Hi,

This page is about navit as a virtual appliance. This means that you run a virtual machine, which runs navit itself.

This ofcourse will add some overhead.

On the otherhand if you have a machine that you cannot install software on, this virtual appliance might be a good method of running navit, without "installing" software.

I use qemu for the virtual machine. This program runs in userspace, so no "installation" is necessary.

For the OS that runs navit, i have choossen gentoo because it optimize code for the emulated CPU.

Below are the general steps to install qemu, details can be added over time.


Step 1 Download qemu and install it, using these instructions.
