I am not aware of any prebuild VM image that contains a complete
development environment for Genode.

It is unfortunate to hear that you struggled to set up the build
environment. You question somehow hints to a lack of documentation on
our side. Admittedly, the current documentation is primarily targeted at
developers who are already familiar with Linux. However, I would love to
improve the documentation for people who are less experienced in Linux
as well. For doing this, it would be very interesting to know where
exactly you got stuck.

I will gladly assist you with the process of setting up the development
environment. Please just provide the specific points where you ran into
