Run Windows and Linux without virtualization

Linux does everything that many users want it to, but some people have tasks that require Windows applications. You can dual-boot both operating systems, or run Windows in a virtualized environment on Linux. Alas, virtualization makes the guest OS almost useless for processor- and RAM-intensive tasks like editing videos and playing games. Now, a Ubuntu-based distro called andLinux takes cooperation with Windows to a whole new level.
The miracle ingredient in andLinux is its coLinux kernel. The coLinux project takes a stable release of the Linux kernel and ports it to run on Windows. That means that, unlike virtualization software, andLinux installs on Windows like any other application.
But there's more to andLinux than just sticking the coLinux kernel in a stock Ubuntu. According to Joachim Gehweiler, one of the developers of andLinux, the project also had to roll in the Xming X server and PulseAudio sound server and make sure these components work together.

How to Customize Ubuntu

Reconstructor is an Ubuntu GNU/Linux CD Creator.

It uses the Desktop(Live), Alternate(Install), or Server disc as a base, and then allows for user customization.
For the Ubuntu Desktop base, you can customize the entire environment. For instance, you can add/remove software, change the default look (splash, themes, fonts, wallpaper, etc.), add desktop links, etc.
For the Alternate and Server bases, you can add any additional software to the disc that you would like installed.
Reconstructor is written in python and is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

My Free and Open Source Project

I desired to start a FOSS project because Sri Lanka is one of the main Foss contributors in the world. But we haven’t enough Foss projects. There are very good project like “Sahana” but it’s not sufficient.

About “ALOKAYA” project
This is neural network framework for Linux. Any AI base software can build on this framework. Very easy to develop software on this framework. This is not traditional framework. This framework provide framework + libries for the development project

Ubuntu Networking Configuration Using Command Line

You can configure a network interface from the command line using the networking utilities. You configure your network client hosts with the command line by using commands to change your current settings or by editing a number of system files.

Configuring DHCP(Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol ) address for your network card

If you want to configure DHCP address you need to edit the /etc/network/interfaces and you need to enter the following lines replace eth0 with your network interface card

sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces

# The primary network interface - use DHCP to find our address
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Configuring Static IP address for your network card

If you want to configure Static IP address you need to edit the /etc/network/interfaces and you need to enter the following lines replace eth0 with your network interface card

sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

How to find File in Linux

For that we can use "find" command.


find /home -user joe

Find every file under the directory /home owned by the user joe.

find /usr -name *stat

Find every file under the directory /usr ending in ".stat".

find /var/spool -mtime +60

Find every file under the directory /var/spool that was modified more than 60 days ago.

find /tmp -name core -type f -print | xargs /bin/rm -f

Find files named core in or below the directory /tmp and delete them. Note that this will work incorrectly if there are any filenames containing newlines, single or double quotes, or spaces.

find /tmp -name core -type f -print0 | xargs -0 /bin/rm -f

Find files named core in or below the directory /tmp and delete them, processing filenames in such a way that file or directory names containing single or double quotes, spaces or newlines are correctly handled. The -name test comes before the -type test in order to avoid having to call stat(2) on every file.

find . -type f -exec file '{}' \;
