File sharing between Ubuntu and Mac OSX
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 6, 2013
What's the best way of sharing files between ubuntu 12.04+ and OSX Mountain Lion?
I'm currently running Samba 3.6.3 and it works great between ubuntu and windows, and other linux distros but is absolutely dog slow on my mac.
The same samba server is also running a DAAP music server which is lightening fast when accessing music via the Mac, so the problem here is clearly with samba and/or apple's implementation of it.
So if samba is a no go, what alternatives do I have?

Windows 7 games in Virtual Box Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 14, 2011
Hi, I am thinking of getting a dist of linux, and have chrosen Ubuntu, because it looks awesome, but need some assistarnce. I am an extreme gamer, and am wondering if I can run my current windows 7 pre 64-bit in a program like virtualbox or VMWare on Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit, and still run games, LAN to windows machines, play online, and run programs like Steam from it. Also, would I have to install drivers in a virual machine running Windows, or just Ubuntu? And how well will games run compared to windows? Also, I run my internet connection through a PPPoE connection on my desktop on windows, will Ubuntu also support this feature?

Everything works fine in windows, and I never lag in any games, except Crysis and Crysis 2, but only minimal lag (40FPS)
VM Virtual Box Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows XP Home SP3
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 26, 2010
I am currently running WinXP Home w/SP3 only. I have downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 but has not been installed. I just came across "Virtual Box" in an article posted in Full Circle (issue #38). I kinda like the idea of being able to run different OSs without having to "reboot" to use one or the other. So, as a NEWBIE, I want to know how to go about installing Ubuntu on the same drive (if feasible), which Virtual Box to download and install, and basically .. what I need to do to get all this "stuff" working properly. I would suspect that .. with Win XP already installed that XP should (or mostly likely will be) the "HOST" OS with Ubuntu as the "GUEST". Or, I guess that .. after installing Ubuntu, that I can designate Ubuntu as HOST. I am assuming that a "dual boot" configuration will be in order. I guess ultimately I would like to use Ubuntu solely and eventually do away with Windows. I use my computer as an "END USER" prim

Read Only File System Error Ubuntu 11.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2012
This is a solved issue, and this thread is just to record how it was ..
I think it was after an update. I tried to compile a C program, and I had this error. Everything I did, basically triggered this error.
I've looked different fora, I searched a lot.. and each solution proposed involved changing something that would trigger this error. (Goes the same for changing permissions, etc)
, would trigger this error.
sudo command would trigger it, etc...
So, I tried to boot in recovery mode and chose "drop root" and I basically got the same error.
Then, from the grub menu .. I tried "Previous Linux versions" and chose the oldest release in recovery mode .. Then drop root.. Then :
The rest is basically just hitting "Y" to let it "repair" the file system.
Then rebooting and voilą
The rest is just updating and upgrading:
sudo apt-get update
Disk full due to large .xsessionerrors(deleted) open file applications
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 28, 2013
My root disk is full to the brim because of, I suspect, disk space locked up by a ballooning /home/user/.xsession-errors file. The ballooning is caused by open processes, i.e., PID from several different applications e.g., chromium being the largest culprit. I suspect this is the case becuase
lsof | grep deleted
returns lines like:
chromium- 27607 ktavabi 2w REG 8,1 1809493864448 108527952 /home/ktavabi/.xsession-errors (deleted)
chromium- 27762 ktavabi 2w REG 8,1 1809493864448 108527952 /home/ktavabi/.xsession-errors (deleted)
The situation is so bad that I can't even post the others as my terminal cannot find resources to scroll the entire output. The twist is that I have a cron job set to delete the file home/ktavabi/.xsession-errors` as per a suggested work around to the chaotic file size growth associated with it on UBUNTU distros. I am using a 64bit UBUNTU 12.04 machine with the following HD config:

[SOLVED] vsftpd anon download gets 550 failed to open file error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 15, 2013
Hi, I'm following the study guide for Michael Jang's new RHCSA practical exam questions book. The first bit is to set up vsftpd to share an anaconda ks file to one of the other VMs. It specifically mentions only using the default vsftpd config file without modification which should allow anonymous downloads by default. It wants you to create the file path /var/ftp/pub/os to store the file which I have done and obviously the ftp server is running as I can login. However, when I try and "get" the file, I get: "550 Failed to open file". SELinux is disabled but no joy. I can't find anything in the logs to indicate the problem. Directory permissions perhaps? I created the pub/os directories as root.
Any ideas to try?
Zip file "can not open file as archive"
- date: June 20, 2011
I'm not 100% sure if this is the right spot for it, but I'm having trouble unzipping files. I've downloaded a good few fonts from dafont.com, from different authors and with different browsers and I still get errors.
First I opened the .zip with Archive Manager
