Not able to start VMs in Virtualbox – Ubuntu 12.10

After installing virtualbox you get the following message:

WARNING: The character device /dev/vboxdrv does not exist.
Please install the virtualbox-ose-dkms package and the appropriate
headers, most likely linux-headers-generic.

You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.

To fix it run the following commands:

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
sudo dpkg-reconfigure virtualbox-dkms
sudo dpkg-reconfigure virtualbox

N900 Mer boot to QMLViewer

The following kickstart files allows the n900 to boot into qmlviewer, I’m going to highlight just the bottom of it, with the next lines we create the launcher for the qmlviewer and then create a symbolic link to make it the default desktop environment.

cat > /usr/share/xsessions/x-meego-qmlviewer.desktop << EOF
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Name=qmlviewer session
Exec=/usr/bin/qmlviewer
Type=Application
EOF

# Set symlink pointing to .desktop file
ln -sf x-meego-qmlviewer.desktop /usr/share/xsessions/default.desktop

Here is a video of N900 booting:
