Please note that a newer version of the Virtual Machine is available here:

http://www.osehra.org/wiki/virtual-machine-testing-osehra-code-base-pre-configured-2

 

A Virtual Machine has been configured following the instructions in:

* instructions-establishing-and-testing-osehra-code-base-main-page

The main features of this virtual machine are:

- Virtual Box

- Ubuntu 10

- GT.M

- Git

- CMake

- VistA-FOIA release from August 19th 2011

- OSEHRA-Testing

- Pre-configured to submit builds to the Dashboard

The Virtual Machine has been updated with a configuration for interfacing to CPRS.

Many Thanks to Nancy Anthracite for her detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to perform the configuration.

The new Virtual Machine can be recreated by downloading the following files:

* OSEHRA-CPRS-Enabled.mf

* OSEHRA-CPRS-Enabled.ovf

* OSEHRA-CPRS-Enabled-disk1.vmdk

  When connecting to it from CPRS: 

  • The demo Access code is : "softhat2011!"
  • The demo Verification code is : "osehra2011%"

 For detailed instructions on how to connect CPRS to the VM, please see the page 

 

The previous Virtual Machine can be recreated by downloading the following files:

* OSEHRA/VirtualAppliances/OSEHRA.mf

* OSEHRA/VirtualAppliances/OSEHRA.ovf

* OSEHRA/VirtualAppliances/OSEHRA-disk1.vmdk

 and importing them in a VirtualBox installation. The files above can also be downloaded using BitTorrent with:    *  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/151792/OSEHRA.torrent

 

The username is "softhat"

The VM was configured without setting a root password.

As Chris pointed out, "sudo" should do the trick for
all root-related operations.

The password for the "softhat" user is "softhat".

Just write "sudo " before any command for
which you would have needed root privileges.

Hope this helps,

Luis

root password

What is the root password for this machine?  Emacs is giving me errors and apperantly the fix is to change a setting in usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-2.0/gtkrc but I do not have permission,  I did try softhat BTW.

 

When using Emacs 23 and a few other applications on Ubuntu running GNOME, I often get a irritatingly cryptic error message ** (emacs:25074): CRITICAL **: murrine_style_draw_box: assertion `height >= -1' failed. Turns out it has got something to do with the theme I'm running.
Thanks to Alf, it is very easy to get rid of that by tweaking Gtk configuration. Modify the entry in /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-2.0/gtkrc from GtkRange::trough-under-steppers = 0 to GtkRange::trough-under-steppers = 1.

Have you tried sudo and for the password type softhat?

This is an ubuntu box so unless Luis set a root password manually you become root by using sudo.

sudo works

I was not aware of sudo; this is the first time I am using Ubuntu.

Thanks much

Hi,

Thanks for trying the VM and its connection to CPRS.

To address your question, we just put together the
following Wiki page:

http://www.osehra.org/wiki/cprs-connection-vm

Please give it a try and let us know if you run into
any problems.

Thanks

PS. In the process I also learned that copy pasting
images in a Drupal wiki page is not a good idea.
They end up being expanded as a stream of bytes.

My apologies for the heavy email that resulted from
that Wiki edit. The new page is now using images
(screenshots) that were first uploaded as files.

VistA end user question

Hello,  I just joined the team and interested in playing with the VistA system.  I downlowed the VM and up and running.  I would like to get started on how to run the application and play with it.  I am also new to Ubuntu.  I have noticed bunch of VistA related files but I am not sure how to fire up the client or is there a URL from VM that I can navigate in a browser to connect to VistA?

I have downloaded and installed CPRSDemo client.  I was able to open and go through it, however, I got page not found error when I clicked the VistA Web link from it.

Your help is much appreciated.

How to Connect CPRS to the VM

Thanks for trying the Virtual Machine and the connection with CPRS.

In response to your question, we just created the following Wiki page

Please give it a try at the instructions in that page and let us know if you find any problems.

Thanks, Luis

Thanks, Luis, for pulling this together.  It was a fantastic experience to set up a virtual machine on my tiny laptop and install a fully functioning open source stack running VistA.

Credits to the Team

Tom,

Thanks for the kind words. It is great to hear that the virtual machine deployment is being useful.

The whole team contributed to put together this VM. I'm just the messenger carrying the VMs around and helping to distribute them.     :-)

The same VM version is being used for an Open Source course at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. We hope that these VMs will lower the barrier of entry, and encourage new young developers to join the community and learn faster from more experienced VistA developers.

As you tinker with the VM, please don't hesitate to let us know if there is anything that we can do to improve it, and make it more useful to the community.

VIstA for REC support

I understand that VistA is being used extensively in HHS' Regional Extension Centers http://healthit.hhs.gov/portal/server.pt?open=512&objID=1495&mode=2 and the community college courses used to teach HIT. 

I figure every US-trained physician under the age of 50 learned EHRs on VistA (they all rotate through a VA hospital for their residency), and now 10,000 or so Health IT support specialists will likely be given their training on VistA.

So, it's quite an amazing brand, all in all.
