 Installation to VM machine

Hi,
I just discovered Paldo, I read about it on the Lazarus website.
I downloaded the testing-x86-developer-edition-20070518 and started it in a Virtual PC (VMware). This works fine. Then I tried to install it on the disk of the virual PC, but this does not work. I can start the installer and this says something about the partitions. Then I click next and there I get the error :
Failed to fork process.
Press OK to ignore ....
Press Cancel to kill ....
I can't go further.
I tried to start Lazarus, but this gives me the same error.
Thanks for any help.

Seems to be the .gtkrc.mine-file in the /home/paldo-folder.

On virtual machines smooth-themes don't work. Do this:

  • Open a terminal
  • run this cmd: mv /home/paldo/.gtkrc.mine /home/paldo/.gtkrc.mine_


After that it should work. I'll add this also to the download-page. I'll might remaster the ISO without smooth-themes on it.

Indeed, that was the trick.
I hope I can use this to evaluate new versions of fpc/lazarus (via svn).
Many thanks.
