This is more of a windows question than an unix one, but heres how you can recover the windows bootloader: Boot into a Windows 7 install or recovery disk. You should be able to find a recovery iso online or on the Microsoft website. Once in, open up a command prompt and run the following: bootrec.exe /fixmbr This will reinstall the Windows bootloader, and ...

Windows can't read the Linux filesystem. However Linux can read the Windows filesystem. So if you have your /media/Data/Music on a Windows file system you can have access to that space (the same files) on both Windows and Linux. However, if it's on a Linux filesystem you can only have access to it from Linux. Making a Windows Filesystem (NTFS) would be ...

There isn't a single command/method that I've seen that will give you this easily, but rather you'll have to create this linkage yourself using a variety of components. For starters, on Linux you can have the system automount the NTFS partition via the /etc/fstab file anytime that it boots. /dev/sda2 /mnt/somedir ntfs-3g permissions,locale=en_US.utf8 ...

have a look here: http://www.spice-space.org/download.html There is a link to the windows QXL driver, as well as guest tools installer. However, I would recommend enabling RDP on the client and connecting with rdesktop, the performance will be much better.

If you want to have/keep hibernation and also can access to hibernate flaged partition by Windows OS I have to say, you can not. Since if you want to keep hibernate on your Windows OS then you can not access them on the Mint 17 OR if you want to access them(I mean NTFS partition that flaged as hibernate) I can say, "yes" you can but then you lost the ...

While I agree with what slm has said - do not do that, SVN was built so that you do not have to share file systems - you can try to avoid such problems with the mount option nobrl. See the Samba manpages for more information about the mount option.

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 ...

You can mount the ISO on Windows (e.g. DAEMON Tools, and seems that Windows 8.1 has a native ISO mounting function), but even then it's useless, as the Linux/UNIX binary will not run on Windows - except, of course, if you install Linux in a virtual machine.

First off, if the software is built for Unix then it won't run on Windows. Second, it sounds like you're trying to mount the ISO in Windows. There are several programs that will do that. Virtual Clone Drive is the first thing that came up when searching. All of that doesn't count for a hill of beans unless you know what an ISO is. To be basic, an ISO is ...

I offer this "Answer" as a supportive post AND as additional information on a point. The Andreas Reiff answer with 4-step details worked very well for my situation and I learned/found an interesting "oh, by the way". My situation was an attempt to TRIPLE-BOOT CentOS 7, Windows Server 2012, and Windows7. I thought I would be smart and add two separate ...

So I just now was able to successfully make my laptop a dual boot. The way I got rid of the grub rescue prompt was actually by changing my boot mode from Legacy Mode to UEFI. I did this by booting into the bios menu when I turned on my computer by pressing f2 (for me). I then scrolled over to Boot and switched this under the Boot Mode option. This got ...

If grub boots then so should your usb stick. Is there a boot menu in your bios(try pressing F12, F1, ESC, DEL or some other key when you power on your pc); if there is, insert your usb and try finding it in the menu. If you cannot find it try setting bios to legacy mode. If that doesn't work try one of these commands in grub rescue. For Ubuntu 14.04.1: ...

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 ...

You haven't given much information to go on. You could try Wireshark or iptables (depending upon your configuration).

The easy way to do things through two layers of SSH is to hide the intermediate layer. Set up a ProxyCommand so that you can directly run ssh computer_name from the original client. Set up public key authentication and activate agent forwarding (ForwardAgent yes in ~/.ssh/config), so that you don't need to provide credentials explicitly to the intermediate ...

Set up a port a local port forward. For OpenSSH it would mean: $ ssh login@host -L 2222:computer_name:22 which causes any connectionns to port 2222 on localhost be forwarded to port 22 on computer_name via - and that is important here - host. Then follow $ scp -P 2222 computer_name_user@localhost:remote local Obviously this also allows you to connect ...

It's not only acceptable, but also preferable to have them have /bin/false as a login shell, else someone could actually long onto the system and get shell access. Remember to pass -s /bin/false to useradd to set the login shell to /bin/false

Check the UEFI entry on the openSUSE wiki, and for example openSUSE Forums for instructions how to install the bootloader shim. Also see the related SO post. Since you are not interested in dual booting, you might also want look for a way to add more keys to the UEFI on your computer, so that you can get rid of the Microsoft bootloader entirely. Another ...

It seems that, on some computers, the UEFI (which I assume you have, based on that behavior) or the shipped Windows 8 installation, is configured in a way that does not permit you to install anything next to or instead of Windows 8, and, if you managed to wipe out Windows 8, just starts off a recovery partition. The solution, according to this german forum ...

A Linux virtual machine won't help you here. The VM software runs as an application under Windows. When you try to delete the file, from Windows's point of view, this is the VM application trying to delete the file. It won't succeed any better than other programs. You may have more success if you boot your system under Linux and mount the filesystem. Or ...

Not sure why this is posted here since your problem is with a a native windows system. I would recommend opening a command prompt and running CHKDSK /F then reboot your PC. This will check for problems on your Windows disk. I would highly recommend against trying to delete something through virtualbox if you cannot get rid of it through Windows itself. You ...

try a simple rm -r old_Cache_000 to check whether the only problem in deleting the directory is because it is non-empty. As the root user you have enough permissions to perform this operation.

Python 3.4 with PyQt 5 and of course Qt5 have been great for me, especially with Qt Designer. All of these are cross-platform and work on Linux. What you have said is possible with modules such as pickle. If you don't want to download anything extra for Python tkinter is also available. As for C++ you can easily use Qt5 as well.
