Installing all the necessary prerequisites, configuring and building AMUSE is not always straight forward. In order to be able to try out AMUSE if you are on a machine that does not support the prerequisites we have created an disk image ("Appliance") with a fully AMUSE ready desktop system.
This may be the easiest way of getting AMUSE. Just download and extract the raw image to copy to a USB stick or harddrive(*), or download the vmdk image for Virtualbox or Vmware. Note that it is based on a 64 bit OS.
We do not know if this a good way to distribute AMUSE, so if you find this useful let us know!

(* example dd command: dd if=myappliance.raw of=/dev/sdx bs=4k replace /dev/sdx by the device you want to copy to. Note that this is destructive! Do not do this unless you know what you are doing.)
