An Easy Way To Boot ISO Image From Your Hard Drive

With grml-rescueboot there is an easy way to boot an ISO image from your harddisk to test other linux distributions.
Out of curiosity I downloaded the iso from elementary OS ( elementaryos-stable-amd64.20130810.iso ).

First install grml-rescueboot as root :

apt-get install grml-rescueboot

Then move the ISO image to /boot/grml/ as root :

mv elementaryos-stable-amd64.20130810.iso /boot/grml

Update Grub 2 with the following command as root :


Reboot and you will see a new entry in your booting list.

Friday, August 16, 2013 : Cloud Storage Service With 20 GB Free Storage

Just recently found out about this cloud service : .

You can get 15GB free storage by going directly to the website and register or you can get 20GB free storage by using my referral link .

To celebrate Copy's launch, earn 5 GB of extra free storage for yourself and whoever you refer each time you introduce someone new to Copy. This is a limited time opportunity to rack up huge amounts of extra free storage while we build the initial buzz around Copy!

Error Dependency Is Not Satisfiable : Libc6 Google-Music-Manager

I downloaded Google-music-manager from here :

Installing with gdebi showed the following :

Error : Dependency is not satisfiable : libc6 ( >=2.15 ).......

After some Googling I found an older version from this link ( google music )

Installed without trouble...

To have it work properly (  the "Upload" menu item missing and the "Options" item not doing anything ) I had to delete the ~/.config/google-musicmanager directory and start the manager again ( link ).

Additional link for download ( version ) : here. ( google-musicmanager-beta_current_amd64.deb ).
