Run Linux Mint Debian Cinnamon in VirtualBox

Up

Down

One edition of Linux Mint Debian released a few days ago, features two desktop environments MATE and Cinnamon. The former is a fork of GNOME 2, while the later is an attempt to bring sanity to GNOME 3, to make it look like something designed for use on desktop computers.

However, if you attempt to run it on older computers, those without 3D acceleration, or in a virtual environment using VirtualBox, you will very likely get this error message shown in the screen shot below. read more...

VirtualBox vs QEMU

Up

Down

An amusing, if not particularly useful, article relating one user's experience with VirtualBox and QEMU. However, the comments add some substance...
I started the install at about 8:15am in the morning, and by 1:00pm it was finally finished. By comparison, the VirtualBox install took just 28 minutes start to finish, and that included download time for updates, since I had selected the option to do that at install time. I did not select the update option for the QEMU install because I (fortunately) forgot to select NAT networking for it prior to starting the installation.

Installing Android x86 in VirtualBox

In a previous post I showed you how to install and configure the Android SDK emulator to boot up quickly. What you may have found out by now is that the emulator is incredibly slow. In fact it is only any good if you have the kind of PC that can render the entire Transformers movie in a few minutes.

If you are just interested in running Android applications on your desktop PC, a project called Android x86 provides a copy of the Android operating system compiled for x86 processors. The latest release is Android 2.2, which is a little bit behind Honeycomb (Android 3), but is still capable of running almost all Android applications. read more...
