It's about how to, on your Ubuntu 10.04 system, install VirtualBox, then download and run the spanking new Nuxeo DAM 1.1 digital asset management software in a VirtualBox session. And ... go.
On your Ubuntu box, add the appropriate repository for VirtualBox, grab the GPG key, update the apt cache, then go get the latest version of VirtualBox:
$ sudo add-apt-repository \ "deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian lucid non-free" $ wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | \ sudo apt-key add - $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install virtualbox-3.2
Assuming all that worked, you should find a new entry for "Oracle VM VirtualBox" under the menu entry Applications -> System Tools. Feel free to start it, but don't expect to see anything there yet, of course. Now shut it down. Movin' on ...
Go and (arbitrarily, given that there are two virtualization formats you see there) grab the 700M+ OVF (Open Virtualization Format) form of the Nuxeo DAM appliance from the download page and stash it anywhere you want. It's a Zip file so you'll want to unzip it:
$ unzip NuxeoDAM-1.1-VM-ovf.zip
which will give you a subdirectory with, among other things, a
nuxeo-dam.ovf file. And that's all you really need -- start VirtualBox again, select File-> Import Appliance, point the selection dialog at the
.ovf file and follow the instructions. Once you're done, you should have a selection of a "nuxeo-dam" appliance. Select it. "Start." Seriously, does it get any easier than that?
Oh, and be patient. As long as you see the "Nuxeo DAM is starting" message, it's not fully running yet. It'll let you know when it's ready.
Bonus open source goodness: You can do all of the above with Nuxeo's document management software as well.
