The reason the process continues running is because when you close all of its windows it actually just minimizes to the tray, or at least, it carries on running until you have closed it using the Quit option either by choosing that for the option from the tray, or from File > Quit in one of the windows: As you probably will have also noticed from the ...

I could be a little off-base on some of this, so an adjustment based on information from upstream maintainers of the various projects could be in order. But this is what I think I've observed: When SPICE is used with virt-manager, it requires XKB extension in the X server. If not, virt-manager complains bitterly when run with --debug switch. (You get ...

When I build my VMs in KVM, I use VMM (Virtual Machine Manager) it is in the Ubuntu software app, you connect to the VMhost via SSH, the only gotchas are you will want to also install Ask Pass as well, anyway, after running through all the configurations Disk size, memory etc, right before you start the VM for the first time there is a check-box that allows ...

Create a new img, maybe that will help and change it in your script see: dd if=/dev/zero of=windows#.img bs=1M seek=size count=0 where windows#.img is a unique name for each virual machine image and size is the size of the image you want in GB * 1000. If you want roughly a 80GB image, enter 80000. We want a 120GB image, so we entered 120000. By default, ...

Due to some very strange issues, Secure Boot is breaking the keyboard under the server installer. A temporary workaround is just to disable Secure Boot for the VM.

There is no need to drop caches; Linux will cache data as much as it is allowed to, when memory pressure gets too high it will start to discard pages that are no longer useful and write back dirty pages to free up spare memory. The Linux philosophy is to keep data cached just in case it needs to be accessed again later, and if memory is required it will ...

Just fire up a container with its own copy of the OS, run your test, and blow it away when you are done. Here are the instructions. They run at bare metal speed, are insanely fast and simple to create and destroy, and do not permanently steal system resources that they aren't using.

I added a usb controller to the virtual machine in vmware that I was using KVM and the console connected. (Source) Hope that helps, it worked for me in a similar setup.

I finally found the solution here: >"C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManage" modifyhd "D:\Pat\to\VM\Snapshots\{b0e3f93f-49fe-49bc-9ae2-79e80da6cf01}.vdi" --resize 20480 0%...10%...20%...30%...40%...50%...60%...70%...80%...90%...100% Now GParted sees the added space.

I once had a very similar problem, providing read-write access to the shared folder. It was possible to read files but I was not allowed to write files to the shared source path folder. Unix & Linux - KVM / QEMU / Virt-Manager : How can I store files in the mounted shared folder The root cause is that the guest system is running as libvirt-qemu user. ...

The issue was caused by multiple images added to the VM. After I removed all the images excepting the GParted ISO, it started working. After that I got another little problem: The GParted Live CD failed to continue after selecting the basic options (mode, language etc.). The solution was to enable the "EFI" option.

The GParted Live .iso file is a bootable CD image. Did you connect the .iso image to the Optical Drive in the VM and then start the VM?

Try installing scsitools and re-scanning the devices sudo apt-get install scsitools sudo rescan-scsi-bus.sh Then check the available space sudo fdisk -l Or use gparted if that's what you prefer. If you see the extra space extend the partition And lastly extend the filesystem on the guest vm resize2fs /dev/sda1

Firstly, rebooting is not required when creating VFs. Infact rebooting will remove the VFs(if any created). Use the below command to view the number of VFs for a specific PCI device: cat /sys/bus/pci/devices/<pci-address>/max_vfs It should be zero when no VF is created, now create a VF using the below command: echo 1 > ...

Installing and using Android Studio on Ubuntu 16.04 is a task that needs a certain strategy and you need to follow certain steps. Your system must be equipped with a 64-bit CPU capable of supporting Hardware Virtualization and at least 4 GB of RAM but this will not be enough if you're planning to use other programs while Android Studio is running. In that ...

One way is to route the traffic, without using the network bridge: ip route add 10.0.6.0/24 via 192.168.0.16 dev eth1 A solution with network bridge is still welcome!

Yes, it can. You have to enable it, through. VirtualBox VM Settings->Display, check "Enable 3D Acceleration" and "Enable 2D Video Acceleration" on the screen tab. (And if you haven't set the Video Memory up to 128MB here yet, do so) This allows the guest to directly use the host's GPU for OpenGL and Direct3D, instead of emulating it. This should work on ...

I ran into same issue myself, open virtual machine manager, go to edit > preferences > New VM. For graphics type change from systems default (spice) to VNC. After doing this you should be able to type in your VM.

Actually I did not need to do anything. From my configurations in the my question above, I just needed to know the IP address of my virtual machine, then from any computer connected to my physical network I can just type that address the web browser. I used ip addr show, it spit number of IPs, one is the static ip with my host ip. The other one from the ...

I found a windows 8.1 driver that works. I downloaded the RPM file linked below and used the qxldod driver for windows 8.1 following the same instructions on the site mentioned in the question. The screen resolution can now be changed although auto-scaling doesn't work. The device will not show up as a QXL device until the driver is installed, update the ...

You should use port forwarding capabilities of virtualbox. You'll find this settings on the adapter properties of your VM. Forwarding 80 and 443 should be enough. See virtualbox manual here for more details: https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html#natforward I assumed that your host has a static public IP. If it's not the case, as said john, you will ...

In your router forward port 80 and 443 to 192.168.56.10 Then when an external request hits port 80 or 443 http https it will be routed to the VM guest machine at 192.168.56.10 This may only work if your default gateway is 192.168.56.1 or you may have to change the static address on the guest so matches the gateway .. for instance if your default gateway ...

Although the community wiki states that as of Ubuntu 14.04, GRUB will automatically choose to boot Xen first if Xen is installed, it doesn't if you don't run Ubuntu (16.04) in English. To be able to select the right kernel at boot open /etc/default/grub sudo nano /etc/default/grub and comment out the following 2 lines by putting a # in front of it and ...
