vmware on linux
Posted on 2014-11-09
on my main computer I tried lubuntu - and LOVE how it runs - I'm guessing since lubuntu is lightweight and I have a lot of "horsepower" it runs really fast - ( pent i5, 16gb ram, solid state drive, Geforce GTX 650ti )
so I thought I there still might be times I would need windows. So I tried virtualbox, and vmware. virtualbox was very good, but I, for the life of me, couldn't get usb flash drives to work. So I try vwmare player and everything works fine - I am running win8 with no problems. I did notice that the video is a standard video driver. I have a GeForce GTX 650ti and would like to use the full capabilities - however, since win8 is in a virtual environment, i thought that it might not be possible to install the correct drivers. I figured as far as windows can tell, it has a generic video card because it is a virtual computer.
IS that the case? Would i not be able to use the correct drivers?
