Re: Can I boot into my windows drive while on my Linux Mint

VirtualBox will read vmdks. From my experience (no benchmarks) VMPlayer out performs VirtualBox and is much easier to configure for bluetooth, usb, etc. I also don't know if VB supports "Unity". VMPlayer is free, too, just like VB. -Hinto Cool and VMPlayer will do what it needs to out of the box ri...

Re: Can I boot into my windows drive while on my Linux Mint

The "tricky" part is is if you want to create a vmdk using your "real" partition. I stabbed at it a couple of times, but punted and used: http://www.vmware.com/products/converter/ to export the XP installation. It's a little trickier tho, for Vista and Windows 7. I had to first export the installat...

Re: Can I boot into my windows drive while on my Linux Mint

NICE!!! Thanks! I guess what I want to do....spelled out....is just mount the Windows HDD in Linux, open a VMware and boot windows within Linux so that I can make sure to keep up with my syncs with iTunes and such. Sounds like it will do just that....

Re: Linux Mint 9 "Isadora" RC released!

Good thing: Isadora works on my old machine (AMD Duron). Before only LM 7 worked on it. LM8 and Ubuntu 9 didn't even boot (kernel panic). Bad thing: Isadora seems to be unstable on this old machine. After booting from the live CD the following following scenarios happen at random: 1. Everything wor...

Can I boot into my windows drive while on my Linux Mint

OK so here is my issue...I have an iPhone that I want to keep up to date. The only way to do that involves using windows. I have two drives. Drive one Linux Mint 8. Drive two has Windows XP. Would VMware running on Linux Mint be able to boot the XP drive? Of course you would need to mount the XP dri...

Re: Metacity compositing

As far as I know, there's no facility for doing this. If you install Ubuntu Tweak (assuming you don't already have it), and go to the Desktop / Window Manager Settings on the left-hand sidebar, you'll be able to see the Metacity features which can be tweaked. Got it....nice app!!!!! There has got t...

Metacity compositing

Re: System booting issues

anybody?

I am beginning to think this is an ACPI problem considering how the resume normal boot works....It may also be with all the switching to different resolutions that the gfx card is getting locked and locking up....but I dont know if this would account for the total sys hard lock....
