Quick way to start Xen virtual machines on bootup

Posted 08-01-2008 at 11:25 PM by hardwyrd

Just a quick tip.

You’re using SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and you are using virtualization with Xen with a couple of virtual machines (DomU) and you are quite happy with how everything turned out. SLES10 is running ok, Xen works fine, DomU’s are healthy and serving as they should. Then again, you need to do a maintenance task and will need to reboot your machine. Then suddenly you found out that you need to manually start all your virtual machines manually! ACK!

Whats up with my Linux systems

Posted 08-01-2008 at 09:18 PM by stickleback

I have been running Ubuntu Hardy Heron on my 5yr. old P-4 and windows XP on the first HD. On my 10yr. old NEC P-2, 168mg. of RAM, I run LinuxPCOs. It runs really well on this old machine. The only problem I've had with Ubuntu Hardy, is that of trying to play a video from a web site. Some of them will not play. And the ones that do, sometimes have a problem with buffering. (You Tube) for example. Other than that I think it has come a long way. I have noticed on the LinuxpcOX system, that it came...

Homework

Posted 08-01-2008 at 09:05 PM by hendoc

I recently bought a Dell AIO 810, mostly for the scanner, as I had 30 and 40 year old pics I wanted to backup to CD. Unfortunately, I didn't do my preparatory homework. LQ and other forums told me that no one had ever made that model work with Linux. I boxed it up and took it back to WalMart. Well....... It seems that Dell put one serial number on the box and a totally different one on the unit. So here I am, arguing with the manager, who is looking at me like I am trying to pull some kind of scam...

Has anyone found a decent word processor yet?

Posted 08-01-2008 at 07:06 PM by zaivala

I've been trying to use the available WP programs, in my work as a professional editor. They don't work. They don't hold formats and even change fonts and font sizes, just from opening a Word document and then saving it again... didn't change anything, but it changed anyhow. I have tried OpenOffice.org (latest version, and yes, I have an official and "stable" copy), AbiWord, and a few others. I can't find an old copy of WordPerfect for Linux, but in the last version it would not edit...
