So I’m trying out LL 4.0 on a new (to me) old laptop and wanted to remove virtual box so as to speed up getting to the start menu faster. I used the info in the 4.0 release announcement where Jerry has listed the 5 lines.

I wasn’t sure if I was to copy and paste each line separately or do it altogether so did the first three lines all separately. After pasting the first line and hitting enter then entering my password it did “stuff”, but after each of the 2nd and 3rd lines it didn’t seem to do anything it just came back with the usual line it shows when you initially open terminal.

I then copy and pasted the last 2 lines together and pressed enter and it did “stuff” again.

So it seems maybe it gets to the start menu a bit faster, however because of the way I did it above I’m wondering if anything really has changed and what is the correct way to do the steps to remove virtual box? I suspect I will be using more 64 bit laptops and LL 4.0 so would like to know for future.

You copy and paste each line seperate into terminal followed by hitting enter.
After that you go to Menu, Settings, Session and Startup, Application Autostart and Untick vboxclient.
Restart laptop and you are good to go.

Thanks.

So since I did not do each separately I am presuming nothing happened and that I should now go and do this all over again (separately)?

The 1st line of each that you pasted probably was successful - so yes, rerunning each as a separate command will fix.. If its already been ran it won't do anything as its already been done :) ...

You could run back to back commands but would need '&&' in-between...
Code: [Select]
command1 && command2
LL 4.6 UEFI 64 bit ASUS E402W - AMD E2 (Quad) 1.5Ghz  - 4GB - AMD Mullins Radeon R2
LL 4.6 64 bit HP 6005- AMD Phenom II X2 - 8GB - AMD/ATI RS880 (HD4200)
LL 4.4 UEFI 64 bit Test UEFI Kangaroo (Mobile Desktop) - Atom X5-Z8500 1.44Ghz - 2GB - Intel HD Graphics
LL 3.8 32 bit Dell Inspiron Mini - Atom N270 1.6Ghz - 1GB - Intel Mobile 945GSE Express
RETIRED LL 2.8 64 bit Dell Optiplex 160 (Thin) - Atom 230 1.6Ghz - 4GB-SiS 771/671 PCIE VGA

Thanks TMG1961 and firenice03 I will do that today or tomorrow.

It will be interesting to see if there is any difference in start-up time as right now it takes about 45 secs from pushing the power button to the first login prompt.
