    Parallels is basically just telling the guest OS (ubuntu) about a very generic NIC -. Parallels is pigy-backing on the host OS (OSX). Flip back to OSX and test you settings while ubuntu is up and running. Also, within parallels settings for that image - you can specify DHCP, or a static IP if you need it.


    Yeah Alan, tell us how it goes.
    ;)

    Well, there definitively IS an issue with your torrent file. I tried fetching it with the standard "bittorrent" client (made from the guy behind the file formats/protocols). But instead of trying to convince you or others, could you share which bittorrent clients you have used which accept that file, so I could get one of those?

    Thanks,

    Marius K.

    Azureus worked fine for me downloading the Fedora Core 5 build. There was no DS_Store file included in that one, though.

    Azureus looks like a far more polished product than the BitTorrent client I've used before.

    I' haven't read deeply all post but Peer-to-Peer is mostly slow not because hosted on slow systems but because it's providers' policy do slowdown Perr-to-Peer downloads. You should understand alone why; just think how many people are downloading huge file (i.e.: movies) via Peer-to-Peer slowing down the whole net.

    No problems :) Posting this from Firefox in FC5.

    I'm running PD build 1884 on a 2.66GHz/2GByte Mac Pro. Downlaoded, unzipped and launched the FC5 image, and it all "just worked" (TM). Next I have to find out how to get teh RPM facility to work so that can add developer tools to the mix.

    I'm a happy camper, and Parallels now have my $80.

    Re. download speed, I adjusted my max upstream in Azureus to 35 KBytes/sec, a bit lower than my ADSL line's maximum upstream. The download rate them peaked at over 400 KBytes/sec.

    [corrected the build number ]

    I don't think Microsoft would be too happy about a Windows 3.11 (or otherwise) image being posted. All the linux builds are freeware.

    Hmm! Sorry, I spoke too soon. The pre-packaged FC5 build doesn't look as if it includes any package management utilities (RPM or Yum?), there are no development tools, and I'm not confident in my ability to install additions the hard way.

    I have managed to get a Fedora Core 3 and a Fedora Core 4 to install from downloaded ISOs, so I guess I'll stick with FC4, as I can customize or reinstall that as required.

    YUM is there (and RPM installers work). I'm an Apt guy, but I hear you can add apt to RH..
    Go up to Add/Remove programs. There are tons of dev tools (ruby, python, java, etc)
    Is that what you mean?

    I took them all out trying to make the image smaller.

    Sorry, but I can't see Add/Remove Applications. First thing I looked for. It's right there in my other Fedora Core versions.

    I don't use Linux as a desktop - why would I when I have a Mac? ;) What I do want is to cross-develop for a Linux target web server. All I really need right now is gcc for cross-compilation of code debugged in Xcode, plus httpd/php/mysql as a server emulation.

    Isn't that interesting! Here's my screenie of the same menu. As far as I know I've done nothing to modify it, but as you can see, there's no Add/Remove Software option at the bottom of the main Applicaitons menu, just a divider line where it should be.

    Isn't that odd..

    Try /usr/bin/system-config-packages

    If not then do: yum install yumex
    (then look under system tools)

    Sorry, I'll have to unzip and see what may have happend.

    Not really. I mainly enjoy developing Cocoa apps.

    My prime motive wrt Linux is that I support a web site that uses Red Hat, and I need to adapt and evolve a couple of tools written in C++ that are called from PHP, working with MySQL. They are pure command line executables. Xcode is my preferred IDE, but it doesn't compile Linux-native executables. I can do all the heavy lifting in Xcode to develop changes to the tools, and debug them using OS X Apache and so on, but I still need to recompile and check them in the Red Hat environment. So I need something that is a reasonable approximation to the Red Hat server config that I'm targeting - hence my interest in Fedora.

    Related question that I have asked with no reply...

    http://forum.parallels.com/thread4229.html

    basically, I cannot get any of the nice network sniffers and other tools in backtrack to be of any use under Parallels as they all only see packets from the local subnet. I think there is some issue going on where promiscuous mode is not enabled or virtualized on the virtual network device.

    Ethereal works on my mac natively and can see everything but installed on any VM it only sees 10.x.x.x packets and internet traffic to and from the VM.

    Etherape is what I really wanted to get working as the Darwin Ports version does not display any data for some weird reason so is useless. Linux under parallels was my next hope but that seems crippled for this purpose.

    Or am i missing something?

    Help me out guys...

    Hey guys i'm kinda S.O.L. here. I'm in college (TnTech) and I can't figure out the port forwarding and proxy stuff. So i've been googlin like mad trying to find these files up for download via http

    I found one ubuntu and it was corrupted... (i guess the same one yall were talking about)

    So i'm asking if anyone has uploaded or knows anywhere to get either Xubuntu or Ubuntu already compiled for Parallels...

    If any of oyu guys could upload it to a server or something i'd give you like 400 cool points. I'm out of luck and I only go back home (unrestricted internet) every couple of weeks.
