Ubuntu, VMware, and OpenGL
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 8, 2007
Okay here is my problem; I have a Windows XP VM running in VMware on a Ubuntu server which I want to run an application(read game) that requires OpenGL. Even though I have an OpenGL Nvidia card on the server, the emulated video that VMware presents to the Virtual Machines is not OpenGL compliant. Does anyone know if it is possible to run OpenGL apps on a VM?
Ubuntu: VMware not finding ethernet device
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 24, 2005
I'm using vmware in Ubuntu 5.04 (The Hoary Hedgehog) and after going through a lot of trouble to get it working, I can't get it to find my network/ethernet adapter. When I boot my XP Pro vm it says "Could not open /dev/vmnet0: No such file or directory Virtual device Ethernet0 will start disconnected". I can't seem to find anything on this. I have Vmware workstation set on bridged network. Please help!
QEMU running on Ubuntu vmware guest cannot find /dev/kvm
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2012
I've installed QEMU (qemu-kvm-0.12.3) on my VMWare guest 'Ubuntu 10.04LTS' system, which all runs on a physical SONY VAIO x86-64 Intel laptop. Although not relevant, the VMWare host system is Windows 7.
When I execute 'qemu linux-0.2.img', the output is
open /dev/kvm: No such file or directory
Could not initialize KVM, will disable KVM support
I've confirmed that /dev/kvm doesn't exist.
I've confirmed that hardware virtualization is enabled in my VAIO BIOS.
Other posts have indicated I should do a 'modprobe kvm-intel'. When I do this, I get the following error message =>
FATAL: Error inserting kvm_intel (/lib/modules/2.6.32-38-generic/kernel/arch/x86/kvm/kvm-intel.ko): Operation not supported
The output from 'lsmod | grep kvm' is the single line

The output from command 'cat /proc/cpuinfo' is

Ubuntu VMware and Linux Commands

I have installed Ubuntu in a VMware player and Nautilus [Gnome] as my GUI. I will read all the posts to learn Linux as much as I can. My goal is to be as familiar with Linux as I am with Microsoft products.

Need help installing Snort on Ubuntu (vmware)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 2, 2011
I spent quite a while trying to do something I thought would be simple...install Snort on Ubuntu 10.04. Here's what I did so far:
1. "cd /usr/src"
2. sudo wget http://www.snort.org/dl/snort-curren...22.214.171.124.tar.gz -O snort-126.96.36.199.tar.gz
3. tar xzvf snort-188.8.131.52.tar.gz (this uncompressed and created a snort-184.108.40.206 folder.
4. installed libpcap0.8-dev & libpcre3-dev
5. cd snort-220.127.116.11
6. sudo ./configure
- this came back with:
ERROR! Libpcap library/headers (libpcap.a (or .so)/pcap.h)
not found, go get it from http://www.tcpdump.org
or use the --with-libpcap-* options, if you have it installed
in unusual place. Also check if your libpcap depends on another
shared library that may be installed in an unusual place
I thought I already have libpcap installed though? When I do a "apt-cache policy libpcap0.8-dev" it comes back with:

Ubuntu, VMWare, Windows, Quickbooks. Work? Stable?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 1, 2014
I've been running a separate Windows machine just to host Quickbooks for a while now. I'd like to see if it will work on VMWare/Windows with Ubuntu. Does anybody know if this will work? If so can I expect rock solid stability? I currently run Centos 6.5 to host a file, email, web server. I'd like to switch to Ubuntu to host those + the VMWare Windows. I'm wondering if it will work and be stable.

Running Ubuntu 11 and WIndows 7 through VMWare vs doing a dual boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 22, 2011
I just bought a nice workstation with a quad core i7 Sandy Bridge chip set and a pretty nice NVidia GPU. I am going to be doing some serious coding in Linux, but I am still attached to a few programs I use in Windows. I have a legal copy of Winodws 7, and was going to do a dual boot with Ubuntu 11 and WIn 7, but was warned about issues that can cause mayhem with dual boots and was advised to have an Ubuntu machine that runs Win 7 through VMWare. I want to make sure this is the right decision.
First can anyone describe the problems that a dual boot might cause?
I may be setting up a pretty complex software environment and don't want to have to start over if something goes wrong.
Second what are the limitations of running WIndows through VMWare?
I am concerned with performance especially for my Ubuntu programming,
but with Windows somewhat too since I use some imaging apps.
I have a pretty fast computer so I could live with my WIndows imaging apps taking some performance hit, but does
Virtualbox, VMware, Ubuntu, XP and performance
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 30, 2011
I hesitate to raise this delicate matter in this forum, but I have to.
For reasons I cannot change (i.e. Those Who Hand Me My Paycheck) I simply have to run some heavy Windows apps. Except I run Ubuntu and I'm not about to replace it with Windows. I have tried to run said apps in Wine, and while some of them mostly work, Wine doesn't quite cut it. Nor will any other Linux alternatives be sufficient in this case. I simply have to be pragmatic, and face the fact that due to obligations to my employers and customers, I will have to live with running Windows. However I also need Linux in order to simply Get Things Done (not to mention remain sane) at the end of the day. Obviously some sort of virtualization to support multiple OS environments is in order.
I have tried running XP (which is sufficient) in a Virtualbox, and that does work. However, performance leaves a lot to be desired: on Linux I see a maxed out CPU load, while in the virtual XP environment things ru
