Eject Ubuntu server CD from remote Windows machine?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 19, 2010
How can I eject a Ubuntu server's CD/DVD that is shared over samba from a networked Windows machine?
I've Googled and searched and still don't have a solution.
My wife's new laptop does not have a CD/DVD drive. The only thing she needs one for is installing stuff so I shared our home server (Ubuntu server) cd/dvd drive. All works fine until we need to switch disks. At that point I have to ssh into the machine and eject the disk.
Is there anyway to eject the disk from her machine without installing ssh tools? I figure if I install ssh tools on her machine I should be able to do a ssh remote command to eject the disk, but it seems there should be a way to do it without going through that hassle.
Any thoughts appreciated.
Knoppix VS Ubuntu installation CD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 12, 2010
On my ms windows machine, the OS went out of order, and I wanted to salvage all my pictures, and decided to use a live CD and move some of my media files to my mp3 player... its storage is 8 gigabytes
I tried a latest Knoppix first, it did not provide me a nice GUI. Instead, it provide me with a humble looking, less than friendly, menu-based interface which I gave up on in about 3 minutes.
I was thinking for a minute, and when I tried to install Ubuntu in the past, one of the options I was provided when I ran the Ubuntu installation CD was "Try Ubuntu without installing it" and I thought it meant the Ubuntu installation CD could also be used a live CD.
And I put together an Ubuntu CD and attempted to use it as a live CD!
ah man it was beautiful. It even recognized the video card on my machine. I am never going back to knoppix. From now on, when someone ever mentions Knoppix to me, my response will be, "what is Knoppix?"
Install Windows 7 from Ubuntu without CD or USB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 1, 2011
Hello Ubuntu Forums, I was wondering how I could re-install Windows 7 from Ubuntu(or GRUB2).
Here is my current situation:
I was using GParted (I knew the risk), and I was removing a partition. And I accidentally removed my Windows Partition(It was mostly filled with junk.). Now I want to reinstall it from a ISO Backup on my Ubuntu Partition. The problem is that I have a 2GB usb (So I can't install from USB), And no blank DVD's. How would I go about installing from the iso? I'm using Natty.
By the way, is this the correct category to post this in?
Anyway, thanks for any help!

How do I run testdisk on Ubuntu live CD?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 6, 2013
I have searched and followed lots of tutorials and can't seem to run testdisk. I tried installing it with sudo apt-get install testdisk and I have made sure the services.list file doesn't have the universe repository reference commented out and even tried installing universe repository form the command line but I still get the cannot locate packed error: "E: Unable to locate package testdisk" when I try to install testdisk.
Basically what I would like to do is run testdisk from a live ubuntu cd. I am trying to recover files on a windows xp laptop.

"Permission Denied" when using Ubuntu live cd to recover thunderbird files.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 2, 2009
On a crashed notebook that formally ran a dual boot vista/ubuntu8.10 setup, I'm trying to use an Ubuntu 9.04 live cd to copy my mozilla-thunderbird files to a usb drive. That is really the only thing that I would like save before I reformat the whole drive and install "jaunty".
Unfortunately, when I attempt this with the file browser, I receive this message:
"The folder ".mozilla-thunderbird" could not be copied because you do not have permission to read it." (I assume it's because I'm logged in as Live Session User...?)
Is there some way to log in as an "owner" on a live CD to get permission?
Is there a way to perform this action though the terminal without permission?
is there another live cd I should be using for this?
...or am a way of track?
