There's no equivalent to Microsoft RDP Gateway service on Linux, but there are ways to simplify connecting to multiple RDP servers through a single external IP which should suit your needs. The best solution on Linux I've found to date is Guacamole; not the green dip that goes great with tortilla chips and a tequila, but the clientless html5 RDP Gateway. ...

I tried to upgrade an old Dell Inspiron desktop with failure after failure in SECOND_BOOT phase, MIGRATE_DATA at 86%. Couldn't get past that whatever I tried. But this worked for me and I've put it on my website: http://howto.probably.me.uk/windows10.html

This too me WAY too long to figure out and I've tried so many things now that I don't know exactly what did it.

The double command prompt is due to the way how the remote current directory is queried and displayed in an RSE-compatible prompt. Please check this bug.

As the computer starts, Press F2 or Delete to enter BIOS and check the time there. If it's not showing correct time change it. Save and exit BIOS, check if it works. Another reason can be a week cmos or motherboard battery, replace it.

I managed to compile my own binary with this: Download the "autoconf" source file from SQLite Download page. Unzip and extract the tar, change to source directory. Compile the source code with: ./configure --enable-readline make I am running on RedHat, so I had to run yum install readline-devel beforehand. This might be different on your machine.

The page you refer to, https://log.amitshah.net/2010/09/communication-between-guests-and-hosts/ includes a link to the API to use from Windows guests (as well as Linux guests): http://www.linux-kvm.org/page/Virtio-serial_API I believe this is what you're looking for. Edit: Also, the QEMU Guest Agent source code has a working example of how the qemu guest ...

Questions 1 and 3 are related and can be answered at a time. As per the grep man page (emphasis mine): --exclude-dir=DIR Exclude directories matching the pattern DIR from recursive searches. So basically what you specify with that option is a pattern and not a directory itself, meaning /var/www/sometext* or even /var/www/sometext/* will expand and ...

If you updated to a 16.04 Ubuntu server, and are using 5.7.12, you are encountering--at least in part--a bug eating up RAM, and some dynamic optimizations/default settings that are based off the server's available RAM and are set less than ideally. This has been problematic for lots of people, but especially for smaller server/vps with low RAM. Search ...

No, your company cannot track what you do in an OS, which is in a drive that they do not have. So, keep the drive to yourself, and don't store any personal data on the company's drive.

Giving the guest full GPU access is probably not possible. If a virtual machine had direct access to your GPU, bad stuffs would happen because sharing memory between two effectively different computers is not a thing; pointers and addresses and whatnot would be very different between them. (No consumer-available card supports servicing two computers at once.)...

I believe you need a host-only network: https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html#network_hostonly First, be sure to create the network interface in the main VirtualBox interface: File -> Preferences: Network -> Host-only Networks To access the network interfaces on the VM, the IP address range is typically, by default, in the range 192.168.56....

There's a few things I see which could be the cause of your issue. The first is that your dns-nameservers: 8.8.8.8 8.8.8.4 line has a colon in it, and that could be causing an issue. Second, 8.8.8.4 is not a valid Google DNS server, (it should be 8.8.4.4 as per this), but that shouldn't matter if the 8.8.8.8 address is working. Next, I don't see anywhere ...

By default, this release of ubuntu-on-windows loads the file named ~/.bashrc (instead). It's interesting though because ~/.profile has a section in there to automatically load ~/.bashrc. So if you reverse it to make .bashrc load .profile, you'll need to uncomment that.

Let's assume your in your directory the presence of the files 1.a,2.a,3.a. With the command ls *.a | xargs -I{} echo {} | sed 's/.a//' you have no subshells, the output of ls is piped in xargs that make its substitutions. Then the output is piped to sed. From here your first result. With the command ls *.a | xargs -I{} bash -c "echo {} $(echo {} | ...

There is a free software I use a lot which is EasyBCD. It allows you to completely customize Windows bootloader.

I agree with you completely I was in the same position a couple weeks ago. It is the dual boot, what I did was physically unplug the sata power and data cables (just to be safe) from the disk containing Grub and in my case a copy of Centos 7, then I allowed Windows 10 to install itself and then after wards plugged the disk back in and everything worked like ...

This works for me and it should work with your curl/openssl version too. errno 104 means a connection reset so I assume that some middlebox like a firewall is causing the problem. Check from another network where you can be sure that there are no firewalls involved.

I propose a quick workaround: to move a whole directory with a lot of data from the jammed partition to the empty one, then to create a link to that directory in place of the original one. In your case, let's suppose you have a big storage data DirWith40GB and its subdirectory. From the shell you can mv /home/user/DirWith40GB /mnt/vbd/Dir2 cd /home/user ...

it looks like you are on a laptop using NVidia optimums technology (the laptop has the integrated intel gpu, and a dedicated NVidia one). Your laptop is likely overheating because it is now disregarding the lower powered intel one, and using the overkill NVidia gpu for everything. The solution on Ubuntu for this is to download Bumblebee, a utility that ...

The answer to "why doesn't Linux provide this feature" is mu. a Japanese word alleged to mean “Your question cannot be answered because it depends on incorrect assumptions”.

It's certainly possible. A repository you use for installing software is often nothing (much) more than a ftp/http server providing packages as files. In case of Debian-based distributions these are .deb files. You could download these and install them offline. Often the package-manager even provides an option to "download-only". Usually you use the ...

Today, I was looking at this question and it's comments. I found out that removing ntfs-3g from a live USB of Ubuntu 16.4 allowed me to access my 500gb Windows drive which was not working before with gparted while it was installed. I don't know what fixed it, but it's now working fine. Sorry if I missed anything, this is my first post here.

First off, do not let anyone service your computer that you dont trust. When it comes to laptops, there are very few parts that can be removed. Generally speaking, the only things that can be removed on a laptop are the memory, hard drive, and optical drives. Some laptops will come with other removable hardware such as mini-PCI devices, like modems, ...

Wouldn't bother. Check this out: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202807 So with SMB it supports only up to real old FAT32, allowing max 32GB volumes and max 4GB File size. No NTFS, no ExFAT. Maybe the apple proprietary files systems may work, but not supported in combination with SMB. Here I am staring at a 1TB drive with up to 12GB sized files and my ...

So as I understand it, you did the same procedure as you did with Debian and Elementary, but with Kali it didn't work? In that case, I'd imagine it's because of the way you've copied the ISO to your USB drive, you might have to do it differently for Kali. I'd try gnome-disks if I were you, it's always worked for me.

It's not necessary that you can have this problem for Nvidia. I don't have Nvidia, but I still got this problem, which I solved by following these steps.

You give directory as source argument and expect cp to copy the files. To do this, use -r (recursive) option: sudo cp -r -i /media/owner/ESD-USB/mysql /var/lib/ This will create (or overwrite the content of) /var/lib/mysql/ directory. You probably want it that way. Otherwise, if you want to copy the files from within mysql to /var/lib/ (i.e. not to /var/...

IMHO you should pay great attention to those points at least: be very careful about software security updates to have vulnerabilities patched as they are discovered, especially around Apache and public web apps you can run on (blog, wiki ...) prefer to use non-standard tcp ports to be a bit less targetted by bots disable ping answers on your modem be very ...

upstart is something that was never in the RHEL stream, so you won't find much about that on a CentOS system. Following the guidance on this link there is another option for setting that variable. dbus-launch will print out the shell variables for you, so you could just do . <(dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session) to source the output of that ...

If you only have port 80 forwarded you shouldn't be much concerned, but it depends on your webserver.
