Talk:Building on Ubuntu Virtual Machine

From Octave
Jump to navigation Jump to search

I'm not sure if getting a Gui octave for Octave developent on WSL2 is the main purpose of this wiki, If getting an octave with GUI on WSL2, for scientific USE is at another place please direct me there.

Update (5-5-2022) : WSL2 on windows 10, seems to be installing UBUNTU by default(?!).

From 04/28/2022 [1], this is for Windows 11 Build 22000 or later.

BUT from [2] : "Windows 10 now lets you run Linux GUI apps (X11 and Wayland) without using a virtual machine after Microsoft added GUI support to the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)." So : No need for Virtual box anymore(?!) , for either win[10|11]?

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21364, is a must for WSLg install? It's a no go for bellow?

Edition	Windows 10 Home
Version	21H2
Installed on	‎29/‎12/‎2021
OS build	19044.1645
Serial number	MP21S3..
Experience	Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4170.0

Seems a good idea to

PowerShell> wsl --update
Default Distribution: Ubuntu-20.04
Default Version: 2
Windows Subsystem for Linux was last updated on 5/5/2022 The Windows Subsystem for Linux kernel can be manually updated with 'wsl --update', but automatic updates cannot occur due to your system settings. To receive automatic kernel updates, please enable the Windows Update setting: 'Receive updates for other Microsoft products when you update Windows'. For more information please visit
Kernel version: 5.10.16

A couple of safety points, do one need to before exiting ?

  Linux>  sync

and similar on WSL2 side to exit with

  win10> wsl --terminate, -t <Distro>
