Subject: How To Install KVM And libvirt On CentOS 6.2 With Bridged Networking

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This tutorial describes how to install the KVM hypervisor and libvirt virtualization library on Linux CentOS 6.2. At the end of this guide you will have a CentOS box (name it host) with the following capabilities: virtualization capacity: chance for multiple guests (Linux/Windows) running and sharing the host's hardware; bridge network configuration: you'll be able to directly access to the guests as if they were physical machines on the same LAN and viceversa; visual management: using virt-manager (I use Ubuntu 11.10 in this howto) you will be able to remotely admin the virtual machines on the CentOS host.

Subject: What Ubuntu Can Take Away From The Raspberry Revolution

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

While the $25 Raspberry Pi is turning a million eyeballs, Canonical’s incessant attempts at conquering non-Ubuntuers don’t seem to be working out as hoped or planned. Even though Shuttleworth, Canonical’s benevolent dictator, has decided to go all out in order to reach his 200-million mark as early as possible, the efforts are still visibly falling short. The recent announcements including Ubuntu TV and Ubuntu for Android have created some buzz among the non-Linuxiens, it’s still nothing compared to what Raspberry Pi has achieved in such a short span of time. Not only has Raspberry given users an affordable computer, it also has started a revolution like the iPad did with tablets. And, instead of looking at TVs, tablets, and smartphones, this is the model Ubuntu should look to emulate rather than running around in a thousand directions.
