Virtual machines

Posted 12-23-2008 at 03:17 PM by jozik

Well, that was easy: installed Virtualbox (using synaptic) and made a couple of virtual machines: Debian and WindowsXP. It's really simple, just don't forget to make a virtual disk and to mount de CD/DVD-drive or ISO-image with the installation disk(-image). Funny thing is that I get the impression that the virtual machines are faster then the 'normal' ones, at least in powering up. I'm curious to hear if you have the same impression.
I'll use the virtual Debian machine for my LPI training,...

Ok, so over the last weekend, I was doing my regular updates - a habit I picked up when I was using sidux, but it made sense to try and update regularly.

Anyway, I reload the Kubuntu 8.04 sources and it tells me that there's a dist-upgrade available i.e. to 8.10 (whatever they've called it).

Ok thinks me, I might as well, so I fire it up........

How to Install Latest Wine in debian Etch

Posted 12-22-2008 at 02:29 AM by sridhar11

Wine makes it possible to run Windows programs alongside any Unix-like operating system,particularly Linux.
