Mmmm... read the readme... a very subsersive idea... Thanks though ^^
The debian installer doesn't seem to be working at all, nothing happens when I try to launch it, though it does ask for credentials.
perhaps i shouldn't have used the debian with lxde iso but rather should have used one with gnome or kde. My thinking was that lxde seems to be the de of choice on the raspi so might as well use it in the vm. perhaps that wasn't such a good idea after all
it looks like that the debian-installer-launcher is only for when you are running off a livecd and as the vm is running from a "harddisk" it won't work
