Migrating from MS Hyper-V to VMware ESXi

After 2 months of intensive use of Microsoft Hyper-V, finally I decided to migrate to VMware ESXi because MS is very very very very very very very sloooooooooooooow :(

I use Virtual Machines for developing and testing new components, so I need lot of (re)compilation using GCC for multiarch pourposes (amd64 CPU build i686 package).

I do lot of work on Hyper-V and I need to move my .vhd disk images to .vmdk.

First of all you need WinImage and you can use it to convert your .vhd to .vmdk.

But, believe me, you can’t use this new brand new piece of .vmdk directly on ESXi, because VMware server refuse to use it like virtual hard disk.

Not, don’t worry, you don’t need to burn you ESXi installation (yes, I do it… 😉 ). You just need a VMware Workstation installation, so you can use vmware-vdiskmanager to import your converted .vmdk to ESXi server.

Simply type:

vmware-vdiskmanager -server IP -u USER -f PASSWORDFILE -r CONVERTED.vmdk -t 4 “[DATASTORE_ON_ESXi]/YouRealDisk.vmdk”

and all will be OK :)

REMEMBER: ESXi don’t support IDE HD, so everytime you startup your machine, you got a warning… simply ignore it !!!! :)

Enjoy,
Salvatore

iPhone 2.0 and Killed message… A solution :)

So, you wrote your first application on iPhone, you compiled without any error, you downloaded on PDA and… a strange Killed message appear… GRRRRRRRR “/(&(/”$!)”$!)”$()!”)$”.

I tried lot of ancestrals rites before solution :)

[Tech Mode On] You need to sign your app before iPhone can run it :( If you, like me, are still waiting damn Apple certs, you can use ldid (install it with apt-get install ldid directly on your iPhone). Syntax is very very very simple: ldid -S YourUnsignedAppt.

Enjoy iPhone :)

Alternate Entry in Blackberry JDE Projects

Hi BB developers,
I think you created, at least one time, an alternate entry point project on JDE editor following step by step instructions reported on BB site.

Results ??? A good rapc compilation but, of course, your .cod file still don’t run like expected :(

You ask: “Why why why why why why why ?!?!?!?!?!?”
Simple answer:
“It’s a BUG !!!!!”.

You need to manually modify your alternate entry point project file (.jdp file) and insert this string:

EntryFor=Your_CDLC_Project_Name

After this change, your alternate entry point applcation work like a charm… :)

Enjoy !!!!
