Join Grant McWilliams for an in-depth discussion in this video What you'll need, part of Linux: System Information and Directory Structure Tools.
- [Instructor] In this course, we will be using Windows to run a CentOS 7 virtual machine in VirtualBox. Don't worry if you're using Mac or Linux as your host OS, though, both will work fine. You'll also want to have high-speed internet for doing Linux OS software updates. You'll also want 10 to 15 gigabytes of free disk space for the Linux virtual machine. If you took my previous course, Linux: Installation and Overview, you can continue using that CentOS 7 virtual machine. If you didn't, you can use a standard CentOS 7 server with GUI installation.
This means that while installing CentOS, you'll want to choose server with GUI on the software selection screen. While installing, you'll also want to make sure that the first user is an administrator.
