We have created a virtual machine with Scala and several other course-specific software tools installed. You must use this virtual machine to do the homework and projects for the class. Follow the steps below to install the virtual machine:

  1. Download and install VirtualBox

  2. Download cs220.ova (2.37 GB)

  3. Double-click on the cs220.ova file you downloaded above (or, select Import Appliance from the File menu and select the file). When you do, VirtualBox will start and display a prompt called Appliance Settings. Do not change any settings. Just click the Import button. When importing completes, the virtual machine will appear in VirtualBox, as shown below:

  4. Select the CS220 virtual machine and click the Start button. If the machine starts successfully, you will see the desktop shown below:

  5. To test that everything is working correctly, start Google Chrome within the virtual machine and ensure you can browse the Web. You’ll find a link to Chrome within the start menu in the bottom-left corner:

For the curious, this virtual machine is running Lubuntu Linux 14.04 (64-bit). More specifically, it is a minimal installation of Ubuntu configured with this script.
