Consider using Backup Exec for Linux. Not free, but that'd cover your management needs. What are the "Windows people" doing for a backup solution? Are you allowed to purchase the same kind of solution for the Linux side? BTW, logrotate can be used to rotate out your backup copies. There are a number of great discussions in stackexchange regarding the use ...

Virtual box needs an extension pack for USB 2.0. The extension packs are located at https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads My iPod was successfully recognized after I installed the extension pack. However, it still crashes when iTunes tries to talk to the iPod. Good luck!

Sorted. I downloaded Cygwin and eventually got it going. From there I used startx and ssh'd on from there.... works pretty well so far. I'm looking into getting Exceed 9 and trying that out too

You are getting a newline in the output. The problem is that this is a Unix newline, which Windows doesn't recognize. Unix encodes newlines as the LF (line feed) character, whereas Windows newlines consist of the two-character sequence CRLF (carriage return, line feed). To view the output correctly under Windows, use just about anything other than the type ...

It sounds like you chose not to install grub when the Ubuntu installation suggested it. If that what you did you will have to update it or reinstall ubuntu and select yes this time. If it's a fresh installation the second option is the easiest way to go in my opinion.

It appears you have no space between the command mount or its arguments. When you use mount, you are giving it two parameters. The first is what you want to mount, the second is where you want to mount it. As you have it written, you have one, long, path like that likely doesn't exist. To fix, add the spaces: mount /dev/sda2 /boot/efi If this was ...

Extract the installed windows and keep it safe somewhere as the size of exported machine is too small as compare to original, Even once you had installed windows yuo can take snapshot also of it and store it with snapshot

I would recommend you to use virtual machine. First, you get full Windows installation so you don't have to worry about compatibility issues. Second, you can backup you machine by just copying .vdi ot .vmdk or whatever format you'll use. Third, you can export your virtual machine and even upload to some cloud platforms like AWS and your machine won't ...

If you tick X11 forwarding in PuTTY it will try to display on your windows machine. VNC viewer on the Sun machine tries to open that display via X. I am not sure what you want to achieve, but if you want to start an X based program without it displaying on the Windows machine you want to look at xvnc. Once that is running you can (optionally) run vncviewer ...

This is not going to work, as the new install will not have the license key automatically available. It used to be possible to convert an existing hardware based windows installation to a VMware┬╣ or VirtualBox VM, but Windows licensing seems to have gotten more restrictive over time (with hardware change tests). This explains how to do things, but it ...

This is a classic case of stateless VDI. oVirt or RHEV both provide this functionality as well as a restricted user portal allowing the user to start a VM with the OS they need. When the VM starts, a snapshot is being taken. When the VM is stopped, the snapshot is discarded, and all VMs are back at golden image state

if you already have installed your linux (on a ext-filesystem) or you don't want to store your home-files within a ntfs-filesystem (restricted management of user rights; no filesystem-checks at start;...) you can use a filesystem-driver like Ext2Fsd for your windows-instance.

You can share a partition (NTFS, FAT formatted is the easiest) and share that between reboots. Much easier, and not requiring reboots of the machine is to install a VM (VirtualBox, VMware) on the windows machine, run Linux as a guest VM and share the directories on the Windows drive. You do need more memory for this setup (as Windows and Linux run at the ...

Make sure that you are picking the correct netstat for your platform. which netstat will give you path where it is executing it from.

I don't have a solution using rdesktop but I use a program called winexe on Linux to execute remote commands on Windows machines. You can get the application from the following URL or use your distribution's software repository system to install it. http://sourceforge.net/projects/winexe/ Here's an example of the usage: winexe -A credentials.cfg ...

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 ...

Sounds like you've got access to the server using putty (going over ssh). That gets you logged in. After that just start vim, paste in the content as you would have done in noMachine (paste in putty is just right-click - at least for me). Then save the file from within vim. I'm not sure if I'm missing a complication of your setup since this sounds very ...

The issue I was having was caused by a windows installation without a boot loader. When attempting to fix this using Windows Recovery, the Windows installation could not be found because I had a separate hard drive with a Linux installation running in the system. When I unplugged this Linux HDD leaving just the windows HDD plugged in, the recovery could ...

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 ...

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.

Just install the Mint CD and boot it, then select Install Linux Mint from the desktop. After selecting language and confirmation that you have enough drive space available and an Internet connection you will get to the "Installation type" screen. There select 'Something else', as the default (Install Linux Mint alongside Windows 7) will shrink your Windows ...

In order to dual boot windows and linux you must install Windows first. Its something about Windows not wanting to play nice with other OS's, I don't exactly know why. Once you have Windows 7 installed try installing linux normally, but when you get to partitions you will want to designate a section of your hard drive to Linux only. There are plenty of ...

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.

Why not change the BOIS device boot order? Change your first HDD as first option Or another option is you can install EasyBCD in your Windows 7, and order the boot option a well.

The Linux boot manager should offer you to boot Windows. So there may be a boot loader misconfiguration. Alternatively UEFI should allow you to boot all the configured OSes directly.

Being physically disabled, I understand how you feel. As such, I'm posting the info I find on your device: VendorID = 0b06 = Athena / Advantage x7500 / Dopod U1000 / T-Mobile AMEO ProductID = a513 = ?? a513 doesn't exist in any USB Database I could find, but I did find this post over at Reddit. I tend to agree that buying a newer supported product would ...

I believe that Grub will automatically detect the second drive. Boot into Xubuntu and run sudo update-grub.

everything you install in wine is installed in the .wine folder in your home folder, so changing the permission of this folder and making a symlink from the second user's .wine folder to the shared .wine folder should do the trick. try this code, let me know if it works, I didn't test it myself yet and it could be it needs some adjusting. chown -R ...
