I was trying to run a Debian, Linux, guest on a Windows 11 Enterprise host with virtualization enabled for the VMWare Linux guest so that I could install minikube. Minikube requires running a VM on the host on which minikube is running, so essentially, a VM within a VM.
After enabling the “Virtualize Intel VT-x/EPT or AMD-V/RVI” setting and attempting to boot the VM it indicated that this configuration was not supported on this platform.
After quite a bit of → Continue reading “[SOLVED] ‘Virtualized Intel VT-x/EPT is not supported on this platform. Continue without virtualized Intel VT-x/EPT’ on Windows 11 host”
Sometimes you will want to ensure that a file is sourced instead of executed. This ensures, among other things, that any environment variables that the script defines remain in your current shell after the script completes.
To do so, use the following to check whether the file was sourced or run in a sub-shell
(return 0 2/dev/null) && sourced=1 || sourced=0
Bash allows return statements only from functions and in a scripts top level scope IF it → Continue reading “How to check if a file is sourced in Bash”

The TLDR; is to first use tr to replace all occurrences of any horizontal whitespace character with a single space, and then squeeze down any number of spaces to a single space and then define the delimiter for cut as a single space. The following example assumes that you want to see from the 5th column to the end of the line.
<do-something-to-generate-input| tr '[:blank:]' ' ' | tr -s ' ' | cut -d ' ' -f5-

This recipe is for pumpkin pie made from fresh pumpkin. I have not tried swapping out the pumpkin for the same volume of canned pumpkin. I typically use a Cheese or Galeux d’Eysines pumpkin. The former is a squat, grey colored pumpkin that looks like a cheese wheel and the latter like it was grown in Chernobyl and is grey covered in what can best be described as warts. The more ‘warts’ the sweeter they are. They are both delicious.→ Continue reading “Pumpkin Pie”
