VMware Fusion for the Mac offers a selection of OSes for the guest system in a drop down menu during the VM creation process. There are four options for Debian, v5 ("lenny") and Debian v6 ("squeeze"), each with 32 and 64 bit versions. Linux LMDE is none of the above, being based on Debian Testing, and there are no selections for any flavor of Mint in the list.
Does anyone know, or have any experience with how well Mint LMDE 201204 will work with the "Debian 6 64-bit" version spec in VMware Fusion?
I assume this spec probably controls the default allocation of memory and drive size, and probably the collection of vmware-tools supplied to integrate the guest with Fusion and with the host OS. I can inquire on the VMware forums with this question.
