I have an Ubuntu OS installed using virtualbox. Inside the Ubuntu OS, I have installed QEMU, GCC for ARM and GDB for communicating between ARM and QEMU. My question is, if I export this image using the "Export Appliance" option from VirtualBox and use it another machine, will that contain the QEMU, GCC for ARM and GDB installation in that image?

1 Answer 1


Yes, an appliance includes the disk image(s), so any software installed inside the virtual machine will be part of the appliance. That's kind of the whole point of exporting an appliance.

  • thanks. I was able to see the software packages in my exported appliance.
