Outrun 0.9 Quick Install guide

This guide shows the steps to install Outrun with a minimal Oracle database (version on VMware Workstation.


  • Outrun ISO image "outrun-0.9-2.iso" available to be used as VMware Virtual CD Image
  • Oracle RDBMS software, in one of 2 forms:
    • Oracle ISO image "ora-64-112040.iso" to be used as virtual CD image (created from Oracle ZIP files)
    • 3 Oracle ZIP files to be downloaded (requires Oracle support login)
  • Secure Shell client available to connect to the virtual machine
  • FTP client available to connect to the virtual machine

Which clients depend on your host system. For Windows, MobaXterm and FileZilla are available after setup from ftp://<ip-address>/tools/

2 Creating the Virtual Machine

  1. Create a Virtual Machine:
    1. Choose "I will install the Operating System later"
    2. Guest Operating System: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 64-bit
    3. Number of processors and cores: 1
    4. Memory 5120MB
    5. Use Network Address Translation (NAT)
    6. SCSI Controller LSI Logic
    7. Virtual Disk Type: SCSI
    8. Disk size: 32 GiB / Allocate all diskspace now
  2. Edit the VM's VMX file and add the following line:
    Disk.enableUUID = "TRUE"
  3. Add an extra disk of 8GiB (using "allocate all disk space now")
  4. Mount the Outrun ISO image on the virtual CDrom

3 Installing Linux & Outrun

  1. Boot the machine. You should see the boot menu:
    Error creating thumbnail: File missing
  2. Select "Install Outrun System" or wait for the timeout (it will start installing automatically)
  3. Wait for the postinstall process to complete. The login prompt should show "Outrun for Oracle 0.9 on CentOS release 6.6 (Final)"
  4. Login as root
  5. Start the menu menu
  6. In menu Networking:
    1. set Auto Hostname to "OFF" and set the hostname manual to "outrun"
    2. set DNS Spoof to "ON"
  7. Restart networking via the networking menu
  8. Note the IP address in the status window.

4 Install Oracle

  1. Log in as root via a remote SSH shell (ssh root@<ipaddress>)
  2. Start the menu again
  3. Verify that you see the hostname "outrun.local"
  4. Go to menu System
  5. Run "Install Oracle package"
  6. Exit the menu and restart it (workaround for an open issue, it reloads the newly installed Oracle menu)
  7. Enter the menu "Install"

If you have the "ora-64-112040.iso" file available, continue. Otherwise, create the image first.

Creating the ISO image
You only need to do this once even if you install Outrun many times.
  • Download from Oracle's Support website the following files:
  • Upload the files to the Outrun FTP server (ftp://ip-address/incoming, use an FTP client for this such as FileZilla, browsers don't upload)
  • Go to main menu - Install and select ISO (Create Oracle ISO CD image)
    • Select the required version:
    • Select Create and wait a few minutes for the process to complete
  • Download ora-64-112040.iso from ftp://ip-address/incoming
  • Using the FTP client, remove all files from the incoming folder (to free up space for Oracle installation)
