Hot keys in Mandriva 2009

Posted 10-16-2008 at 08:19 AM by Bengan

I downloaded and installed the official distribution of Mandriva 2009 as an update to 2008.1. I can't get the hot keys to work, specifically the PrintScrn hotkey to ksnapshot. I have browsed around and found files with references to PrintScrn as well as Ksnapshot, and everything seems to be enabled. There must be something I have missed! What?

I came to college with nothing more than 27 hours of AP credits and a dream to work at RedHat as an intern. Ever since I started, I've been downloading a Linux distro just about every week. I decided that getting QEMU would be...

Flimp - Graphical frontend for Command Line Image Manipulation tools

Posted 10-14-2008 at 05:56 PM by rbkumaran

Setting udev permission for raw host disk access by virtualbox machine.

Posted 10-14-2008 at 10:02 AM by dr_agon

applies to: linux, udev, permissions, device node, virtualbox

To allow raw host disk access by guest machine on VirtualBox the user must have read-write permission to all partitions which are to be accessed. You can do this by something like
sudo chmod a+rw /dev/sda7
but executing it every time you need to boot virtual machine is annoying. You may want to set the permissions at boot time.
In modern kernels (since 2.6) you can use the udev rules for setting default...
