adding non-freedom (contrib, non-free) APT repositories by default is it safe?

JasonJAyalaP:

Instructions at the place “install virtualbox”?
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/VirtualBox

Indeed.

what about we instruct the users inside the wiki to add them manually after the installation ? (i think u mean Debian Buster not Sid)

Preferably, stretch-backports (https://packages.debian.org/stretch-backports/virtualbox)

Backports at least get a cursory review. And we already have similar instructions: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/VirtualBox/Other_Versions#Install_from_Debian_Testing_via_Backports

(Unused template: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:Backports_Repository_Add)

This isn’t valid anymore. virtualbox is now installable from stretch-backports.

https://packages.debian.org/stretch-backports/virtualbox
