Well, Andrew Dugdell beat me to posting about this, but an updated version of the Virtual Machine Additions for Linux is now available for download.  With this version the following distributions of Linux are supported:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 (update 6)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 (update 6)
  • Red Hat Linux 9.0
  • Red Hat Linux 7.3
  • SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10
  • SuSE Linux 10.0
  • SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9
  • SuSE Linux 9.3
  • SuSE Linux 9.2


You can download these Additions from Microsoft Connect.  Note - while the Virtual Machine Additions are only available on Connect - they are not Beta, but are final release versions and are fully supported.

    Any chance you'd be willing to provide some guidance in how to "nop out the SetCursor call in "Virtual PC.exe""?

  • Hey,

    Would appreciate it if anyone was able to help with this one.

    I tried to convert the .rpm files to .deb so that I can install them on Ubuntu. I used alien and ran the following command on the terminal:

    sudo alien -d filename.rpm

    This returned the error:

    error: incorrect format: unknown tag

    I have googled this but haven't been able to get to the bottom of what it means so far. Any ideas?
