The guy you see to the left. Electrical/electronics engineering student mostly doing embedded development. Linux user since '05.

You might want to check what I am up to on my blog (in Portuguese mostly), my Twitter or my GitHub, or my skills are available on LinkedIn. Alternatively, if you want to see what I'm listening to, check my last.fm or Spotify profiles.

If you have any doubt/problem about my questions/answers, comment on them.

I will always try to comment why did I downvote, and will remove those downvotes if questions/answers are subsequently improved.

comment Running Windows 7 on Ubuntu
There is no need - or better, no way (as far as I can tell) - to assign '2 GB in RAM 1 and 2 GB in RAM 2'. Just assign 4 GB RAM to the Windows VM.

comment how to install a chrome on my RHEL 5.3 box
while it's possible, I don't think this is a good idea, might result in other stuff breaking.

comment how to install a chrome on my RHEL 5.3 box
This won't help, as the glibc in RHEL 5 is very old (glibc 2.5, while Chrome requires glibc 2.11 as per the error message).
