「Virtual Server 2005 R2」にFedora 5 をインストール(4)


1. vmadd-kernel-module-0.0.1-1.i386.rpm
This component of the Virtual Machine Additions is the base module for some of the VMAddition packages. This Module is required by x11, Timesync, Shutdown and Heartbeat packages.

2. vmadd-x11-0.0.1-1.i386.rpm
X11ドライバです。インストールするのはX使う人だけだと思います。主にマウス、 S3 Trio64のドライバのようです。
This component of the Virtual Machine Additions for Linux provides mouse pointer integrati on and improved display performance for XFree86/X.org. This works by replacing the standard PS/2 mouse driver and S3 Trio64 driver by an enhanced version that ships with the Virtual Machine Additions. The installer will replace both the S3 Trio 64 driver  file (s3_drv.o) and the PS/2 mouse driver file (mouse_drv.o). This is done to avoid error prone automated changes to your xfree86.conf/xorg.conf. A backup copy of the driver files is made during installation.

3. vmadd-timesync-0.0.1-1.i386.rpm
This component of the Virtual Machine Additions provides the means to synchronize the time between the guest and host.

4. vmadd-shutdown-0.0.1-1.i386.rpm
ゲストOS(ここではFedora5)をホストOS(Windows2003)WebインタフェースとCOM APIからShutdownできるようにするコンポーネント。
This component of the Virtual Machine Additions enables guest shutdown handling from the host through scripts (using host COM API) and the Web interface.

5. vmadd-heartbeat-0.0.1-1.i386.rpm
Virtual Server (Linux) がホストのWebインタフェースでモニターできる"keep alive"メッセージを送ることができるようになるコンポーネント。
This component of the Virtual Machine Additions enables the Virtual Server (Linux)  to send “keep alive" messages to the host which can be monitored in the web interface (Administrative Website).

6. vmadd-scsi-0.0.1-1.i386.rpm
Adaptec AIC7870 virtual SCSI adapterをエミュレートします。
Virtual Server emulates Adaptec AIC7870 virtual SCSI adapter for which all guest operating systems provide driver support. Disk performance using standard Adaptec drivers is not optimal. Therefore, an accelerated  SCSI driver is provided which operates the virtual SCSI adapter in a different mode and achieves much better results.

8. vmadd-install.run (Shell Script)
