    [all variants] Forward VPN to another client

    OK, so this is a bit tricky to explain. Bear with me. :D
    I have a VPN service which I connect to with a Virtual Machine (both the host and the guest are Ubuntu 12.04.1). This arrangement all works...

  3. [SOLVED] Re: Make upstart job wait for VirtualBox to end gracefully

    Ah yes, I see now. This is the post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=11283453&postcount=28. Very handy.

    Thanks!
  4. [SOLVED] Init.d Respawn?

    Well, I'm not 100% happy with it though... :P
    The upstart job (if it worked) would boot my VM without needing it to be in the "Saved State", and it would also respawn it if it happened to shut...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Make upstart job wait for VirtualBox to end gracefully

    Having said that, the init.d script does work perfectly. Thanks!
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Make upstart job wait for VirtualBox to end gracefully

    Hmm, I really would have preferred to use upstart - it's much more user-friendly. Would this be a bug possibly? Even if I make the pre-stop command the VBoxManage savestate command, it will save the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Inhibit Shutdown during Remote Session

    After doing some experiments, I found that if a user is logged in through SSH the computer is inhibited from shutdown - just as it is for an actual login. This is good to know, I can have the users...

    [ubuntu] Inhibit Shutdown during Remote Session

    Sorry for the cryptic heading, I couldn't really think of a better way to describe what I'm trying to do.

    I will soon be replacing my family's main desktop PC (with another desktop), and want to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Natty EXT-4 filesystem errors

    I found that it wasn't a Natty-specific issue. Despite my previous comments, it did occur in Lucid too. I'm pretty sure it was because of a slightly corrupted file that Transmission was trying to...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Change reserved space on truecrypt EXT4 partition

    For my system, with TrueCrypt 7.0a and Natty 64bit, the mount point was "/dev/mapper/truecrypt1" instead of "/dev/loop0". But it worked! :P

    Fantastic! Thanks heaps. I'll try this right now.
  14. [SOLVED] Change reserved space on truecrypt EXT4 partition

    How do I go about setting the reserved space in the EXT4 filesystem in a truecrypt partition to 0%? I don't need the super-user to have any reserved space, but using the normal way doesn't work: ...

    I managed to get through the check for each of the files in Transmission. But after I left it running for a while it happened again. I guess this would indicate that there is not one specific area of...

    So, are you saying that it "just works"? Is this with the Noveau or whatever the default driver is? And compiz works? Have you tried watching HD videos with it?

    Thank you very much!
