Virtual Machine Software (VirtualBox)

Install the free VirtualBox. We recommend Version 6.0.4 (please stay away from the newer versions, as they still have some issues with our VM). Although our instructions are only for VirtualBox, the pre-built VM images can also run on VMWare.

Pre-built Virtual Machine Images (Ubuntu)

All the SEED labs should be conducted in our pre-built virtual machine image, because we have installed all the necessary tools, software, and libraries that are needed by the SEED labs. Students just need to download the VM, and run it using VirtualBox (or VMWare).

  • SEED Ubuntu16.04 VM (32-bit): This VM was built in June 2019. We have made some small changes based on the 2018-May version.
  • SEED Ubuntu12.04 VM (32-bit): This VM was built in Jaunary 2016; it has been phased out. However, two of the SEED labs still depend on this VM.
    • Download the image from the following server (the MD5 checksum of the file is 6ec9c429a2f4a9163530ada20f0621dc):
    • User Manual: includes the account and password information, list of software and servers installed, and configuration.
