Well for some experiments that involved git and curl I was coming across the windows problem I was trying to make my way using cygwin but after few stuck I always get stuck. Everyone’s recommended solution was using linux OS so I have download virtual box created a virtual machine and then installed ubuntu iso 10.10 32 bit. Now as I am trying to get some softwares like chrome and vim I got few errors in package manager saying something like waiting for jockey to end. Google comes to rescue in terminal I run following commands:
ps -e | grep jockey sudo kill process_id
Second big problem was I wanted full screen when using ubuntu solution that I found in some forum is following:
The nut of what you will be doing:
- Install Ubuntu on VB.
- After install and restart, go to the ‘Devices’ menu for VirtualBox.
- Select ‘Install Guest Additions’.
- Open Terminal in Ubuntu.
Type: cd /media/cdrom0 (this puts you to the cdrom directory where you just mounted guest additions) Press enter then type: dir (this shows you what’s inside this directory.) Press enter then type: sudo sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run (this is what you would type if you have an x86 machine, typical. If you have an AMD use that one, and so forth.)
- Wait for update to complete.
- Once complete, shut down Ubuntu.
- Restart VirtualBox
- Boot up Ubuntu.
- Once booted, press cmd+F for fullscreen or cmd+L for seamless.
