*Ubuntu Linux VDI images download (for VirtualBox)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 12, 2007
At http://download.helpdesklive.info/ you can find installed VDI images ready to run for easy tests in VirtualBox.
I don't know if it is a good idea to offer installed images.
Also i think is a good idea to upload Alfa & Beta releases to can be easily to test, so in a short time all i386 Gutsy Herd 2 will be uploaded .
Pleas let us know if is a good idea to let this page up or not.
(sorry for ads... but the bandwidth and space have costs )

location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 2, 2008
- Sun xVM Virtual Box 1.6.4

According to following HOW-TOs I have adapted document instructions to work under Ubuntu 8.04:

2. Untar file:
tar -xvzf zerofree-1.0.1.tgz

sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install e2fslibs-dev
5. Compile c-code:
6. Copy executible file to /root dir:
sudo cp zerofree /root
6. Start runlevel 1:
sudo telinit 1
7. Select "root" from Recovery menu.
8. Check to see disk names:
9. From previous command in left corner there are /dev/... devices in my case /dev/sda1. M
How to mount a .vdi virtual hard drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 2, 2013
I have just been wondering if you can mount a vdi file. If there is no way to do it in Linux itself, if anyone knows any open source mounter that would be great.
The only reason I want to be able to mount the virtual hard drive so I can see the filing system. sometimes I would like to pull a file without booting the machine.
browse virtualbox .vdi file contents?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 23, 2012
I'm running standard ubuntu 12.04 with virtualbox installed and a vm running Windoze XP Pro. Is there a *nix mechanism to allow the host to open and browse/access the vm's .vdi file? Searches on many forums as well as google provide some (older) ideas none of which seem to work.
The reason is that I need to rename one of the startup files in the Windoze instance PRIOR to it starting.
Just wondering if anyone has had success with this?
Problems with Ulteo Virtual Desktop
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 10, 2012
Sorry, if this thread is not at the right place in the forum.
I have the following problem.
I installed Ulteo Virtual Desktops in a Vmware environment and Iím able to reach the admin area in the virtual desktop via Firefox Browser to create new users and to add new applications. So far no problems, but if I try to log in with a normal user, the application programs are shown grey and canít be opened and Ulteo logs out automatically after a short period of time (less than half a minute).
How can I solve that problem?
Thanks in advance for good solution hints.

Recently I downloaded ArchLinux VDI files from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/virt...ux/2011.08.19/
The username is 'archuser' but I don't know the password.
Does someone either know it or can I contact the VDI creator?
LXer: DistroWatch Weekly: new openSUSE and Ulteo releases, Linux for PS3, KANOTIX split
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 5, 2006
Published at LXer:
Welcome to this year's 49th issue of DistroWatch Weekly! It's openSUSE week, as one of the oldest and most popular Linux distributions on the market makes a brand new release on Thursday. Will the project's association with Novell (and, indirectly, Microsoft) hurt the download figures? We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, the much awaited public release from Ga√ęl Duval's Ulteo is about to hit the download mirrors - expect the live CD image later this week. Also in the news: interest in running Linux on Sony PlayStation 3 intensifies, KANOTIX is rocked by resignation of a co-developer, and Ubuntu developers react on the project's decision to include proprietary graphics driver in Feisty. Finally, we are pleased to announce that the recipient of DistroWatch's November 2006 donation is the digiKam project. Happy reading!
