Adjusting the size of the virtual machine's hard disk

VirtualBox increase disk size on Linux

In this tutorial you will learn how to increase disk size on VirtualBox. One of the great things about installing an operating system into a virtual machine is that we can easily change the machine’s CPU utilization limit, its memory usage, and the amount of hard drive space it has. With VirtualBox, all of these hardware specifications can even be changed long after the virtual machine is created.

VirtualBox Guest Additions installation of Fedora Linux

Virtualbox Guest additions installation on Fedora Linux

If you’re running Fedora Linux inside a VirtualBox virtual machine, installing the Guest Additions software will help you get the most out of the system. VirtualBox Guest Additions will give the machine more capabilities, such as a shared clipboard with the host system, drag and drop file transfer, and automatic window resizing.

This makes copying data to and from a host system much more convenient. It also changes the VM’s resolution automatically when its window is resized, so you don’t need to change it manually. Guest Additions will work with just about any Linux distribution, but instrutions can differ because of dependencies and package managers.

In this guide, we’ll be going over the step by step instructions to get VirtualBox Guest Additions installed on Fedora Linux. With these instructions, it doesn’t matter what host system you’re using, as long as the virtual machine is running Fedora. This guide assumes that you’ve already installed Fedora in the VM correctly.

In this tutorial you will learn:

Configuring a VirtualBox shared folder

How to configure shared VirtualBox folder on Linux

After installing a Linux distro into a VirtualBox virtual machine, you may be wondering how to share files between the host operating syste and the virtual machine itself. One of the easiest and most convenient ways to provide this function is by setting up a VirtualBox shared folder.

Essentially this means that a folder on your host machine can be mounted on the virtual machine, where both systems will be able to access files or drop them in the folder. It doesn’t matter what host operating system you’re using, as the instructions will be the same across Linux, Windows, etc.

In this guide, we’ll go through the step by step instructions to configure a shared VirtualBox folder. We’ll also show you how to mount the shared folder on your Linux system, allowing you to easily share files back and forth.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • How to configure a shared VirtualBox folder on Linux

How to use bridged networking with libvirt and KVM

How to use bridged networking with libvirt and KVM

Libvirt is a free and open source software which provides API to manage various aspects of virtual machines. On Linux it is commonly used in conjunction with KVM and Qemu. Among other things, libvirt is used to create and manage virtual networks. The default network created when libvirt is used is called “default” and uses NAT (Network Address Translation) and packet forwarding to connect the emulated systems with the “outside” world (both the host system and the internet). In this tutorial we will see how to create a different setup using Bridged networking.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • How to create a virtual bridge
  • How to add a physical interface to a bridge
  • How to make the bridge configuration persistent
  • How to modify firmware rules to allow traffic to the virtual machine
  • How to create a new virtual network and use it in a virtual machine
