  1. [ubuntu] Re: Seeking document to configure Virtual Machine Manager - KVM

  2. [ubuntu] Re: Seeking document to configure Virtual Machine Manager - KVM

    Last time I used NFS under Windows was in the 1990s. We needed a full-time admin to manually sync the user and group DBs from the Unix side with what Windows needed.

    Re: Sometimes No WiFi at Boot

    It is a setting in the router, not your computer, if this is really the issue. The idea is that one of your neighbors got a new router and it is using the same channel that your router does for...

    [ubuntu] Re: Does your ubuntu support M.2 PCIe NVMe?

    If a storage device is full of other OSes, then Linux cannot use it. Linux cannot be installed into NTFS file systems. That's a Windows-only file system. Linux supports many other file systems,...

  10. Re: Development of the [Boot-Repair] and [Boot-Info] utilities

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Seeking document to configure Virtual Machine Manager - KVM
