Mageia is on DistroWatch’s top 10 list of Linux distributions so I decided to get it up and running to try out. One of the main reasons I chose this distribution is because of its beginner-friendliness.
Before I can try it out I need to install it somewhere. For this small project I used Oracle’s VM Virtual Box. This allows me to spin up multiple VM’s on top of my Windows desktop. I already had VB installed running Mint and Windows 10 beta (I set this up last year). What I’ve done was completely delete both of these VMs, uninstall VB, and reinstall VB v5.0.16.
My goal is to go through, step-by-step, how I did this setup. There is more than one way to go about this. I am going to run through how I got it to work for me.
