Hi Anglo,
Thanks as I didn't know about that one.  I just gave it a try after trying to figure the qtemu GUI out, and it wouldn't do anything when I clicked 'start'. Then I found the Pardus Wiki on virtualisation for qemu and followed the command line instructions.  Behold, this time it started with a another window popping up starting the install process of Pardus,

$ qemu -soundhw all -localtime -hda /home/r3hju7asusa8ne/MyMachines/AnkaLinux/AnkaLinux.img -cdrom /dev/cdrom -boot d
Could not initialize KVM, Do you have kvm-amd or kvm-intel modprobe'd?
If you want to use CPU emulation, start with -no-kvm.
asusa8ne@pardus2011 ~ $ qemu -soundhw all -localtime -hda /home/asusa8ne/MyMachines/AnkaLinux/AnkaLinux.img -cdrom /dev/cdrom -boot d -no-kvm

but after getting so far in the starting kernel progress bar, I get the same error.

The error being, 'this kernel requires an x86_64 cpu but only detected an i686 cpu, unable to boot. '

But now I'm getting the hang of using the different virtual machine softwares available.  I asked my husband to try virtualbox on his lap top and it does work on his dual processor machine.  So maybe when I can get my hands on his laptop, I can play with it, or when he lets me have it if he ever upgrades.  That will be a long time in coming.   Cheesy

Hi evowinds,

I completely overlooked the previous answers from you, atolboo and jasperoduus and see you mentioned the BIOS and motherboard capabilities.  Yep, both my socket 939 cpu and a8ne motherboard BIOS don't support virtualisation, so that forum where someone said  that these don't have to support virtualisation was wrong.

Thank you evowinds for the tip!

I just got back from a week's visit to my mother and father-in-law.  I just installed Pardus on a separate partition on my large hard drive and will install Anka atop it.  But I would like to try the virtual machine thing again as that was "neato".  I was at some forum where virtualisation was discussed and there was mention that VirtualBox didn't rely on one's cpu or BIOS virtual capabilities.  We'll see.  Maybe someday I can get a used laptop newer than my desktop and try it on that.

Finally got done what I wanted to achieve but came to a 'sticking point', as the expression goes.  It is a neat idea, though and now I understand better how it works. 
I did a fresh reinstall of Pardus 2011.2 for 64-bit, and installed virtualbox by oracle.  Then started the program after adding my user to 'virt' group.  I was guessing at the next numbers when going through the virtualbox wizard.  I have 4 G of ram and gave the virt. machine 720mb of ram.  Then created a 20 G virtual disk space and had the .vdi in my home folder.  I made sure it was 'released' in virtual machine manager before I proceeded to start. Had the Pardus 2011.2 installation disc in my second dvd burner and wow,  there was the installation of Pardus , but as soon as it got to the kernel progress bar starting up, it stopped and I got the message that the 'kernel requires a x86_64 cpu but only detected an _i686 cpu...'.  My motherboard is a bit old and looks like my cpu doesn't allow virtualization (Asus a8ne withlatest BIOS update, AMD athlon 64 fx57).  Anyway, just wanted to chime in that I can't wait to try it again, but will have to wait until my tool is newer.  I liked the wizard, as it made it easy to install, which is why I put off trying it for so long, as I thought it would be complicated.

Thanks again, atolboo.  Thanks Murat.  I see why it is of use for you as you can use nspluginwrapper Citrix - windows tools.  

My current set up on my desktop is two hard drives, first one has xp pro and second one has Pardus Anka and Mandriva Rosa with a swap in the middle. What I would like to do is reinstall Pardus 2011 64 bit, get all updates, and somehow install Anka OS as the virtual one since it is in its testing phase and some programs in Anka don't work for me (digikam, for one, plus that microcode error).  Forgive me for being ignorant about virtual desktop, but I see how useful it can be.  I look forward to learning how to use it.  I obviously do not understand it. Again, thank you for sharing how you have yours setup.

Thanks, atolboo.  Onward to the pardus wiki I go.

I know this is old thread, but I would like to learn about how to create a virtual desktop.  The one page I read was at ubuntu site and it said it is preferred to create a virtual desktop in windows os (if it is installed on one's computer) and then run Linux in it.  This would would require to use vmware.  Free vmware is for 32 bit and vmware for 64 bit costs money.  Is this how you folks running a virtual desktop have your systems set up (if Windows is installed, too)?

Not a dark cloud, maybe just a high cirrus cloud or fog that burns away by late morning.

From reading and what I understand, it sounds like Yoyo is now free of using KDE Pardus as prefers Gnome desktop and is now using the .deb repositories. which from wording 'my' sounds like he prefers.  Maybe I am picking apart the translation, but it sounds like he is happier now, so that is good thing.

I was picking tomatoes the other day, and well, I got silly.  The second one looked very familiar to me.  Grin

45  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / how to pin inactive appli window to top-solved on: July 08, 2012, 18:11:06 PM
Hi all,
I did a search and couldn't figure out how to do this.  It must be there in Window Behaviour, but I don't see it.
I am trying to keep Gwenview open application on top of my desktop while I work in MyPaint, but everytime I click on MyPaint, the Gwenview window goes behind and I can't see the picture.  I can put the windows side by side by reducing their sizes, but surely there must be a way to pin the inactive appli on top, kinda like one can do with posty notes, or maybe its knotes.
