MicrosoftRed Hat Deal Shows Need for Virtualization Support
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 20, 2009
A virtualization deal struck Monday between Microsoft and Red Hat shows the growing need for vendors to ensure customers can get cross-platform support for applications running in virtualized environments.
Under the terms of the deal, outlined in blog posts by Microsoft Senior Open Source Community Manager Peter Galli and Microsoft Virtualization General Manager Mike Neil, both companies will validate and offer customer support for each other's OSes on their virtualization technologies.
Stephen O'Grady, an analyst with open-source research firm RedMonk, said the deal underscores how even competitors have to cross party lines to support virtualization, which is becoming an integral part of data centers that, more often than not, include both Windows- and Linux-based servers.
No doubt Red Hat wanted to be sure to clarify that its deal with Microsoft is not the same as the one Microsoft struck with Linux distributor Novell two years ago, which did include exchange of IP and cash

my CPU (Celeron) doesn't support KVM/VT-x
If I upgrade just the CPU, will it be possible to use KVM mode in qemu and 64 bit guests in vbox?
NO hardware virtualization support for sony vaio
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 16, 2007
A couple weeks ago (beginning Novermber 2007), I bough a Sony Vaio business notebook (BX41VN). My intention was setting up a thin Linux server system, using KVM on top of it for hosting various virtual OS that I need for doing my job.
When configuring the system I discovered that Intel VT could not be enabled in the BIOS. Even after BIOS update, VT was still missing. After contacting the dealer, he asked the question directly to Sony and got the official answer that Sony does definitively not support hardware virtualization on Vaio laptops. The dealer told me that they did not give any further explanation, why.
For many years, I was really a Vaio fan, but now I'm disappointed. So I gave the notbook back and took a Toshiba Tecra S5 instead. This notebook supports VT, although the display is not as brilliant as Sony.
At least Toshiba is not a technology blocker.
Announcing the Release of ChromiumOS64 with Xen Virtualization Support

Announcing the Release of the World's First 64-bit Build of Google's Chromium OS with Xen Virtualization Support
I have integrated the open source Xen hypervisor 3.4.3 RC1-pre and Jeremy Fitzhardinge's pv-ops dom0-patched kernel 22.214.171.124 into my 64-bit build of ChromiumOS. With the integrated Xen virtualization support, you can now create and run virtual machines or guest operating systems in Google's Chromium OS. If you do not have a need to create virtual machines, you can simply run ChromiumOS64 as a Xen domU virtual machine.
To run Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003 and/or Windows Server 2008 as a hardware virtual machine (HVM), you need to have a processor with hardware virtualization support, e.g. Intel VT-x or AMD Pacifica.
To enable PCI/PCI-e and/or VGA pass-through to HVM virtual machines, you need to have a motherboard with a supporting chipset capable of Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed Input/Output (VT-d). VGA passthroug
LXer: Red Hat expands to desktop virtualization
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 30, 2010
Published at LXer:
Open-source enterprise software company Red Hat has updated its virtualization platform, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (REV), to include support for desktop virtualization, the company announced on Monday. The beta version of REV 2.2 will include a number of new programs that will allows customers to run a virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI). "It will allow you to deploy a RHEL [Red Hat Enterprise Linux] desktop, or Windows XP, or Windows 7, on a secure high-performance hypervisor platform," said Andrew Cathrow, who is a Red Hat senior product marketing manager. "By using a VDI, you are moving the [operating system] from the end user's device into the data center, where it is easier to manage and maintain."
Xen on CentOS 5, i386 not enabling full virtualization support

Hello again, everyone. Xen says that my system can support full virtualization, but my BIOS doesn't enable it. How do I fix this?
I am applying for a job at Mozilla and need your support!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 31, 2011
Some time ago, someone suggested here in the forums, that I should apply for a job at Mozilla, because of my passion about Firefox Add-ons and community support.
Today I received a rss feed from Mozilla about job openings and one of the positions is "Add-ons Community Manager", which I believe is perfectly tuned with what I have been doing here in the forums and through extension development.
I really would like to be part of Mozilla team and I couldn't think about a better way of showing my involvement with Firefox users support, than asking the Ubuntu community opinion.
So here I am. If you think the job below has my face on it, please leave some words of encouragement.

Need tech support or somewhere I can buy a Linux ready laptop in Australia
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 29, 2014
Hi, I am on my second brand new computer in 4 weeks, I am trying to run Ubuntu 14.04 and am just getting problems. Does anyone know where I can get tech support to solve problems or do the install or where I can buy a linux pre loaded laptop in Australia?
Normal shops / tech support services do not / can not help with Linux, US based linux pre installed laptop shops will not post to Australia.
Linux now have linux pre loaded laptops at 2 x the price, worked with tech support, he emailed me a heap of commands to run on my Acer Aspire V7-582p trying to get the screen working got nowhere, tried remote access to my acer, failed to connect to it and I am waiting for a reply as to what next. I think he is just too busy for a seemingly difficult screen not working problem.
I can run the Acer V7 on windows or live CD, thought it would all be great, looked up compatibility with Ubuntu on forums it is noted as compatible, tested the machine in shop with live CD all great, get it ho

How to deal with the ECC support feature in NVIDIA graphics cards
location: linuxexchange.com - date: September 7, 2014
the server have setup two NVIDIA K20m cards, but with ECC enabled. I have observed that the Volatile GPU-Utilization is high using the nvidia-smi -a command, even through no computing task is running in the card. The K20m is just used for computing. I have searched in Google, and checked the following links: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/539632/k20-with-high-utilization-but-no-compute-processes-/ and https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/464744/how-to-disable-enable-ecc-on-c2050-/
It seems the ECC is always a bad feature, so it is always set to be disabled. So what's the true meaning with the ECC? I'm just a commont user of that server, so I don't have the right to use the command nvidia-smi -e 0 to set ECC to be disabled. Is it possible for common user to set the ECC to be disabled?
What are the effects when we turn off the ECC? When should we turn it on? and when off?
