Building Whonix From Source Code, Whonix APT Repository, Trust and Terminal-Only



Whonix APT Repository and TrustÂ

Your feedback has been appreciated. Users who build Whonix VMs or physical isolation from source code will do no longer have to change any settings or environment variables in order to disable Whonix’s APT Repository. It is now disabled by default. You could opt-in if you wanted. You could also later update Whonix debian packages from source code if you wanted. This has been implemented in Whonix’s source version 7.3.3 and above. (Latest git tag at time of writing: 7.3.7.)

Build documentation [1], Physical Isolation instructions [2], and the Trust page [3] has been updated accordingly.

Terminal-Only (No-GUI) (No-KDE) Whonix-Gateway/WorkstationÂ

The optional possibility to easily build your own Terminal-Only Whonix-Gateway and or Whonix-Workstation, VM or physically isolated machine has been added to Whonix’s source code.
