EECS 182

EECS 182 Virtual Machine Installation (Recommended for local software use on your laptop)

For this course, we've created a "virtual machine". It's like a complete computer, with its own (guest) operating system, Linux Mint, that runs inside your native (host) operating system, Windows or Mac. You'll see what looks like a whole desktop inside a window on your real desktop. It can be a little tricky to remember when to do operations in your regular operating system and which to do in Mint, but it will become clear as you go. We will be able to distribute updates to you, provide you ways of backing up your work, and sharing your work with the teaching staff. Please contact Prof. Prakash if you have questions about these instructions.
