Recently my apt-get install didn’t work in Ubuntu 10.04 and I couldn’t spend time to fix the source list when it didn’t work straight forward.
Sometimes you may want to take a snapshot of the current state of your virtual machine (in my case Ubuntu Linux) so that you can revert back to it if anything goes wrong in the virtual machine. The feature in VirtualBox which helps in this is called a snapshot.
A snapshot is basically a backup of your virtual machine in its current state.
Suppose you have a local GIT repository where dev-stable-topic is the development branch and time to time the releases are made to the customer from a remote GIT repository which has a branch called release-stable from where the selective changes are merge in a controlled way. The remote repository is hosted in a separate linux server.
Often you will encounter merge conflicts while doing rebase operation as described above.
I was facing an issue recently and it is like this. I run a Ubuntu Linux Virtual Machine on a Windows guest. Because of my specific requirements I need to connect to a specific AP (wifi router) from a Windows machine.
