I'm installing a new server after this weekend, and it musth have both windows server 2008 r2 and linux (probably ubuntu) running, but I'm wondering which one of them I should run virtual. Windows will be used mostly for rdp and for serving asp.net webpages, linux will host some django-applications and a postgreSQL server etc.
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've decided to format my netbook entirely and just run NBR. I still need a windows install because a lot of stuff still doesn't work correctly in wine.
will running a virtual windows install kill mu netbooks battery life quickly or is it the same as running any other program? also what's a good virtual OS program? I think the only one I know of it vmware or something?
I currently run a Windows 7 Compaq laptop with an Athlon x2 and 4gig of DDR2. I want to either set up a dual-boot on my laptop, or make Linux the Primary with Windows running in something like a virtual box. I am very much into Android and I want to learn Linux as a result of that. So which Distro should be considered in a situation like this.
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 am customizing a kernel and am wondering if there is any advantage to excluding drivers/modules I will not need. My goal is to have a very stable file/web server that boots quickly. The only reason I am customizing this one is to add the SATA drivers for the motherboard I am using.
Here is what will be on it: Apache / PHP MySQL DHCP NTP
My goal is to install Windows 7 on a virtual machine running on Ubuntu. The Lenovo machine came with Windows 7 installed, but did not come with a boot disk. What are my options? Should I ask Lenovo for a disk? Will I need to purchase Windows just for the virtual machine?
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 am facing an issue with 100% CPU usage under my system when running VirtualBox. Here are some further details:
My System Information:
CPU 1 name: Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU T2310 @ 1.46GHz CPU 1 level 1 cache size: 32K Data cache. 32K Instruction cache. CPU 1 level 2 cache size: 1024K Unified cache. CPU 1 Mips: 2926.20
Well, each time I run Windows XP from my VirtualBox, I see the CPU usage at almost 100%. I experience a slow system even if no programs were running on my hosted Windows XP version.
I was wondering if there is a way for me to play with the settings so I can slightly enhance the performance. My PC is relatively fast under my Linux operating system. I need to know if there are some tips that I may follow when configuring the settings of my VirtualBox so i can achieve better results.
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 installed 'VirtualBox' on my lucid lynx and want to load the Microsoft XP OS. When I start the virtualization I get this message in the VirtualBox terminal---"Fatal: Could not read from the boot medium! System Halted."--- What could be the problem?
I've accidentally removed (rm -r) the ubuntu-kvm folder that stores the virtual partitions of my VM. The VM itself is still running. The machine is still accessible over the net (it is a webserver) but since there is no more virtual storage I guess there is no way to regain its contents. Are there any steps I can do to regain the machine? I guess if I just reinstall the machine by means of vmbuilder all newly created discs will be more or less blank.
from a local machine i connect to the remote via the terminal:$ ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org VirtualBoxthe vb dialog box appears with the list of the virtual machines on the left hand side, just as if i was runing it locally, but when i try and start one of the machines it crashes the connection!why dose it crash the connection and what can i do to make this work?
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 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 cant get my linux server ( centos5 ) with virtualbox run 2 virtual machines in headless mode. Only one machine gets network connection. Can anyone tell me how to make 2 or more virtual machines work with 1 eth-port in headless mode using virtualbox ?
I have a VM setup in VirtualBox of Win XP. This VM has been setup for well over 4 years.
All of a sudden today, the VM started running very slow. I checked the task manager in Windows, nothing eating up PCU or memory there. I then ran htop. Attached is what I saw. There are many repeat processes with different PIDs. Is this normal?
I have and old scanner, Canoscan 3200F, which is not supported by sane. It will not run in Wine, because there is no Sane support. Does anyone know if I was to install a Windows OS in Virtual Box would that enable me to run it or would I have the same problem as I have with Wine?
First off I am new to Linux and fairly new to working in Networking and Server config's. I have been using Windows for years and have been learning Windows Server 2003 as I have a Technet account, I can get any MS software. I would like to learn Linux and use this as my Server environment. My project looks like this: I have a Quad core, 8gb machine. I want to install a distro of Linux (server or desktop) and run Virtual Machines on it.
My perferred way would be to use Virtual Box but I could use VMware products if that was better. I would like to run WS2003, WS2008, Linux Distro and anything else that will run in a VM. I can figure out that part pretty easily. I want the Linux host machine to run all these VM's and access and use them on my MAC remotely. I have done some research on ESXi as well, but I don't think my Hardware is going to support that. My exact PC spec's are:
AMD x4 940 8gb DDR2 Gigabyte MA770-UD3 2 Velicoraptor Drives GTX 260 I will be dual booting this machine on one of the Raptors for gaming as well.
I need to run an application on a virtual desktop (let say desktop #2) and control it via another app running on the root desktop (desktop #1). That would include screen capture and mouse movements. So basically I capture the application window from desktop #2, scrape it and then click on buttons via my app on desktop #1. Anyway you got the idea.Now my big question is: is that doable ? and if so what's the best language to do it ?
I just tried to install virtual box by downloading the RPM from their website running it with yast. It said install succesful but I checked the install log and this is the result that I got. The program will not start. I want to run opensuse as my host and install Windows XP to run on top of it for my wife.
My software is System Atom 2GB of ram ION Linux 22.214.171.124-0.4-desktop x86_64 openSUSE 11.3 (x86_64) 4.5.2 (KDE 4.5.2) "release 10" NVIDIA 260.19.12
I did try to run sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup it failed I than ran vim /var/log/vbox-install.log and this information was in the file /usr/share/virtualbox/src/vboxhost/vboxdrv/build_in_tmp: line 55: make: command not found
I'm running Android (without installing it) through VirtualBox under Ubuntu. I already added a folder of my Ubuntu system, in the shared folder settings in VirtualBox.Now the question is: how do I access this folder from inside the virtualized Android?where is it?
