[SOLVED] Cannot resize VirtualBox .vdi file when created from physical disk
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 6, 2013
I am creating a disk for a Windows 7 VM on a Linux (CentOS 6.3) host.
If I create a .vdi file in VirtualBox (Linux version 4.2.6) and attach it to my Windows 7 VM, I can format it as NTFS, mount, and use the disk fine.
Then I can shut down the vm and use
Creating a Virtual Machine from a physical Disk
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I recently added a 4th hard disk to my computer installed Windows 8 Pro with Microsoft development tools, all went fine, I'm happy.
I have in my computer another disk with Windows 7 full of Embarcadero/CodeGerar/Borland tools, i.e. Delphi, which I would prefer not to install in my newly installed OS.
When I work on Delphi stuff I boot to that Win 7 disk and work there, when I work on Visual Studio I boot to the W8 disk and work there.
But I rather prefer to always boot to Windows 8, and open a Virtual Machine with the Delphi stuff to work temporary (not surprisingly I work more in VS than in Delphi these days).
I already use VirtualBox to run an eval of Windows Server 2008, the processor of my computer couldn't support the new Hyper thingy from microsoft, but I'm very happy with the product, I don't miss Microsoft's virtual machine, at all.
So I wonder if I can access that physical disk from within a Virtual Machine, or at least a tool that creates a Virtual HD based on a physical
12.04 Removing all games from default installation
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 26, 2013
I know this has been raised/answered several times before, but the solutions I've found & tried have not worked for me completly.
I have Gnome panel and I can't work out how to remove:-
!. Applications > Games > "Aisleriot Solitaire"
2. The parent "Games" menu item itself.
All the other games have been deleted.
Right click on Applications allows editing the entries but not the removal of the "menu item" itself.
Ubunutu 11.10 grub2 can boot but error hd0 no disk from bootable usb config help
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 5, 2012
This is my second post here, so let me know if I do/say anything un-etiquette like.
I installed feisty the other day to a USB but have since downloaded and installed 11.10 thanks to Jefro here on LQ.
It took three installs to finally get it working(ish), this I think was down to my own point-click-quickly-get-it-done-today attitude.
Ok, so the issue I currently have is I installed 11.10 on my 8gb USB pen with a ext2 and a 390mb+/- swap, When I installed I unplugged all my HDD's so I could be sure nothing would be affected.
When I boot up with only the USB pen in I get GRUB and click normal boot. But it gives "Error hd0 no disc" Press any key to continue... Continues to boot.
Now I don't like to waste anyone's time so I have exhausted my searches, there's a number of people with this issue.
It may be my BIOS or simple issue with config. As it does boot I guess there's got to be a way of circumventing the error??
More importantly though when I plug my usual int

[Script] Mount Wubi Disk from Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 12, 2009
Just posting this for people who are converting their wubi install to a dedicated partition with LVPM. Once done you may want to access your old setup in the event you modify something or whatever.
In the following examples you may need to edit some of the paths to match your system setup. The following scripts assume your Windows partition is on /dev/sda1.
Make a new text file:
sudo mkdir -p /media/WindowsXP
echo "Mounting NTFS Partition"
sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /media/WindowsXP
sudo mkdir -p /media/root.disk
echo "Mounting Wubi Disk"
sudo mount -o loop /media/WindowsXP/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /media/root.disk
echo "Done :)"
gksu nautilus /media/root.disk
exit 0 &
Save this as mountwubi.sh. Right click this new file, select Permissions tab and put a tick in the Execute box.
Create another text file:
echo "Unmounting Wubi Disk"
sudo umount /media/root.disk
howto search installed files from packaged via apt?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 8, 2008
I am looking for a terminal method for searching a package's installed files. I do this in synaptic by searching for the installed package, clicking properties, and going to "installed files". This takes a long time and lists all the files, when I may only want to look for, as an example, the readme file included in the package.
thanks if you can help.
Connect to Server from Desktop via SSH not working
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 22, 2012
When I go to use Connect to Server with SSH selected it will not connect to the remote machine within my LAN (Machine 1 to machine2).
The IP address is definitely correct, no firewall is engaged on either machine. I can connect via ssh by using terminal on machine 1 to machine 2 and vice versa.
Machine 2 can login into machine 1 via Connect to Server succesfully.
Any thoughts would be appreciated on how to rectifiy this.
Problems unlocking LUKS encrypted LVM via SSH

I'm trying to unlock a LUKS encrypted LVM, on which the system resides, via SSH. I am following instructions found in the file "/usr/share/doc/cryptsetup/README.remote.gz" but I'm not having any success.
unlocking rootfs via ssh login in initramfs
You can unlock your rootfs on bootup from remote, using ssh to log in to the
booting system while it's running with the initramfs mounted.
For remote unlocking to work, the following packages have to be installed
before building the initramfs: dropbear busybox
The file /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf holds the configuration options
used when building the initramfs. It should contain BUSYBOX=y (this is set as
the default when the busybox package is installed) to have busybox installed
into the initramfs, and should not contain DROPBEAR=n, which would disable
installation of dropbear to initramfs. If set to DROPBEAR=y, dropbear will
beinstalled in any case; i
