2014-02-06 06:11:52 -0600 asked a question Trying to install virtualbox or vmware - Fedora 20

I have several classes this semester that require me to run VM's. Specifically W2008 and CentOS. I need either vmware player or virtualbox. I have fedora 20 installed as the host. With both applications it gives me kernel header errors. virtualbox installed fine, but when i go to launch a guest i get kernel driver not installed and to run /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup so i run that and gives me kernel failed, then i installed DKMS and re-ran that command and the log file gives me

Uninstalling modules from DKMS Attempting to install using DKMS

Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/vboxhost/4.3.6/source -> /usr/src/vboxhost-4.3.6

DKMS: add completed. Failed to install using DKMS, attempting to install without Makefile:183: * Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again. Stop.</directory>

For VMWare player 6 it says Kernel headers for version 3.12.8-300.fc20.x86_64 were not found i did search around and found the solution that is suppose to work but i does not work for me and it's this command

cp /usr/include/linux/version.h /lib/modules/3.12.8-300.fc20.x86_64/build/include/linux/

the output of this command is cp: cannot create regular file ‘/lib/modules/3.12.8-300.fc20.x86_64/build/include/linux/’: No such file or directory after i digged into the folders i found that in the 3.12.8XXXX folder is a file named build, that is neither a file nor a folder, and i can not copy it or anything. Which to me is confusing because this command says there should be a 2 more sub folders inside build, but build already exists but i can not cat build, nor can i cd build.

Does anyone have the answer to this? I dont have time to be fixing crap with fedora and maintain 16 credit hours. I've already wasted a day and half and i'm almost at the point of installing ubuntu.

2013-10-24 19:29:28 -0600 asked a question "upgrading" ubuntu to fedora

So a friend said that i could install fedora on top of ubuntu and keep everything in my home folder. Is this correct? I would like to keep the data, hence needing to keep the home folder.

2013-10-24 10:59:36 -0600 asked a question Is there a way to mount hard drive to /home after install?

So heres my issue. I have Ubuntu 13.04 right now... I'm fed up with their BS. I want to switch to fedora. When i try to boot up the live cd i get a grey screen. I need to turn intel setting off in grub. First i need to know how i do that AFTER install to make it permanent. Second. My current hard drive has A LOT of data. about 750GB of 1TB. I have nothing to back up too. So i was thinking of a installing to a 160gb HDD i have laying around. But after install i was wanting to know if i could mount my 1TB as my home folder to have a seamless look to my media. My wife uses this PC also and she isn't exactly the brightest light bulb in the box when it comes to computers, if you get my drift.

I know i can mount the hdd to home during install but to my knowledge that requires a format. Again, i cant format this 1TB drive. Does anyone have any solutions?
