Since we run Debian and Ubuntu-based platforms, we must use the Fedora VM image. I followed these steps for installation.

1. Download MissionLab FC4 VMWare image from Georgia Tech at
2. Download VMWare Player from
3. The VMWare Player file is a .bundle. Mark it as an executable (chmod +x), and execute as root. This will launch a graphical install window.
4. Once VMWare Player is installed, load the VM image, and login (mast / masttastic)
5. Configure the network (you will have to re-probe for the mac address) and download Mission Lab.
6. Compile Mission Lab (I said no to all the prompted questions--it failed when I said yes)
7. I changed the login information from mast/masttastic to mast/[our bot account password]
8. the mission lab binaries should already be in your path. (mlab, cfgedit are the two main ones). Try them out to see that they work
