Installing VirtualBox version of IOI 2010 Environment

IOI 2010 Competition Environment Build for VirtualBox

We have prepared a virtual machine to support the IOI 2010 Competition Environment on Windows and MacOSX systems. The download is about 1.5 GB.

Step 1. Download and install VirtualBox
Note: VirtualBox 3.1.6 or newer is required.

Step 2. Download and install the IOI 2010 Competition Environment Appliance

The appliance consists of two files. For each file, right-click and select "save as" or "save link as" and save the files.

Step 3. Install IOI 2010 Competition Environment Appliance in VirtualBox

Run VirtualBox, select File->Import Appliance

Click "Choose" in the Appliance Import Wizard

Navigate to the .ovf file you just downloaded, and click "Open"

Click "Next >"

Click "Import"

Wait several minutes while VirtualBox unpacks the appliance

Step 4. Run the Appliance (Repeat as necessary)

Hit the green "Start" arrow

Wait for Ubuntu to boot

Click on ioi2010-practice to login. Note: VirtualBox will "capture" your mouse. [To release it later, click the right Control key on your keyboard.] Once the mouse is captured, click the grey ioi2010-practice to login.

The password to ioi2010-practice is "ioi2010"

Welcome to the Competition Environment!

Step 5. Get familiar with the tools

In particular, you might want to look at RunC Tutorial or Submission and Testing Server Tutorial

Note: once you have completed these steps, install the latest RunC update.
