     4The most convenient way to get up and running is to use a pre-configured development kit -- a complete operating system that's been set up to include all the required code and tools, and saved as an image of the system's disk -- and run this "virtual appliance" in a "virtual machine". The virtual machine runs as an application on your machine -- the "host" machine -- and emulates a separate computer -- the "guest" machine. You won't have to install anything but the virtual machine directly on your system. (We're including the official virtual machine jargon in case you need to read virtual machine documentation.)

     6The development kit is a Debian Linux system with several useful tools installed:
     7 * Bazaar (bzr) -- revision control system used on Launchpad, where Sahana eden sources are hosted.
     8 * Firefox with Firebug for viewing HTTP messages sent to and from the browser.
     9 * Eclipse with PyDev for editing and debugging Python code.

    54 === Introduction ===
    55 The dev env virtual machines for Virtualbox and VMware are based on a [BluePrintlivecdinstaller blueprint] and are configured to use about 512MB of RAM. The virtual disk is configured to expand to 20GB. The virtual machine is built on [http://www.turnkeylinux.org/core TurnKey Linux's Core], which in turn is based on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid -- the most recent long-term support release). The machine runs [http://code.google.com/p/shellinabox/ Shellinabox], [http://www.webmin.com/ Webmin], and SSH/sftp as services from startup.
