Subject: Ubuntu 12.10 Released, attacking Windows 8

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

Above the download button, a slogan appears urging the users to install Ubuntu 12.10 instead of Microsoft Windows 8, not because of Ubuntu’s superiority but just to avoid the drama of Metro UI. In a matter of fact, it says “Avoid the pain of Windows 8. The all-new Ubuntu 12.10 is out now“.

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

Suppose something went wrong and you discover you have an inaccessible Linux instance on IBM SmartCloud Enterprise? What can you do? The authors of this article walk you through the steps to recover an inaccessible Linux instance. They show how to capture a private image, copy it to persistent storage, use QEMU to boot the captured image or mount it using kpartx, fix the problem, and then import the image back into the cloud.
