General :: Ubuntu - Running A Virtual Machine On Windows 7?

Jun 5, 2010

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?

General :: Attempting To Get BackTrack 5 Running With A VMware Virtual Machine On Windows 7

Aug 23, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 Freezes When Running KVM Virtual Machine

Apr 8, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Running MS Office In A Virtual Machine?

Jan 21, 2011

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 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).

General :: Cannot Boot Window Virtual Machine On OSX

Feb 4, 2010

In order to get the work done I use a Macintosh Macbook Pro (4,1) with a Boot camp partition running Windows 7.This allows me to use my favorite OS (OSX) with my required work environment (Win7 & .Net) when ever I need them.To allow me smooth usage I use Parallels 5 to virtually boot my Win7 machine from within OSX but whenever I want to do some heavy lifting I reboot into Windows 7 (on boot camp) which allows me to use my laptop's entire resources for my work.

My problem is this: I am now about to begin work for a company in Tel Aviv which uses Linux desktops for development and I need to follow suit. So I've given my self a new Quest: Set up the ultimate web development platform. My goal is this-

1. Install the three operating systems one along side the other - OSX, Ubuntu & Windows 7.

2. Set each one of them up in such a way that allows me to boot into it (meaning I can have any one of these OSs running on its own when I want.

3. Use parallels to virtually boot my Win7 partition - this allows me to keep using Office 2007, which I use often.

4. optional! Use parallels to virtually boot the Ubuntu OS also.

I have managed to complete goal 1 & 2.But I simply can't get 3...In theory it isn't a problem to install windows & OSX along side each other and virtually boot the windows under OSX using parallel's bootcamp virtualizer- BUT - the moment I install Linux along side the other two it break's parallel's virtualizer and it can't boot. I think it is due to parallel's in ability to use GRUB but I'm not actually sure about that.

I am considering compromising and going for a system like this:

1. Install OSX and Ubuntu on the laptop - which means I can boot into each of them.

2. Create a virtual machine for Win7 using parallels.

But that will be a real compromise as far as I'm concerned and I hope to find a way to set up the machine as I described earlier (three OSs which can be booted independently and also loaded in VMs).Just to make sure I'm clear - I HAVE MANAGED to install three independent OSs on the same machine - but that always prevents me from booting them as VMs using parallels...

General :: Connect To Virtual KVM Machine/VNC From Xorg?

Aug 24, 2010

I have a main Ubuntu system and a virtual Windows system, set up using QEMU/KVM. So, I can start Windows using virt-manager and connect to it using a VNC client.But what I really want to have is a new Xorg display that is connected to this Windows system, so that e.g. CTRL-ALT-F8 shows Ubuntu, CTRL-ALT-F9 shows Windows. That'd be a real alternative to a Linux/Windows dual-boot setup.

I know that GDM had some option to connect to another X server (XDMCP), but I couldn't get this to work with GDM2/Ubuntu 10.4. Would this somehow also work to connect to a VNC server (like the virtual Windows system)? how to make Xorg provide a display for incoming VNC connections, but nothing on how to do the opposite.

xm shutdown $VM
# delay a bit the next sequence
sleep 3
