2014-01-17 00:46:26 -0500 asked a question Using system alt-tab inside Gnome-Boxes

Is there a way to use alt-tab to switch between system windows, not in the OS inside Gnome-Boxes? For now, I have to put my mouse at the top of my screen for using alt-tab to switch windows. When I used Virtualbox, there was a release/host key, which forwarded the keystroke to host system. Is there an way to do the same now?

I am using CentOS 6.5 with Gnome-boxes inside Fedora 20. Is it a better alternative than Virtualbox for such a configuration? Can I verify if it is using all sorts of optimization modules?

your method worked, but everything in the directory became executable, which didn't happen when I mounted manually. Can you provide a guess about what happened?

it became ok after an hour or so. I have just installed my system yesterday night. Maybe something to do with that

Here the 99.7% column is cpu & 7.7% column is memory.

The specification of my computer is as follows

Intel corei3-330M
4 GB memory
1 GB Nvidia gt325m(have not installed driver, because it tends to mess with system)

Can anyone explain whats going on here? Is this type of resource usage normal?

2013-10-25 03:32:49 -0500 answered a question Install CUDA in Fedora 19 with Bumblebee

Ok, even though I came here looking for answer to the same question, one thing is I am quite sure of; you can't install CUDA toolkit with Bumblebee Nvidia driver. You have to use official proprietary driver. And another problem I have heard, CUDA toolkit is compiled with older GCC version, probably 4.7. So you can't use CUDA toolkit on fedora 19 directly.
