
ide0:1.present = "TRUE"
ide0:1.fileName = "— replace with your image name —"
ide0:1.deviceType = "disk"
ide0:1.mode = "persistent"
ide0:1.redo = ""
ide0:1.writeThrough = "FALSE"
ide0:1.startConnected = “FALSE”
- Start Haiku in VMWare player
- Now you can mount the image with a right click on the desktop -> Mount -> your_image
What are you waiting for? Try it out, download large stuff and play with it!
