AltME: Syllable

I don't see MS supporting it on Wikipedia, but it is supposed to work across VMware and VirtualBox

It's unclear how to convert OVF to QEmu. Does the OVF contain a VMware VMDK disk image file?
AdrianS
yes
and an iso along with anothe couple of files - .mf, .ovf
btw, are you interested in having 50 GB on box.net? I see they're asking me to invite friends to get this amount for free
Kaj
An ISO and a VMDK? That sounds wrong. Is the installation CD still in that ISO?
If the CD was mounted as primary master, that would also explain why the installation partition couldn't be there
AdrianS
ah, you're right - forgot to unmount
Kaj
That would double the size. Not good for a download :-)
AdrianS
no, the second time around, I put the cd on the second controller
Kaj
The VMDK is good, though. Although it's a VMware format, QEmu can use that. That's why we always had VMware images in the past
AdrianS
but vmw workstation wouldn't let me put the hd as first dev on first controller with the cd as the second device
Kaj
OVF seems to standardise all the settings that usually didn't transfer, so that's good
Kaj
We're hosting on Amazon S3 and several other places. I appreciate the Box.net offer, but it would just complicate our infrastructure further. A lot of our time over the years has gone to managing that, so I am firm on simplifying things
AdrianS
np - wasn't trying to push it for any personal benefit - just thought you might be interested in any free, significantly sized offline storage. Most of the other free ones are only around 5 GB
although I think MS also has 25 GB or so with SkyBox
Kaj
I understand, my only issue is with our management effort
AdrianS
can anyone see if this link to the VM works? It's hosted on SkyDrive
Kaj
It wants cookies and it says it will then use my Live ID, which I don't have
