In the recent years I have received some mails and questions as to how I SSH into a VirtualBox machine from my own pc.
It is actually very easy to do! So I decided to write it down in case more people are wondering about this. The guide below assumes you already have a machine created if you have not done so then skim trough the guide and do the steps at the creation of the machine the result will be the same.
This guide was based on a Fedora 18 virtual machine while it should work on any other Linux operating system the locations I use might be different if you use a non red hat based system.

I decided to write this small guide as I seem to have no proper USB access every time I install Linux and use VirtualBox.
There are probably be more people that stumble on this problem and for those I will explain how to resolve the problem and make USB work in your VirtualBox.
In order to get USB to work in VirtualBox as a normal user you will have to do a few step outlined below.
Step 1: Open a Terminal as “root”
Step 2: Check if VirtualBox correctly created the group “vboxusers”
$ tail /etc/groups
If you do not see a “vboxusers” group this means you did not...

I will provide below the instructions of how to install the Spotify 0.9.0.133 for Linux Preview on Fedora 18 and Fedora 19 Alpha.
It seems Spotify currently does only provide Debian packages for the newest versions so on Fedora 18 and Fedora 19 Alpha you will need to create your own rpm packages.
We already created the rpm packages for you all you have to do is the following:
Fedora 19 Alpha:
(64 bit): $ sudo yum install http://trash.ulyaoth.asia/trash/rpm/spotify-client-0.9.0.133.ulyaoth-1.fc19.x86_64.rpm
(32 bit): $ sudo yum install...

In this little guide I will show how you are able to install the official nVidia.com drivers in Fedora 16.
Why would you want to install this well I assume when you are reading this you already know the answer to this.
For me I personally I get much better performances with the nVidia.com driver then the Nouveau driver that comes with Fedora.
Well lets start!
Step 1: Check what nVidia card you have, if you already know please skip this and go to Step 2.
$ lspci |grep -i VGA
For me this shows
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GF460 [GeForce GTX 460] (rev a1)
You need this to...

WARNING FLASHING YOUR PHONE CAN BREAK IT!
Some of us do not us Windows for many reasons , I’ve written below instructions for you to flash your Galaxy Note (GT-N7000) to the new Hong Kong rom (N7000OSLA2). Ofcourse you can use this guide for any other rom you wish to use!
I’m assuming you’re familiar with Linux and will skip the software installation. I will use Fedora 16 in this small guide but you are able to download packages for any distribution using any search engine.
As a precaution, remove your SD card from your phone before you continue..
