Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-302) 1. Start a separate Wiki page on Installing Bigtop in VMs (VirtualBox) (make sure to record the fact that one needs >> 2GB of RAM) 2. Record the experience with 32bit OSes

bikramjit ganguly commented on BIGTOP-302:
------------------------------------------

i think perhaps even a 64bit processor does not automatically guarantee hardware based virtualisation?
i think i saw a list of intel chips that do support virtualisation, but i am not sure if all
of the 64bit chips (even among intel) will support virtualisation.

> I was able to successfully run a 64-bit guest OS (ubuntu) on a 32-bit host OS with a
64-bit processor using VirtualBox. This required changes to the BIOS settings to enable hardware
based virtualization support. Where do we document this ? "How to install Hadoop distribution
from Bigtop" wiki page might not be the right place.. Do we create another wiki page for virtualBox/VM
installation instructions ?
