Anyone has a idea how to install Ubuntu 4.10 on virtual box? My specs are:

  • 4 GB Ram
  • Intel core i3 64 bit@3.40 GHz
  • Windows 8 64 bit
  • Dell inspiron 660s

It is just because of curiosity.Another thing is I like testing out any OS with a graphical interface. And if you can,please provide a download link.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! New questions about end-of-life Ubuntu releases are considered off-topic as per the FAQ. These old releases are unsupported and their use is not recommended. They don't even get updates for newly discovered security vulnerabilities, which makes using them risky. If you install or upgrade to a supported release and this question still applies, please flag and/or comment to request it be reopened. – minerz029 Oct 26 '13 at 8:39

Of course you could install it. I guess if it was in a VM it'd be relatively safe. The question is if it would be any use.

I do not support this and I don't think anyone else will either, you're on your own

It should install fine - you might lack the ability to install any software outside what's on the disk without changing the repositories to the EOL archive repositories… – Journeyman Geek Oct 26 '13 at 9:00
