Slow console performance in Ubuntu

The console on Ubuntu 10.04 server is painfully slow under virtual machine. The solution is to disable the frame buffer. Just append "blacklist vga16fb" to the end of the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-framebuffer.conf, save and reboot. (To prevent gdm from loading replace "quiet splash" to "text" in the /etc/default/grub and run update-grub.)

Updating Mac OS X to 10.6.6

Use combo update to 10.6.6 it doesn't break the Mac App Store.

In case if you have old CPU (< core duo) install before rebooting:

In case if samba won't connect after updating:
cd /System/Library/Extensions/smbfs.kext/Contents/Resources
sudo chmod a+x load_smbfs
