In the end, I wound up moving my Docker image to an Ubuntu laptop I had sitting around. Now my TFTP server works perfectly with zero modification, so the issue was almost certainly something to do with either Virtualbox, Windows or boot2docker (though I'm not sure about the last one). I'll post my question on a more relevant stackexchange (now that I know ...

Since you're on Ubuntu, you can also use the Startup Disk Creator. It's a bit easier to use than dd, IMHO.

Just copying the files is not enough because you will miss the bootloader. You should dd the image to the usb stick: dd if=kali.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M; sync to start it. Be aware, that this will delete all data on the stick and the partition scheme will not be optimal.

The article you've linked basically says that new hardware that ships with Windows 10 will no longer need to provide a way to turn off Secure Boot. In particular: Nothing will change for existing hardware. This rule is only for new hardware. Windows 10 itself can work either way. Microsoft is saying that manufacturers may force Secure Boot to be ...

Disk management can only convert a blank disk with all partitions deleted to GPT disk. You can use another software like AOMEI Partition Assistant to convert MBR disk to GPT disk. There also is way to create a separate disk just to make it GPT, but I am not sure if it will allow you to install Fedora 22. You can create a virtual hard disk with disk ...

The speed of network links is measured in megabits per second, not megabyte per second. A “100 Mb/s” network (the b should be lowercase) can transmit 100 megabits per second. The next speed up is 10 times as fast and called “1 Gb/s” or “gigabit”. The raw network speed is faster than the application speed, because there's some overhead for packet headers. ...

Your actual speed is 8MB/s x 8 bits per byte= 64 Mb/s (megabits per second). That's about 64% of the theoretical maximum. With OS overheads, TCP/IP ACKs, etc. I'm not too surprised. The earlier tips may help you push that up a bit, but you're never going to get above ~12 MB/s unless you go to gigabit Ethernet.

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 ...

Sure you can shrink the partition size of preinstalled windows and install linux debian or ubuntu as your wish side by side with the windows. Grub bootloader will help you to boot OS properly. For some persons, installing VM is NOT THE answer, it is depend on the Need. I personally have been using linux for about 8 years, 6 years on gentoo and last two years ...

Why not put your Linux machine in a VM. I personally run an iMac with 32GB of RAM, VirtualBox and run Windows 7, Windows 10, Oracle Linux and Sun Solaris. All work flawlessly.

Yes. You just need to adjust the windows partition to make some empty room for your linux install. You can adjust the partitions within windows or with a live disk. Whenever you monkey around with partitions you run the risk of breaking something but I have had success doing what you are trying.

http://coteyr.net/articles/3-Moving-to-Open-Source Fair warning it's my own site. But the core of the article (which is quite old), take it slow, make a complete list of what you use and try to migrate to it one at a time. Give your self time and expect a productivity drop. As for running specific software, you will have to do your own research. Some ...

For a beginner i would recommend using ubuntu 15, it is very similar to windows with it's interface and design, and has lots of resources available online for help. Most linux distros are anyways free, so you can try more than 1 if you wish (By using a bootable USB). You can use java,arduino software, itnues and matlab on linux, It is also possible to use ...

Have you setup the samba username and password sudo smbpasswd -a sambauser here username might be your system(Linux) username, ie. sambauser is my linux user, set the permission of shared folder to sambauser chown -R sambauser:root /media/ssd and restart your SMB server service smbd restart and then from window machine access your shared folder ...

Try checking "Allow unmapped user Unix access". This may change things if the Windows side doesn't know about the osmc account. See https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh509017%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

Post 80 is typically closed by default on OSX. When you used Safari on your Mac and hit the IIS web browser, OSX was using the loop back interface. Try to connect to port 80 on another box using something like the following: nc -z -w1 192.168.x.x 80 This will let you know if the port is open. If it is closed you will need to open it to allow requests to ...

rsync's -a option is actually an alias for (according to the manpage) -rlptgoD. The -p in that list is for "preserve permissions"; i.e., rsync will do stat() on the source file and copy the permission bits to the destination file. Since windows doesn't have any unix permissions, cygwin has to come up with an approximation, which necessarily is somewhat ...

If this is your setup, all you need to do is boot into Linux and let it know you have a new OS installed. So, keep grub where it is, on /dev/sda, boot into your Linux system and run: sudo update-grub That will generate output similar to this: Generating grub configuration file ...
