VirtualBox on headless CentOS 6

January 31, 2012

Due to the need to install a server which will be used mainly for hosting virtual machines, but also be capable to provide other services, such as being FTP and Samba server, I decided to go with the CentOS Linux, without having X windows and such unnecessary things installed, Oracle’s VirtualBox, and the PHP front-end for it called phpVirtualBox. Anyway, to make a long story short, here’s how to do it. ... Read more

VMware VMs Linux startup script

March 14, 2011

Once the hardware on my home PC got upgraded I decided to run a couple of virtual machines on it at all times.

December 21, 2010

How it all started… Well, first things first… After using Linux for many years now I got used to the tool called YaKuake. It’s a quake-like console that can be set to start upon logging in and to be scrolled down and hidden just by pressing F12. This proved to be very useful tool that I practically got hooked on. Now, beeing sometimes (well, most of the times lately) forced to use Windows I’ve been trying to find something similar to this, and then I bumped into this and by using the instructions and tools provided there I managed to fix up this little thingie I called “Quake-style Terminal for Windows” (not quite intuitive, I have to admit, but couldn’t come up with anything better at the time). ...
