    I am.

    It's not just SMB, though, is it? I thought it was actually a shortcut between the VM and the host, since you need to install the guest additions to use it. I thought from the guest's...

    What?

    If you're replying to me, then the problem was that --buildpkg is broken, but --install works.

    If you care about quiet computing, look at idle power consumption. 4670 is excellent, 4770 not so much. Now, 5750 or 5770, that would be pretty good. :) I found this chart recently:...
