While working with VirtualBox in Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot), I was unable to install the VirtualBox Guest Additions. It seems this is not installed with the default installation package. VirtualBox will give you a dialog to download the ISO file but the URL is not valid for the ISO.
After some quick Googling I found the download. Ubuntu installs version 4.1.2 of VirtualBox…
A while back I posted instructions for getting the Aircard 875 to work with Ubuntu Feisty. I am now updating this for Hardy Heron. For me the configuration was much simpler. Here is some information regarding the hardware/software I am using.
- IBM Thinkpad
- Cingular Aircard 875 (note, this is really a Sierra card)
- Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 (updated system as of 20080510)
I have been busy configuring a new subversion server for HCL. Our environment is 99% Microsoft so there is already an Active Directory structure in place. Subversion is hosted on Ubuntu Feisty (7.04) and I wanted to leverage the AD for authentication into my repository. Luckily, the installation was pretty straight forward.
Updated content for Ubuntu 8.04 is available in this post.
I will be taking a trip next week and I wanted to use my department’s WAP card for Internet access. I’m a linux kinda guy though and went on the search for the configuration. I found some notes relating to KDE and OpenSuSE, however I am running Ubuntu Feisty. Here are my modifications to get this card to work.
