Exclamation Vagrant files of 32bit and 64bit images that can be used for SageTV Linux Development

If you are not familiar with Vagrant, then check out the link, and read about it. In a nutshell it's a VM manager that runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac, and you can use it to provision a Virtual Machine that you can then use to develop/test SageTV Linux.

This is similar to coppit's efforts with Docker, and many thanks to coppit, since I used his Docker config as the basis for my Vagrant configurations

NOTE: You need to install Vagrant from Vagrant's download page, and you'll also need to install VirtualBox. (You can use VMware, but you'll have to manually change the Vagrantfile.

If you clone the REPO and cd into the 32bit or the 64bit area and run
vagrant up
vagrant ssh
You'll have a linux environment that is fully configured and ready to being compiling the sagetv sources. You just need to clone the sources, and then run the build commands.

Each environment has Oracle's Java 8 installed, and the JDK_HOME and the JAVA_ARCH configured correctly, so when you run it should just work.

As a quickstart, once you run vagrant ssh, you can do the following

cd /vagrant
git clone
cd sagetv/build
By git cloning into the /vagrant area, you'll be able to access the GIT code from your Host machine and the Vagrant image. ie, you might decide to edit the code on windows, using Eclipse, etc, and then use the Vagrant image to do a build.

This is intended for people that want to quickly get up an running with SageTV linux development on Windows, Linux or Mac. If you are not a developer this this is of no value to you.

Wouldn't it be cool if it were possible to create a Vagrant image for Windows development. Sadly, I don't think that would ever be possible

I've tested this on Linux and Mac, and it works for both 32bit and 64bit images. I'm assuming it would work in Windows as well, since Vagrant runs on Windows.
