“There is not enough space on the file system for the selected operation” in VMware Fusion or Workstation

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/19

Both VMware Fusion and Workstation can give you the error “There is not enough space on the file system for the selected operation” if you expand the virtual disk of a virtual machine.

It occurs when there is less free disk space available on the host disk containing the virtual disk than the newly requested space of the virtual disk. In short: you must have enough room to store the original virtual disk plus the expanded virtual disk. This holds for VMware Player too.

This is a real problem if your main system has SSD only (like a Retina MacBook Pro) where there is an even bigger fight for disk space than HDD based hosts.

It is one of the reasons not only my main system has an SSD drive, but also an external USB3 SSD drive to temporarily make more room available.

Reaver 1.4 (and wash) on Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/19

Reaver-WPS is an excellent tool to test the security of your WPA/WPA2 secured network against the WPS vulnerability.

Getting Reaver 1.4 (which contains wash to scan WiFi networks) to compile out of the box on OS X Mavericks (which is 10.9; why can’t they keep a successive version number in the product name?) didn’t work.

So I downloaded the adapted source pack from one of the comments in Issue 245 – reaver-wps – Support for Mac OS X? – Brute force attack against Wifi Protected Setup – Google Project Hosting (as the diff still not has been applied to the codebase)..

wash will detect most, but not all networks. I’ve net yet tried WireShark, wpscan and wspy yet (they re supposed to get all of them).

To speed up the checking process I tried on install aircrack-ng to associate a Mac with the target network. Compiling aircrack-ng on a Mac from source didn’t work at all. But after installing MacPorts, I could get the MacPorts version of aircrack-ng to work. The bad news: I could not get aircrack-ng to associate to the network.

So these were the commands I used:     Read the rest of this entry »

GExperts 1.37 available for Delphi XE6..6.02, but not for Appmethod (via: Download | GExperts)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/19

GExperts 1.37 (commit 875, but no tag yet) now supports Delphi XE6 and XE5, and ahost of older Delphi versions. Binary downloads are available at Download | GExperts

These were the release news items:

In addition to what is in those items, 1.37contain a substantial speed improvement and some other fixes from me (I hope this fix also will get in later) in the Grep Search.

It is likely that this will be the last GExperts that support Pre-Delphi-2007 versions (currently 2006, 2005, 8.02, 7.1 and 6.02).

It is not clear if there will be a GExperts for Appmethod, as Appmethod does not provide functioning command-line compilers like I already blogged about in Spring4D now has projects for Appmethod, but it cannot support Appmethod in the automated build engine.

You can get an Experimental GExperts version for Delphi XE6..6.02 (that includes a source formatter) from Experimental GExperts Version » twm’s blog.

From Thomas Mueller (the author of the experimental GExperts versions), there are also a few other interesting blog posts you probably will like:
