Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.1 on Ubuntu 11.10 Server

This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with VirtualBox 4.1 on a headless Ubuntu 11.10 server. Normally you use the VirtualBox GUI to manage your virtual machines, but a server does not have a desktop environment. Fortunately, VirtualBox comes with a tool called VBoxHeadless that allows you to connect to the virtual machines over a remote desktop connection, so there’s no need for the VirtualBox GUI.

Did Microsoft Just Kill Ubuntu Tablets?

There is no doubt that Canonical is looking at the ARM based hardware for its tablets. But Microsoft seemed to have nipped Ubuntu’s Tablet in the bud. The company tweaked its Windows Hardware Certification Requirements to effectively ban most alternative operating systems on ARM-based devices that ship with Windows 8. Source:...

Install Ubuntu TV from a PPA [How To]

Ubuntu TV can already be compiled – instructions available on the Ubuntu wiki, and using those instructions, you can run it without installing it, which is actually the best way to do it (since it doesn’t replace Unity 2D), but if you don’t like to compile stuff, you can use a test PPA I’ve created for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot.

Tame the Ubuntu 11.10 Unity interface with MyUnity

The new interface introduced with the latest version of Ubuntu has had a mixed response. MyUnity offers an easy way to change some of the visual settings. This can make the Launcher and Unity in general easier to use as well as that satisfaction in having it set up exactly as you want. Installation is a little more complicated than most programs but it is worth the effort. According to the OMG! Ubuntu blog, MyUnity has been accepted as an official program for the next version of Ubutnu. The quickest way to install MyUnity is with the Terminal. Click on the Dash button at the top left of the screen, type terminal and click on the program icon that appears. Type sudo add-apt-repository ppa:myunity/ppa and press Enter. It will tell you that MyUnity should be available in the Software Centre but I had to install this way, so press Enter to confirm when prompted. Next type sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install myunity and press Enter. You might not have to enter your password again. Press Y to confirm the installation when prompted. This second step can be skipped if you want to look in the Software Centre but since the terminal is open, you might as well use that. To start MyUnity, click on the Dash button, type MyUnity and click on the icon. Source:...

build.opensuse.org binary backend was down

The SAN array of the backend server server lost 3 hard disks over the weekend. That means the array with the built RPMs was broken. We checked and replaced a lot of files from backups – but since not all binary parts of the projects are in backup we need to rebuild some of them (31 from 24,194) afterwards. The good news: sources and project configurations were affected by...
