Re: The would Richard M Stallman hate you thread. :D

Well HoaS is right about VirtualBox but the truth is the last time I tried KVM even with virt-manager to make it "easy" I just couldn't wrap my head around it the same way I could with VirtualBox. I had the same trouble grokking QEMU so I took the lazy way and stuck with what was familiar.

It's been a while now so maybe I'll have another go at it.

virt-manager just confuses me, try using the command line instead.

I have a guide here:

Thanks HoaS. The last time tried this was before you posted that guide. I honestly don't even remember now what it was that was throwing me off when I tried it. I'll read through the whole discussion tomorrow and give it another try.

Thanks HoaS, I'll try KVM too, I also use VirtualBox and don't feel ok with it.

Anyway, my VRMS report is mostly firmware. I think it would work without much of it, I just need the atheros for the usb wifi dongle, iwlwifi for the internal

Another +1 for Kvm. Had only just started dorking with it and unfortunately current lappy doesn't support Vm's. Still found it to be fairly straight forward to use and its well supported by some heavy hitters in gnu/nix.

Re: The would Richard M Stallman hate you thread. :D

^Pretty dang good, no worries about gory. Again think exclusively open source is an exceedingly rare thing regardless.

Cant help but be awed by RMS, right person, right place and time. Truly cant remember much of the story behind the key figures assoc w the open source movement atm. Too much ethanol, too few braincells left. Cant help but admire them and be grateful though, shrugs.
