  • I have made available a nice scriptlet for virtual machine backup. It is especially designed for production environment. Available as free download from http://forum.hostbreak.com/showthread.php?t=302.

  • A more scalable approach, one that survives updates, is to simply use the boot parameter

    "i8042.noloop".  I describe how to do this on my blog, link below.  The patch also works on the default release LiveCD, but will not work if you upgrade the kernel to fix other bugs.

    Setting the boot paramter just skips the whole issue.

  • I can't seem to find a script in my books to get my mouse to start working again. I have ubuntu loaded on my laptop and the mouse stopped moving. I think the updates was not completely installed and it cause it to freeze up. Do you know the script to get my mouse to start working again?
