Monday,June 18, 2012, 08:06 AMLast weekend, I migrated to Debian from Ubuntu(I hate Unity), and I went with Logical Volume installation of Debian. But I did not noticed that my / partition is small (100 MB), although I did created separate LVM's for /usr, /home and /tmp.
After some usage, I noticed that my / partition is approaching 75% usage, so I decided to resize the same.
Here are the steps that I followed-
e2fsck -f /dev/debian/home
Resize the home
lvextend -l+100%FREE /dev/debian/root
mount -o remount /

Tuesday,November 08, 2011, 07:29 AMRecently I got this error while booting a VM off Virtual Box, possibly because I was also using QEMU on my host (Ubuntu 10.04)(KVM).
QEMU KVM supplies this Kernel Module -kvm-intel.ko, which essentially uses VT tech by Intel to enable KVM.
The workaround is to remove the kvm-intel.ko (modprobe -r kvm_intel) when you would want to use Virtual Box and re-insert when you want to use QEMU.
