Subject description: Whats the best virtualisation software in 64bit puppies.
 

Hi,
I have recently installed Virtualbox 4.3.8 in Fatdog64-360.
And I am running Win7 home basic 64bit in it.

I just want to know what are the Pros and Cons of different virtualisation softwares when used in Puppies.

like Qemu, Kvm, Virtualbox or any other.
( I am not sure if I got the names right, I am new to linux )

Or Wine or similar softwares are better than virtual m/c.

FATDOG offers QEMU-KVM via the PPM as well as VirtualBox. Your choice. Setup and launch information is somewhere for QEMU-KVM. There are some not-so-apparent performance differences in these 2. VirtualBox has a more visual appearance in FATDOG, while QEMU-KVM does not have the visual toolkit available (lib-virt) so that all can be handle thru forms. That said, it means that currently, FATDOG offers QEMU-KVM but the user must use command line to
  1. setup the virtual disks for Virtual Guest(s) use
  2. configure and launch an ISO's boot into the Virtual Guest(s)
  3. research how to bridge a Virtual Guest to use the "real" LAN for DHCP-LAN services
But, at the very worst, it will deliver equivalent performance that one gets from VirtualBOX. Publish reports by industry experts readily found on the internet suggest a KVM delivers a more native performance than gotten from any other VM host offering. This is one of the chief reasons open-source Linux builds a kernel feature supporting it.

But, at the same time, most of them provide good performance even though they all have subtle architectural differences in resource managment and allocation during operations.

In VirtualBOX, setup and configuring is done thru its visual management screen.

Hope this helps

Thanks gcmartin,

Sorry for late reply, My android broke so no internet. But now OK Very Happy

I tried sfs for virtualbox in fatdog but couldn't get it to work. But I downloaded latest version from their site and it installed flawlessly.
It was also quite easy to setup virtual machines.
I have win7 64 bit, Ubuntu 13.10 64bit, running flawlessly.

But I will definitely try out KVM.
Just got to search the net or manpages for it's command line options.

Thanks again
