Re: re-Alternatives to VMware

Gnome Boxes is okay-but-not-great (imho). A member of the QEMU-KVM family, though, like Virt-Manager, so not really a fourth option. I second qemu/kvm. However I have noticed it can be slower than virtualbox is by far. At certain times. Slower? Really? I had used VM Player for well over a decade. W...

Re: QEMU prevent guest from using hosts VPN

I am under the impression that method will not work with WiFi. I was checking if anyone had a successful procedure with WiFi.

Then create a Rescue USB or CD (option at the top of the GUI). After you have created the Rescue USB/CD you can uninstall Macrium from windows. Rescue is a boota...

Re: QEMU prevent guest from using hosts VPN

In the title you complain about qemu not using VPN, and in the text it seems you want to use bridged connection, that will not use VPN. The issue was I did not want the guest to use the hosts VPN, not that i did not want it to use a VPN at all. Most of my guests use different VPN's. VMWares Player ...

Sometimes I connect through a US IP and it works, sometimes not. Sometimes Canada. Sometimes Japan. I am beginning t...

It depends if you only have a single profile or multiple profiles. Your Brave files are here: /home/$USER/.config/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/ (./config is a hidden folder in your home directory) Your bookmarks are in a script. And kept in the Default directory and Profile # directories(s) (Profile ...

Re: QEMU KVM Installation fails - withheld or defect packages

I followed your Synaptic instructions exactly and it did not show any of the required packages. Short answer is the problem is the packages are not in the repositories you are using. Sorry, I did not realize you are using an older version of mint. The list I gave you is for the current version. If ...

QEMU prevent guest from using hosts VPN

All my VM's that I regularly use on the internet have their own VPN connection. My laptop (host) has a VPN connection. At times it is fine, others it is a nightmare. When I used VMPlayer I was able to use a bridged network over WiFi and that bypassed the hosts VPN and everything was fine. Since it s...

Interesting, thank you for the explanation. FYI - Over the last couple of weeks I have switched over to QEMU/KVM. I used VMPlayer for years, over a decade, I found it better than VBox. But after getting QEMU/KVM going, it is better and faster than VMPlayer. You do not have to convert VMP vmdk files...
