Are you aware of


?

Due to lack of time, I presume. The current state-of-the-art way to get a VM seems to be the vagrant process linked above.

Someone named Robert (Kaye?) created this ova image, and left the shared-folder path in. (And he’s using OSX…)

You should be able to edit the VM settings, then go to „Shared Folders“, and edit or remove the path.

Because the system inside is Ubuntu.

I found this information. musicbrainzvm login: vm. password: musicbrainz.
A terminal appears with prompt. This seems to complete install and setup.
What now? Typing help gives a list of commands. Where are user instructions? Can you give some good example commands for beginners?

Instructions for building indexes, setting up replication etc. are here if that’s the question.
