TPM Passthrough in Linux Virtual Machine Manager (virt-manager)

TPM Passthrough in Linux Virtual Machine Manager (virt-manager)

Hi everyone, Today, we will see how to pass our TPM (Trusted Platform Module) from our machine to our QEMU/KVM virtual machine using the Virtual Machine Manager tool. We will also modify an AppArmor configuration file to allow access to it. This is needed mostly if you plan on using Windows 11 as a virtual machine, unless you use a method to patch a Windows 11 ISO image in order to install it. Once Windows 11 is installed, the TPM…

Installing the Linux Kernel 6.0.0-rc5 in Ubuntu

Installing the Linux Kernel 6.0.0-rc5 in Ubuntu

Hi everyone, Yesterday, the Linux Kernel 6.0.0-rc5 was released. This kernel is mostly a bug fix release. Unfortunately, this release failed to build for the amd64 architecture on the Ubuntu Kernel Team site, but the good news is that today’s daily build succeeded, and we can download and install it in our Ubuntu system. Because the kernel failed to build for the official 6.0.0-rc5 release, we cannot install it via the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel Instaler tool. Instead, we must download…

You can now install the Linux Kernel 6.0-rc3 in Ubuntu with the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel Installer tool

Hi everyone, While the latest Linux Kernel is currently at the 6.0-rc4 version, now we can install the Linux Kernel 6.0-rc3 in our Ubuntu Linux systems.

Installing Daily Ubuntu Linux Kernels manually (And the Linux Kernel 6.0rc1)

Hi everyone, In this post, I will show you how to install the daily builds of the Linux Kernel from the Ubuntu Kernel Team Server site. Last week, we got the very first Linux Kernel 6.0 release.

Starting up the PulseAudio Service manually in Ubuntu 22.10

Starting up the PulseAudio Service manually in Ubuntu 22.10

Hi everyone, You may recall the post I wrote about installing WirePlumber a few weeks ago. This was because Ubuntu 22.10 will switch to using the PipeWire audio server as the default, replacing PulseAudio. However, there are still some packages that may depend on the actual PulseAudio service due to its implementation. An example of this is the pulseaudio-dlna package, which uses PulseAudio to add DLNA renderers as sound output devices. Therefore, we must start this service manually in Ubuntu…
