Hi Leandro,

There is a brand new Unix VM that has just been released, and that
contains many improvements. I suggest that you go to this web site
and download the latest version:


This updated version of the VM has not yet made its way into general
distribution, but I think that you will find it to be the best available

This VM is compiled as a 32-bit executable, which means that you will
need to install various 32-bit runtime libraries on your system in
order for everything to work. The VM can of course also be compiled
as a 64-bit executable, but some of the features for multimedia do
not yet work in 64-bit mode, so overall it is best to use the 32-bit
VM even if you are on a 64-bit Ubuntu system.
