Virtualbox troubles

Today I messed up # really badly!

This is the typical # issue!

I decided to share a same virtual machine between two users and it changed all the snapshots associated so random that it was impossible (for me) to repair the XML files associated, a nightmare, and eventually I used the last snapshot thinking to run the last state while it ran the first state instead and I ended up to export the VM again in order to merge the real disk with this snapshot...

And now I am reinstalling everything from the beginning, what a dumb! 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

I think I will never use snapshots again for a personal VM, it is more reliable just export the VM and keep this for any emergencies.

# # nightmares


Playing around with EndeavourOS


Virtual Distro Hopping

Give a try to Sabayon, Calculate or Gentoo before settling with Debian. You may get surprised.
I am not even sure if Sabayon is still active as project, however I don't see the point to use Gentoo on a Virtual Machine with limited resources...
Would have liked to read about your experiences with Obarun. It is arch based and I used it only on bare metal. Install is pretty simple.
