Hey… last night I needed to clone a virtual machine that I have… so… looking around the web I’ve found how to do it…
VBoxManage clonehd /home/user/.VirtualBox/VDI/image.vdi /home/user/.VirtualBox/VDI/image.vdi
By the way… you HAVE to provide absolute paths to VirtualBox images..
Since Fedora comes with Firefox as the default internet browser and there is no way to install Chromium by default, I leave you this post on How to Install Chromium in Fedora in a few easy steps.
First of all… What is Chromium?….
this is an open source browser developed by Google (and it’s the base for his Google Chrome).
By default, Chromium can’t be installed by default in fedora due to some issues with packaging…
(check this article: Why Chromium Isn’t in Fedora).
Now, to the steps:
1. Open a terminal window and type:
2. Create a “chromium.repo” file in “/etc/yum.repos.d” using the following command at Terminal
3. In the opened file paste the following code
name=Chromium Test Packages
name=Chromium for Fedora
4.Save and close the file and at the terminal type the following command
yum install chromium
This should install Chromium on your Fedora 13. You can find it under Applications > Internet > Chromim Web Browser.
Following a screeshot of Chromium running on my Fedora 13.
If you want to have a “www” folder in your home directory and not to use the default: /var/www, you need to use a Virtual Directory within the Apache HTTP Server
Virtual Directories use a module called “mod_alias” wich redirects request to folders outside the server root.
Lets create a virtual directory that will be located in: /home/user/www and will be accessed via: http://url/user
1.- Edit the configuration file (as root)
$ vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Look for the section “Aliases” we’ll write the following lines:
Alias /user “/home/user/www/”
Options Indexes MultiViews
Allow from all
Save and close the file.
2.- Restart the service with:
$ /etc/init.d/httpd restart
3.- Create the folder “www” in: /home/user and a file to test.
$ mkdir /home/user/www
$ cd ~/www
$ vi index.html
Now we should be able to access the fies of the folder: “/home/user/www” via “http://url/user”
First thing we need to do is get the JDK installer
JDK Home @ Oracle.com
Once we have the installer in our local repository (as root):
chmod a+x jdk-6u35-linux-x64-rpm.bin
Let’s update our alternatives:
alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_35/jre/bin/java 20000
alternatives --install /usr/bin/javaws javaws /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_35/jre/bin/javaws 20000
alternatives --install /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so.x86_64 /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_35/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so 20000
alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_35/bin/javac 20000
alternatives --install /usr/bin/jar jar /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_35/bin/jar 20000
To confirm that our installation is successfull:
Should give us an ouptput like this:
java version "1.6.0_35"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_35-b10)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.10-b01, mixed mode)
That’s it. Enjoy.
