Quick Start This ain't your first rodeo
Install Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) or Fedora 16
In order to correctly install all the dependencies, we assume a minimal version of Ubuntu or Fedora to make it as easy as possible. OpenStack runs and is packaged on other flavors of Linux such as OpenSUSE and Debian. We recommend using a minimal install of Ubuntu or Fedora server in a VM if this is your first time.
git clone git://github.com/openstack-dev/devstack.git
devstack repo contains a script that installs openstack and templates for configuration files
Start the install
cd devstack; ./stack.sh
It takes a few minutes, we recommend reading the script while it is building.
Guides Walk through various setups used by stackers
OpenStack on VMs

What is this?
These guides tell you how to virtualize your OpenStack cloud in virtual machines. This means that you can get started without having to purchase any hardware.
OpenStack on Hardware
|All-In-One||Run OpenStack on dedicated hardware to get real performance in your VMs. This can include a server-class machine or a laptop at home.||Read »|
|Multi-Node + VLANs||Setup a multi-node cluster with dedicated VLANs for VMs & Management.||Read »|
|Stack-in-a-Box||Run OpenStack from a RAM disk to give it a spin without touching your existing OS installation. Includes PXE and USB boot methods.||Read »|
