LiveAndroid 0.2 network eth0 in VMWare Workstation

To enable LiveAndroid 0.2 networking in VMWare Workstation 6.5:


  1. Boot the LiveAndroid VM

  2. Hit Alt-F1 to switch to the root console.

  3. mkdir /data/misc/dhcp

  4. Stop the VM, and "Close" the VM in VMWare Workstation (or Exit VMWare Workstation)

  5. Edit your VM's .vmx file so the "ethernet0.virtualDev" line reads: ethernet0.virtualDev = "vlance"

  6. Open the .vmx file (launch the VM in VMWare)

  7. Set the VM to have at least 384MB RAM

  8. Start the VM; you're networked.
