So here’s what I’ve done, as per 

1. Download & install VirtualBox. No problem!

2. Download LilyDev 2 from 
<>. Um… There’s only one 
file that seems like it’s the downloadable one (, and 
it’s not named as per the docs ("lilydev-vm-fedora-VERSION"). Is that a doc 
problem, or am I being daft?

3. Unzip the downloaded file. It becomes a folder containing an .img file. 
Okay… except the docs claim it should be a "raw" file. So do I try to convert 
that to VDI?

Note: I’m on Mac OS High Sierra (10.13.6).
