    Hi Guys! Welcome to LES! Want to share a little more, please, about who and where you are, your Linux experience, and what you want to do with Linux, KVM, and LXC? Thanks! Best wishes! Tom

    i am a student and i am new to LES . I Want To Use QEMU , And KVM , Can I Get Free MetalVPS Intel i9-13900 Traditional Shell Account ?

    Hi @ExAjiMag! Thanks for your renewed request. Could you please share a little more about

    • who and where you are,
    • your Linux experience, and
    • what you want to do with KVM and LXC on the server?

    For example, merely saying you are a student might not be enough information. Maybe you could tell us whether you are a high school student, a university student, or a graduate student. Maybe you could share about how long you have been using Linux, what distribution you use, and the open source projects, if any, to which you contribute. On the server, what do you want to run on KVM and on LXC?

    Of course I will keep trying to give you a free account. The more information you share, the easier it is to give you your account. :)

    Best wishes and kindest regards,

    Tom

    Hi @ExAjiMag!

    Thanks again for your renewed request! Please ask three people who know you to write references for you and to email their references to me at the address on my LES profile. It would be helpful if at least one of the references is from a teacher or an administrator at your high school and if another could be from one of your parents. I look forward to reading the references and to provisioning your account soon! :)

    Best wishes and kindest regards,

    Tom

    Hello!
    I would like to get an account.
    I'm interested with Linux and Virtualization technology like KVM and I'm currently learning about it, so I would like to try Linux and QEMU-KVM (Virtualization) there.
    By the way, I'm a vocational high school student from Indonesia and currently learning about tech-related stuff, mainly focusing on Linux management and Virtualization.

    Here is my SSH key:
    ssh-ed25519 AAAAC3NzaC1lZDI1NTE5AAAAIH1AJ0O0J9IrWbGK0eJ6o/4+K8tXOH7uCafQ4djYTB8r eddsa-key-20230419

    Hi @itsmepaddi!

    Welcome to LES! And to MetalVPS!

    I provisioned your account. Please try something like

    ssh [email protected] -p 42365

    It should work both by IPv4 and Ipv6.

    Your password is in a mode 600 file in your home directory. Please feel free to change your password. Password login has been disabled, so you need your ssh key. You might need your password later, for sudo, but you have not been added to sudo yet. You have been added to the kvm group.

    May I please ask:

    • How did you write your MetalVPS account request posted here in this thread? Your English seems pretty good. :) Did you use AI?
    • I am not asking you to prove anything, but, if you needed to do it, how might you prove that you are "a vocational high school student from Indonesia?"

    I hope you enjoy the server! Please post here in this thread about your progress and about your questions. Posting here in the public thread is great because everybody can learn from your experience and, also, everybody can help you answer your questions.

    Again, welcome! Thank you for joining the server! Best wishes!

    Tom

    I actually wrote it myself and I don't use any type of AI to write my request.
    I'm an IT student from a vocational high school in Indonesia. At school, we learn about Linux, Operating System, Virtualization, Web (Web design/coding) and another IT-related stuff.

    By the way, thanks for the account!
    Paddi

    You are welcome! Congrats again on your English! It looks like your school is doing a good job for you! Best wishes!

    Another method of increasing the size of the qcow2 file:
    Almost the same as @cpsd method but without the need to increase both /usr and the /var partition

    qemu-img resize debian-sid-nocloud-amd64-daily.qcow2 +20G

    Then:

    qemu-system-x86_64 \
    -nographic \
    -cpu host -enable-kvm \
    -m 1G \
    -hda /home/nubuki/debian-sid-nocloud-amd64-daily.qcow2
    

    For some weird reason though I had to ctrl+d or it'll get stuck at:

    @nubuki @cpsd Thanks for posting about resizing. Besides the methods you have been using, I heard that there also was some kind of an auto-resize mechanism which sometimes works on the first boot. As I recall, that autoresizing behavior was reported to have happened sometimes back on my wonderful former server, Darkstar. I never clearly understood the autoresizing process. But maybe we can figure it out.

    Another important aspect of all this is that, awhile back, I picked the nocloud image as something to try because I wanted an image where the -nographic option worked out-of-the-box rather than an image which automagically booted into video. In other words, the nocloud image might not be the best one for us to be using.

    Thanks again to both of you for your fun posts! <3 Best wishes! <3

    Byobu and GNU screen have been installed. Tmux already was installed. Friendly greetings! :)

    That nocloud image has the advantage to allow root login and you can change the password later. Ubuntu Cloud images https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/ require passing some complicated parameters. That is why I tried a fresh install from an ubuntu iso instead :).

    It seems with a normal image it'll first have be to converted to a qcow2 file ; and it can be done with QEMU
    So I'm gonna try with a fedora iso

    Hi @Not_Oles Im a 13 year old student who lives in USA and wants to use metalvps for QEMU-KVM vms and commands that require sudo permissions.

    @cpsd said: That nocloud image has the advantage to allow root login and you can change the password later.

    Yes, easy root login and not switching to video are two advantages of the Debian nocloud image.

    @nubuki May I please ask where/how did you get the idea to delete and restore the partition? Did you read it somewhere or did you think of it yourself? :) Here is the delete + restore the partition idea on Stack Exchange: [How to expand ext4 partition size using command-line?}(https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/67095/how-to-expand-ext4-partition-size-using-command-line)

    Here's a resizing hint. One way to resize a partition inside the VM might be to use the growpart utility from the Debian cloud-guest-utils package. Quoting from that page: "This package contains programs useful inside cloud instance. It contains 'growpart' for resizing a partition during boot, which is normally done with the aid of cloud-init."

    When I was playing with VM creation back on Darkstar I was trying to keep the complexity and the size of the VM images as low as possible. Therefore I have not yet installed the cloud-guest-utils package.

    Yet another solution might be to add an additional virtual disk file to the VM and to keep user data on that additional vdisk. This method might have the advantage of eliminating the need to back up the entire virtual operating system, and, instead, back up only your important user data. You might not need to bother growing the original image.

    So we now have three solutions to the image size issue: growing the image externally and then (1) growing internally with a partitioning tool like fdisk, (2) growing internally with growpart, or (3) avoiding the size issues by adding a second vdisk. Does anyone know about additional solutions? Thanks!

    On approach to this that I used on my first dedi was to use LVM to create a LV per VM and store the image on that.

    I used the debian templates from https://cloud.debian.org/images/cloud/bullseye/latest/ and found that just doing lvextend -L+10G /dev/vg0/whatever-vm and then rebooting the guest was sufficient for the guest to resize its root partition. This works because the cloud images are set up so that the root partition occupies the space at the end of the disk, even though there are other logical partitions numbered higher, they actually are earlier on the disk.

    On my next dedi, I just had one big partition for my VM images and used qcow2 thinking de-duplication would save space, and thinking it'd be nice to try making snapshots. I never have actually done that though, and when I did have to resize the image it was a hassle. Moving the VM to another machine was easier because I could just shut it down and rsync the file.

    So overall, I'm not sure which approach I prefer on balance, but would probably lean more towards LVM.

    Hi @Not_Oles Im a 13 year old student who lives in USA and wants to use metalvps for QEMU-KVM vms and commands that require sudo permissions. I have used linux for 2 months so i have some linux experience. So can i get the MetalVPS Intel Core i9 13900 Traditional Shell Account? My ssh key ssh-ed25519 AAAAC3NzaC1lZDI1NTE5AAAAIGV/KlwL17GtX51zxcNRHk6J/2zzIw9b0mrzpBMcQ/aV eddsa-key-20230420 ssh key generated with puttygen. Best wishes! Ken

    Hi @VMCreator!

    Welcomex to MetalVPS! I went ahead and created your account. You should be able to log in over IPv4 or IPv6 with something like ssh [email protected] -p 42365.

    Your password is in a mode 600 file in your home directory. Password login has been disabled, so you need your key to log in. Please feel free to change your password. You might need your password later for sudo. You have been added to the kvm group but not yet added to the sudo group.

    Please post here in this thread about what you are doing on the server and about any questions you have. The advantages of posting here in this thread include everybody being able to see what's happening, learn from others' questions, and help others by answering questions.

    Have you thought about the speed and efficiency penalties resulting from working inside LXC and KVM compared to working on the node itself? Maybe you might want to measure these penalties, perhaps with the yabs script or other ways?

    Please read the entire thread carefully. There is gold hidden away among the junk. Please note that additional network and other configuration might be needed on the node before LXC and non-slirp KVM can be used. Therefore, I recommend that you start on the node's command line, then try KVM with slirp. If you want, you can help me figure out the additional network and other configuration needed for more advanced non-slirp KVM.

    Liz Rice has some "simplified" LXC tutorials. Google will help you find them. If they interest you, maybe you could try them.

    Hope you have a fun day! It's great having you on the server!

    Best!

    Tom

    Hi Guys! Welcome to LES! Want to share a little more, please, about who and where you are, your Linux experience, and what you want to do with Linux, KVM, and LXC? Thanks! Best wishes! Tom

    Hello, I'm 14 years old student, live in USA. I know Linux well, I had Linux on my main PC! I want to try creating KVM virtual machines, learn more about Linux. Also I want to try creating LXC containers.

    Hi @Nikitas!

    Welcome to MetalVPS! Your account has been provisioned. Please try something like

    ssh [email protected] -p 42365

    Login should work on both IPv4 and IPv6. Password login has been disabled, but your password is in a mode 600 file in your home directory in case you need it later for sudo. You have been added to the kvm group but not yet to the sudo group.

    It's important for you to know the contents of previous posts in the thread. Please read the entire thread before you start trying to create your first VPS. Check out especially the comments of @cpsd. Make sure to read the qemu slirp tutorial.

    Please post here in this thread about any questions you have and also about what you are doing. It's always good to post in the thread because posting here allows everyone to answer your questions and to be inspired by your successes.

    Best wishes on the server! Have fun! :)

    Hi @Nikitas! Sorry for this inconvenience. A question came up about the information you provided to sign up. Could you please ask three people to email me their recommendations for you? It would be helpful if at least one of the three could be from a teacher or an administrator at your school. Another could be from one of your parents. The third can be a friend. Please ask your three senders to send their emails directly to the address on my profile. For the moment, your account has been suspended. However, your account can be restored as soon as additional verification is received. I am looking forward to restoring your account! Best wishes and kindest regards, Tom

    That's really cool! I really like it! You get double disk and double bandwidth! :)

    If it's not too much trouble, can you please skim through your command history and post the sequence of commands needed to make this? Maybe add links to any tutorials you used plus also add your own comments.

    Congrats! 🤩

    I dont think I may have posted the full public key. Does the hostname and user also need to be put with the public key?
