14 If your host machine is any linux system, both {{{virtualbox}}} and {{{virtualbox-dkms}}} packages must be installed. Also check to make sure you have exFAT filesystem drivers. Windows and Mac systems should have it by default. On Ubuntu, the packages required are {{{exfat-utils}}} and {{{exfat-fuse}}}.
15
16 We recommended that your computer have at least 20 to 30GB of free disk space and preferably 4GB of RAM.
17
18 ==== Tutorial Image ====
19 We will use virtual box to boot up a ubuntu 14.04 linux OS image titled ASPECT-tutorial-2.0.ova.
20
21 This image contains the following software packages pre-installed:
22
23 * ASPECT
24 * dealII
25 * Paraview
26 -
Please download [ASPECT-tutorial-2.0.ova] onto laptop you are going to use for the tutorial. The image is ~2.6 Gb, so please allow plenty of time for the download and use a high-speed internet connection if possible.
