I am getting seriously tired of running MS Office in a virtual machine. It's been about 18 months since I tried running in on Wine, so I just checked out WineHQ and CodeWeavers and apparently usability hasn't improved at all.
I keep trying to use OpenOffice but whenever I open PowerPoint presentations they are always kind of messed up. This week, somebody sent me an MS Word file for printing labels for a mail merge and the label template file opened up blank. Anybody else have any brilliant work arounds or am I still stuck with my MS Office VirtualBox!! It's really hard to believe that its 2011 and Linux is still missing a world-class Office Suite...
I want to do two things: Set up a virtual machine on Windows 7 to run Ubuntu Set up a way for the virtual machine to read the windows disk or windows to have read/write access to the virtual machine's disk. My goal is to have a place where both Ubuntu and Windows can read and write. What software is good for this task? Are their free programs that can run virtual machines? Also if my machine is running Windows 7 64-bit, can I install Ubuntu 32-bit? Or am I forced to use Ubuntu 64-bit? Or does it not matter?
i just finished successfully installing a virtual machine and windows xp. the windows setup finished no errors, but now when i try to boot up it gives me the blue screen of death (see attachment). after the bsod it just reboots.
note: in the screenshot it doesn't look blue but it is. i couldn't pause it so then it would show blue so it ended up black.
I have 3 boxes running opensuse-11.4 64 bit - Phenom-I 2.6 GHz, Intel Q9400 quad core 2.66 GHz and Intel SU7300 dual core 1.3 GHz (the last one is a laptop). When I run a KVM virtual machine and load it quite a lot all host OS freeze. Interestingly, the laptop works the longest (hours), while the fastest system with Q9400 freezes in max. 10 minutes. After a hard reboot there is nothing in /var/log/messages This bug is 100% reproducible. The guest OS is either RHEL or openSUSE. Is it a 11.4 bug or I am missing something? Have not tried the same hardware with RHEL-6.
My hostmachine is Windows, and install Ubuntu on a virtual machine. I developed some program on Ubuntu. Suppose I want to transfer these files to a folder in Windows. How to find and get these files, which logically are stored in the virtual machine.
I'm just trying to know if is there is a way to run the first version of linux in a virtual machine. Since I am very new to this, my aim is to learn something basic on how the first version of linux kernel was built and worked.
I have removed Network Manager Gnome from my Ubuntu which is a virtual machine(Guest OS),I see the internet is no more running inside this Virtual Machine.While in other Virtual Machines (Other Linux) I had not removed Network Manager Gnomeand I see internet is running fine in them.
I am running Windows 7 inside Virtual Machine Manager - running on Cent OS 5.6. My problem is that the Windows 7 'Window', is only about half the size of the screen. Is there any to change the resolution of the OS running inside Virtual Machine Manager?
I'm running a 64bit Version of Windows 7. I'm also dual-booting 64bit Ubuntu 10.04 (if it matters). However, for this I'm trying to get this working on the Windows 7 side of things. I downloaded the BackTrack 5 32bit GNOME .iso file (BT5-GNOME-32.iso) to my USB stick fine and made a VM on VMware Player. I set the OS as "Other Linux 2.6.x kernel" (if it matters). However, when I go to play my VM I get the following screen. I know I'm supposed to type Startx to launch the GUI. However, nothing happens; it's completely unresponsive (and yes keyboard focus is routed to the VM). There is no response, the cursor doesn't even blink.
I have installed CentOS on a VMwareWorktation and that CentOS, i also install VMware Server (suscess) and setup a guest OS that, but i start this Guest OS, an error show "You may not power virtual machine in virtual machine"...
How do I program a virtual machine to auto-start/boot upon boot up of the host system? I am experimenting with SNORT network intrusion detection system and have installed it inside a virtual ubuntu box which I want to start automatically.
I read once that you could use VMWare's converter to convert a physical machine into a virtual machine to run in VirtualBox. Can someone point me in the direction of a tutorial or just give me instructions on how to do this? I was very confused by the converter and how to get the image to work with virtualbox.
I have ubuntu-8.04.1-server installed on virtual machine. It works perfect. Now, I made copy of this virtual machine. I started that copied machine and it works fine, except one thing: network does not work! I have several others VMs with freeBSD, openBSD or Windows on it, but only ubuntu machine hes network problem after coping. I tried some other VM with ubuntu on it - same problem! I downloaded VM with ubuntu - same problem.I take a look into /etc/network/interfaces file and it looks just as it should (same as before coping) but ifconfig command returns parameters for lo only (before coping there was eth0 and lo).
I successfully installed the virtual box on my fedora 8 system, and also created a virtual machine with windows xp OS, it works nicely, I try to configure the serial port of my virtual machine and try to configure the path for the port "screen shot are attached" it gives me the error message also the "screen shot are attached" for your review.Is kind of mistake is going on during the path setting, and how to set the path for configuring the serial port of my virtual machine so that I can use the hyper terminal tool of windows.
I'm know very little about Linux but decided to set up a machine running Drupal CMS on a Debian machine and it won't go. The folks at Drupal have tried to help but it seems the Debian OS won't do it's PHP thing for Drupal.
That means i'll have to start at the START I guess.
how to become a master of Linux if one is starting from ABC (I can add and subtract, that's what it feels like)
I didn't setup our old system but that server has since been retired due to hardware failure, but we have some new webervers, and a new postgtres database server in place which I need monitoring. Some items include database size, transactions per second, io stats, memory monitoring, or as the DBA put "anything I can get". We had used CACTI in the past for these items, but I didn't do the setup and sondering if that is what is recommended, or something else. I am looking at groundwork open source which include nagios, etc. but figured I would consult the uforums since all these servers are running userver 9.x and 10.x .
My current plan is to choose a lightweight host OS such as Ubuntu or XP, and then install a virtual machine with Windows 7 as the guest OS. Most importantly, I will use the guest OS almost exclusively. I would like to install all of my software onto the guest OS and then save a "snapshot", as Virtual Box puts it. This is to keep my system free of any unwanted programs I will undoubtedly encounter.
Here are some specific questions I would like answered:
What would be good choices for host operating systems?
What percent of my total RAM (4GB) should I allocate to the virtual machine?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of using different visualization software such as Virtual PC, Virtual Box, and VMware Server?
I play a lot of games on Steam. What problems may arise?
I have been using 3CX on Vista for 2 years now. I recently upgraded my PC to run Ubuntu 10.4. I installed Sun's VirtualBox and set up a virtual machine within which I run Windows 7. I then installed the latest version of 3CX in this virtual machine/Windows7 environment and used the back up config to setup the new 3CX system. It works great, but for one thing....

I am dual booting a pc with Ubuntu and Windows 7. I am using Grub as the boot loader. I then boot into Windows 7 and Create a virtual hard drive (.vhd) file using Disk2Vhd. After the machine is converted, I boot into Ubuntu, and import the .vhd into Virtualbox.
