Pre-built Virtual Machine Images (Ubuntu)

For your covenience, we have built VM images that you can and use. All the necessary tools, software, and libraries are already installed in this VM. If you have a trouble downloading the image, feel free to send an email to wedu@syr.edu, and we will help you get it.

  • New: SEEDUbuntu16.04.zip: This VM was built in February 2018. It is still in the beta-testing stage. The VM is quite stable at this point, but several labs developed for SEEDUbunt12.04 still need to be revised (mostly are minor revision). So, keep this in mind if you use this VM for SEED labs (if a lab is verified on this new VM, the lab description will state that; otherwise, there is no guarantee).
