How to install ubuntu linux apple macbook pro notebook


Safest option would be to purchase a specialised virtualisation software product like paralleles Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac The 1 choice of customers worldwide to run. OR Fusion http://www.vmware.com/au/products/fusion

then download an .iso which is a cd image of Ubuntu
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/burn-a-dvd-on-mac-osx

the LTS version of Ubuntu stands for long term support, the version that
will most likely work on your mac will be the 64bit version.

I would suggest using a virtualisation program rather than replacing the
mac operating system so that you can be running both mac os and ubuntu
at the same time, without having to shutdown one to access the other.

Hopr this helps.

I personally use Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 and I currently run Ubuntu Ultimate, windows 98, 95 and XP.
It has run trouble free for the past 18months without any issues, it may be something you want to try and I believe it is because it takes advantage of CPU Virtualization, I tried VMware but had too many issues for it to be viable, all this is running on a win 7 based notebook (Acer Aspire 5943g) without using Virtual Box that is my recommendation maybe try on other HDD to see what works for you.

Vmware - slow network on Windows 2000


  • First of all, review which network drivers is VMware using, as there are huge differences between drivers, the worst performance-wise is PCNet32 and the best are vmxnet and enhanced vmxnet.

  • Also, check the speed of the NIC, if it is fixed or auto-negotiation mode.

Hello,

You should add an ethernet adapter to your device list. Try to play with the VMware options: Bridged connection or through the host. Your setting may have changed.

Note: I have no experience with Macs, nor with Fusion. But I used VMware station to run Ubuntu on top of Windows XP. So do be indulgent with my suggestions and say: Father, forgive him for he knows not what he is doing.

I have been given a acer veriton 5100 it has a program called ubuntu it does not have windows program and will not auto run disks that i insert can you give advise


"Ubuntu" is a Linux operating system, not a Windows operating system. It will not run any windows programs or autoplay any windows CD's unless you have an "emulator" or hypervisor installed, which is not by default. Here is a link to the Ubuntu website that you can browse to find out more information on that Operating System - http://www.ubuntu.org  There you can research the running of a Windows emulator called "WINE" (much to detailed to get into here). Or you can purchase a 3rd party hypervisor, such as VMware Workstation, that will run a virtualized copy of a Windows operating system (such as XP) inside Ubuntu.
Long story short - you cannot use your Windows disks in this laptop with Ubuntu operating system installed without a add-on emulator or program.
Good luck!

VMware virtual machine Ubuntu 8.0.4 and VOIP Linphone: no audio


What OS is the virtual machine running on? Also there is a flash bug that will not let go of the audio device until you have closed the browser. I assume that is not your problem, but it is aomething good to know anyway.

VMware


Since you do not have a DVD, Vista is out, That leaves you with Windows XP (if you have it) or Linux/BSD. Your question does not give a lot of details, are you trying to install VMware Server or ESXi?
Both are free but there is a big difference, ESXi is a bare metal hypervisor and VMware Server is not. This means the ESXi does not need an operating system already installed but VMware Server does.
VMware has posted hardware that is compatible with ESXi but you should note that you really need at least 2 computer to run ESXi - one as the actual server and another to manage it. With VMware server you only need one machine and it is less sensitive to hardware but you have to have an operating system already installed on the machine, then load the VMware server and then create the virtual machine. What type of machine are you trying to create VMware supports practicaly all versiona of windows and linux. Can you detail what you have and what you have done so far to get the error message?
