Microsoft Windows / Re: Windows 11
Last post by scarface - February 10, 2024, 01:23 AM
The new updates for win11 will be released next Tuesday.
Due to my planning (I'm going to Annecy this week-end to see a woman, I have 2 professional meetings on Tuesday, I have a rendez-vous (with another woman) on Wednesday, I have to attend a conference on Thursday...)
In all likelihood, the new version won't be out before the end of February. Those who used to download these versions (I know that hubert, Vasudev and Guliver downloaded some of my releases) will have to wait.

It seems that humbert appreciates the video clips with planes. My favorite one is this one (repost):

Indeed. And no doubt both of us would have been better than her toy.

Quote from: humbert on February 09, 2024, 05:54 AMI don't understand this video. First there's a planeload of people partying, including the flight attendants. This doesn't make sense. A planeload of drunk people partying on a plane is dangerous. Even worse if flight attendants are doing the same thing.

What about those jets following them? And those red ones with Swiss markings? I had no idea Switzerland had an air force. I imagine when they practice the hard part is staying inside Swiss airspace. Switzerland was established as a neutral country is 1815 and has never in it's history been to war. Why buy those jets?
It's just a music clip humbert, don't try to understand it.

Microsoft Windows / Re: Windows 11

I'm sorry to be missing these days, but I have something else on my mind. As usual I will release another version of windows 11 when new updates are out (When I can, I will be busy next week). In the meantime, feel free to continue  the topics you consider the most interesting to keep the forum alive.

In my experience it's godtier compared to vbox. I'd not touch vbox unless I am using a pc that doesnt have vtx or vtd enabled.
You can resize the screen on the fly after guest tools is installed, same goes for network drive if you set up a network connection for the VM.
Shared folder would be using the remote tool you use to connect.

Interesting. It's clear I'm doing something wrong. You mentioned some guides. Is there a link to a good guide? Based on what you're saying it's worth a second look.

I had no idea Hyper-V had guest tools. In the program's walk-thru they're not mentioned anywhere -- unless I was looking in the wrong place.

Did you manage to install a downloaded ISO as a VM under Hyper-V (Linux or Windows) and get the damn thing to work? Or did you use one of the "pre-loaded" VM's on the quick start menu?

Quote from: Shadow.97 on January 29, 2024, 09:14 PMBut yes, in my experience it is not really worth using linux in it unless you plan on using CLI.

On WSL, CLI is pretty much all you've got (i.e, no GUI). You use it to install Linux apps. For example, I typed "sudo apt install gedit" and it downloaded and installed a fully working copy. I'm not seeing an icon anywhere, so just type "gedit" at the prompt to launch it.

Normally you would just follow the setup guide and then unmount the iso after OS is installed.
I didn't see a setup guide. Installing a VM is pretty straight forward. In fact it's not all that different from how it's done in VirtualBox or VMWare. It's just doesn't work unless I'm doing something wrong. I even Ubuntu under those preconfigured VM's they have. It appeared to install but when booted up got just a green screen.

Quote from: Shadow.97 on January 27, 2024, 09:46 PMWhat are you using the hypervisor for?
Just testing it. Not only did I not get it to work, it's garbage when compared to Vbox or VMware. You can't resize the screen on the fly, nor access a network drive, nor create a shared folder. It's garbage. Uninstalling.

Quote from: humbert on January 24, 2024, 06:43 AMHave any of you guys played around with Hyper-V? I started doing that today, The setup menu is relatively easy but I could not get any VM to work. I'm seeing it can't be resized on the fly and I see no way to share a folder with the host OS.

Any ideas?

Did you follow any guides?

Normally you would just follow the setup guide and then unmount the iso after OS is installed.

For folder access you enable guest services after installing guest tools. Then when connecting and selecting resolution you attach the drive you are looking for.
