os-prober (used by update-grub) requires the following kernel features to detect the Windows 8 boot loader. Device Drivers -> Multiple devices driver support (RAID and LVM) (CONFIG_MD) -> Device mapper support (CONFIG_BLK_DEV_DM) File Systems -> FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) support (CONFIG_FUSE_FS) DOS/FAT/NT Filesystems -> NTFS file system support ...

The problem with the script is that when copying a file from another system like Windows, it adds a newline \n and a carriage return \r\n. For more about line feeds see newline entry on wikipedia. To demonstrate the issue I've uploaded short fragment here which explains how to solve the problem. In short: Use tr to remove those weird line endings tr -d ...

1) Download and install Samba: apt-get install samba samba-common 2) Backup samba.conf: cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.bak 3) Edit samba.conf: nano /etc/samba/smb.conf Replace all with and edit it to your wishes: [global] workgroup = arbeitsgruppe server string = %h server (Samba %v) log file = ...

Ah, the famous conundrum "which Linux distro to install". The best thing would be to install the same distro the friends of your friend use, so he can get help when he needs. If he knows nobody using Linux around him, the simplest and user-friendlier distro is probably Ubuntu. It has a large user base and good support.

As @Celeo shared I think you chances are small. What you should have done before installation are two things :- a. Make a backup of the content on the D drive before doing that. b. Make D partition smaller and then make E which is free, blank and has nothing. Then when you install choose E to install Ubuntu or whichever GNU/Linux distribution you want to ...

VirtualBox shared folders are still not suppported on FreeBSD. A FreeBSD ports committer has confirmed this on the FreeBSD mailing lists as of (2014-06-24): Shared Folders for FreeBSD guests are not supported yet [...] There is some draft code and a kernel module for it but it's not working yet. If you want to follow the state of the port, please ...

Q#1: I see many connections like when I use netstat, are they all to the internet? No not all connections listed in the output of netstat are to the internet. Many of these so-called connections are to files that are in use on your system. These are special files, one of which, is called a socket. A socket file allows an application to "talk" to ...

I would encourage you not to do this. Either host a SVN server on Windows or on Linux and access the server using svn+ssh protocol. Do not try and develop some kludged method for accessing your SVN repositories. There are a number of issues you're going to run into that are SVN and SQLite related that you'll run into that require various mounting options ...

The obvious answer is this is happening because grub can not find the windows boot loader. The less obvious answer is because the grub configuration file does not properly specify the root for the windows bootloader. The default operation seems to leave that line out. While it would be somewhat complicated to fix the default Windows Bootloader, the ...

A WUBI setup is... Easier to install (on older systems - UEFI users sometimes have issues) Doesn't require a new bootloader (which Windows can munch) Doesn't require repartitioning your Windows drives to make room Is slower than native because it's one step removed from hardware Can still get munched by Windows. Windows will ultimately do whatever Windows ...

I've never tried with these specific RAID technologies but it's been my experience that it's best to operate at the filesystem level when attempting to migrate data from one physical implementation of RAID to another. What do I mean by this? I mean that I would get another set of disks and move my content from the 1st RAID to a intermediate location (some ...

This will not work as it unlikely that your hosts mapped in filesystem (i.e. Windows C: drive, so most likely NTFS) supports the full range of permission bits that Linux git expects. In a similar situation I have exported a Linux directory via Samba and used that from Windows and Linux without problems. This however has the disadvantage that you cannot ...

Linux doesn't have an exact equivalent of “bypass traverse checking”. It uses other means to achieve the same policies. Traditionally, a user's home directory is publicly readable. Users can create subdirectories for private files, and make them private. A nice property of Unix permissions (including modern ACL schemes) is that if any component of a path is ...

To some extent: In the Unix permission model, the r bit on a directory allows listing its content, and the x bits allows getting a handle to the directory. A handle allows you to reference files and directories in that directory if you know their name, and using them is subject to the permissions on the inode of that object. So for the scenario you ...

It turns out that I needed to run the following: sudo update-grub This updated my /boot/grub/grub.cfg file and got rid of the windows 7 option.

I can't say that my own 19 year experience of running Linux supports your assertion that windows boots more stably, but here are some things that will effect what you are seeing: Filesystem caching Linux uses caching on all filesystems unless told otherwise. This improves speed and response times for disk reads and writes by userspace programs, as they ...

You can use X forwarding on Windows as well; all you need is an X server (such as Xming) and an SSH client (such as PuTTY). Xming includes documentation explaining how to go about things; basically, you enable X forwarding in PuTTY, start the X server on your Windows machine, SSH to the Linux machine and run your Java application. You might find that rather ...

I might unfortunately decide to use Windows as the host operating system so that my non-Unixy colleagues would not be at a disadvantage - being able to leverage their existing knowledge - and to use the Windows application as needed without waiting for the Linux operations to cease. I would install Linux (RHEL probably, given the choices) in a virtual ...

As I commented, the (NTFS) file system was dirty, as the error message was saying. So checking it (on Windows) with a chkdsk command (or the Windows equivalent of fsck) -to clean it- then rebooting Linux could be enough. If you absolutely need Windows with some data shared with Linux, you could consider using an Ext4 (or Ext3) file system (shared with ...

Firstly you shoud check if it hits the storage performance limit on either Windows or Ubuntu. If E: on Windows is a USB attached drive or memory card, 8MB/s is likely possible. Otherwise SSH encryption might be bottleneck. Try and see with lightweight cipher like arcfour. scp -o Cipher=arcfour -rv /cygdrive/e/plex caleb@192.168.1.126:/home/caleb/Desktop ...

You need to make sure that "/mount/point/I/want" and all the files and subdirectories have world readable permissions. Also, if you are not using a user/pass for the Windows machines to authenticate via SMB, then you will need to allow guest access to your share. Quick and dirty (assuming that you don't have any permissions that must remain as they are ...

To anyone who installed on IDE and now wishes to switch to virtIO: A convenient way to do it is to create a secondary (non-boot) virtIO disk, boot the VM -- at which point Windows will ask for the virtIO drivers, which it somehow refuses to install otherwise -- and subsequently switch the boot partition to virtIO.

Your problem is that you don't have any swap space. Operating systems require a swap space so that they are able to free up ram space and store it on the hard drive. What you are going to need to do is reformat your hard drive. Red Hat has a suggest swap size chart here. Load up the arch live cd and repartition and swapon /dev/sdaX. If you need a ...

Here are some points which may help you a bit to diagnose the problem: Run free command to see memory usage Run top and then hit M to sort by memory usage or P to sort by CPU usage to see which program uses your resources Be sure that at /etc/fstab is a line to mount swap - you see swap usage after free look at /var/log/messages or in case you are using ...

If I understand what you are asking correctly then what you want is inside the smb.conf located here: /etc/samba/smb.conf Add these options to the [global] section: force user = rolf force group = coders

Use This tool Instead: LinuxLiveCreator. I've Found it to be more reliable. After doing so, reboot. If you still receive Windows7, you need to change the boot order in your BIOS to include USB devices.

I think that ntfsclone might be really helpfull here. As mentioned in the manuall: "...ntfsclone can be useful to make backups, an exact snapshot of an NTFS filesystem and restore it later on..." ntfsclone is part of the ntfs-3g package.

When gvim starts, it sources a file called mswin.vim via the _vimrc file. In the mswin.vim file the keys are remapped. You can undo this two ways. One is edit the mswin.vim file and remove the mapping (not recommended). A second easier potentially less invasive way is to edit the _vimrc file. 1. Start gvim as Administrator. 2. Click ...

Since you already do mention PuTTY, you already have all you need to find out how to solve the problem. You have several options. One is using an SSH client (e.g. PuTTY) to connect to the server, running: $ cat > path/to/resulting/file <<EOD ... your pasted text goes here ... EOD or just using a SCP client to just copy the file there. With pscp ...

You can't tell what each partition is for from /proc/partitions, that only tells you the partition numbers and their sizes. Given the numbering, with a one-sector sda3 and no partition numbered 4, this is an MBR-type partition table where sda3 is an extended partition; since Windows needs to boot from a primary partition, the Windows partition has to be ...
