I recommend to create a dedicated user for that share and specify it in force user. Create a user (shareuser for example) and set the owner of everything in the share folder to that user: adduser --system shareuser chown -R shareuser /path/to/share Then add force user and permission mask settings in smb.conf: [myshare] path = /path/to/share writeable = ...

There is actually more than one way to use the card: either through USB host mapping or serial port mapping. The former fails and makes the virtual machine crash in a BSOD. The latter seems to work. So I added /dev/ttyACM0 as a serial port of type device to the virtual machine, which was consequently mapped as COM1 (may vary if serial ports are already ...

For a Perl solution, you could use the Win32::Filenames module for this. http://search.cpan.org/~bch/Win32-Filenames-0.01/lib/Win32/Filenames.pm EDIT: A simple program using this module: #!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use Win32::Filenames qw(validate sanitize); while ( my $filename = shift ) { printf( "checking filename [%s]\t", ...

I would highly recommend YUMI if you are making this on windows, its a subset of pendrive tho i found it far more straight forward and much easier to load multiple bootable isos onto link:http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/ also super easy to edit the grub menu if you are into that sort of thing.

I finally found the best method for me to start Kali without reinstalling Grub to my HDD. For this i used unetbootin and SuperGrub(Download here) First install unetbootin: sudo apt-get install unetbootin Then rename the supergrub .iso to .img (using .iso gave me booterrors) and start unetbootin. In unetbootin select the floppy method and load the ...

Well, yes, this question gets asked a lot and people will recommend this or that distribution and they all have reasons to suggest a certain choice. What I'd say, though, is that you should probably consider it from another point of view. Ask yourself (or your friend) what exactly you are looking for. If that thing is maximum ease of use then you have a very ...

Linux Mint is another good choice. It's rank No.1 on http://distrowatch.com/. Personally, it's friendly with Windows users more than Ubuntu.

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.

I you have to pass the source folder before you state the -av -e switch: $ rsync /cygdrive/c/users/Owner/Pictures/ -av -e ssh blah@192.168.1.10:/var/files/ImageSync/

Shadowing files on a directory tree is what union mounts are all about. Linux offers several union filesystems; unfortunately, some are badly documented or unmaintained. For your use case, a FUSE-based solution that doesn't require privileges seems best. The most promising candidate would be unionfs-fuse. unionfs-fuse ...

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 don't see in your post that you have tried creating a new partition in the available space - via Fedora's installer. You may want to try that.

You may not be running Ubuntu, but here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI the Ubuntu folks describe how to install using EFI. What you need is to create a bootable USB stick for EFI with UNetBootin and then copy the install iso onto it. Also you might need to disable Secureboot in your EFI Configuration. A word on Windows on just a 80GB partition: It ...

Windows line endings consist of the two-character sequence CR, LF. CR is the carriage return character, sometimes represented as \r, \015, ^M, etc. A Unix line ending is just the LF character. A way to convert Windows line endings to Unix line endings using only standard utilities present on all Unix variants is to use the tr utility. tr -d '\r' ...

Yes, you can do that with CloneZilla as I have tried it before. Single image to Multiple machine simultaneously (Multicast) is one of the most wanted feature. That's why you found many posts talking about it. As you can see its feature on the official site: clonezilla.org. The image file can be on local disk, ssh server, samba server, NFS server or ...

The address 10.0.2.15 is a internal address for your VM which can not be reached from the Host OS because of the NAT mode. You need to change your network adapter to use bridged mode or host-only-adapter. In bridged mode the guest will try to get an address in the host network and using host-only-adapter you will create an interface on the host OS, ...

If the program runs on PlayOnLinux well and you are satisfied with that, it will most probably be faster than in a VM. This would be my first preference. You can check applications' combatibility at WineHQ. Running windows programs in a Virtual Machine (like with VirtualBox or KVM or VMware) is quite convenient, especially for non 3D-games. However, ...

I see in my crystal ball that you're editing the file on a Windows machine. Windows and Linux have different ways of representing line breaks. On Linux (like any unix system), a line consists of a series of characters which ends with a line feed (LF = \n = Ctrl+J) character. On Windows, lines are separated by a two-character sequence: carriage return, then ...

So I ended up installing LILO as bootloader which works just fine. It kinda confirms the theory that there might be something wrong with the newer versions of GRUB. Here are the install instructions: First remove GRUB bootloader: sudo pacman -Rsn grub For installing packages that are not listed in the arch repo by default we need development tools: ...
