Re: Can you show me how to run a bash file in Terminal immediately after startup?

If you mean after logging into your desktop then Startup Applications is correct. You need to create an entry that runs an executable bash script. Lets say its called myscript.sh and it sits in your home folder. Make it executable: >sudo chmod u+x myscript.sh Now, in startup apps ADD a custom comman...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using kvm VGA passthrough

I shared my latest findings on performance and linux with the facebook "linux mint cinnamon" page I admin so I'd like to just repeat the information here. This is very important and affects everyone: If you have a high performance and/or gaming PC you really need to set the default temperature used ...

Disk Utilization panel applet cause 100% cpu spikes

Been pulling my hair out trying to figure out why Cinnamon Desktop (process called "cinnamon --replace") spikes cpus after sitting idle for a while. This results in full system hiccups when watching videos or doing anything. I honestly think it borks Xorg. Anyway the answer is that a panel applet ca...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using kvm VGA passthrough

I am having issues accessing an audio cd with qemu. I added "-cdrom /dev/sr0" to my script. The cdrom drive is visible in windows. I insert the music cd and then boot but get an error about unreadable format. If i eject it and boot and then insert windows complains of an unreadable format. I have an...

Re: Linux Mint 18 codenamed “Sarah”

All went well for me. I run a complex mint 17.3 setup. I am running mint 18 with few issues. I did have a huge issue getting booted using upstart, but I have a procedure for that now. If anyone wants a copy of the procedure I can post it. You can boot the old init or upstart with it. I would greatl...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using kvm VGA passthrough

Hey, I have lookingglass working fully. Unfortunately, the ivshmem driver only works with windows 8(latest driver) and 10. I am using windows 10, but w10 causes massive lag with pulseaudio. I have windows7 and pulseaudio working perfectly so i am waiting for the windows 7 lookinglass host and driver...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using kvm VGA passthrough

After many years of trying to achieve the perfect setup for playing DX11 games in linux I am finally there. One of the main hurdles was overcoming audio stutter. I traced down the issue to virtual hardfile lag. Not even using the redhat virtio drivers helped. So, yesterday I got in a 1tb ssd, an int...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using kvm VGA passthrough

hey powerhouse. Now to the drive configuration. Since you use a thumb drive, it is plugged into a USB port. You can try this line in the qemu script: -usb -usbdevice disk:/dev/sdc where /dev/sdc is the thumb drive (make sure it is). To test it, I used a Linux Mint thumb drive: sudo qemu-system-x86_...

hey powerhouse. I need help switching to using a real drive. I followed your link to using qemu images but there is nothing there about using real drives or LVM. I bought a 512gb pny thumb drive,. it has read/write at 400/250mbsec. I used pv to copy my existing image file to it. I can see the partit...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using kvm VGA passthrough

Hello, Powerhouse, Have you tried using looking glass yet? You have to have a quadro professional card, but it changes qemu so that you do not need an external monitor for the gaming card. You see your VM in a window with full gaming. https://looking-glass.hostfission.com/ I will never buy a quadro ...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using kvm VGA passthrough

Good news: Pulse audio started working. All of my lag is gone. All of the lag was caused by using usb audio. Never again. With windows7/fallout 4 on max settings and linux viewing a 1080p stream in firefox my total cpu usage is only 68%. Two OS's at once is nice. Bad news: Windows is making a new lo...

I have asked this before, but I have come back to the issue and would like to solve it. With qemu working I boot in 4min 18secs into windows 7 using seabios and mbr. If I remove the "-vga none" switch and let qemu emulate a standard vga controller I boot in 1min. Why is this? Is qemu hanging for ove...
