Decided I needed to keep cleaner dev environments using vagrant today, so did a quick install. Easy:

  1. Download Virtualbox

  2. Download Vagrant (debian package works perfectly for ubuntu)

  3. Realize that virtualization stuff isn’t enabled by default on my motherboard…

    sudo apt-get install cpu-checker
    sudo kvm-ok
  4. Enable VT-d and VMX (under CPU settings) so that virtualization works. Hard reboot system to make sure it’s enabled, run sudo kvm-ok again to double check things are good.

  5. Try it out!

    mkdir -p ~/vagrants/precise64 && cd ~/vagrants/precise64
    vagrant init hashicorp/precise64
    vagrant up
