CLI Version and VT-X

Hello all,

I’m very newbie here and on Whonix. For days I would try to install Whonix 15.x version in VBox/Vmware. However my old machine has 64-bit CPU but luck of VT-X ability. Then Whonix would not start as desired.

So wonder that, CLI verison of Whonix also asks VT-X or not? Can I use Whonix CLI with other distrubitions by their GUI when routing through Whonix?


Virtualization needs hardware support. The GUI or lack of it is irrelevant.

Downloadable Whonix images are 64bit. These won’t boot without VT-x. Out of luck. Unless perhaps build from source code. See:


Thanks I have no talent on building :frowning:

32bit version is still needed so sad no 32bit version of Whonix (any downloadable 32bit previous version link available?)

Not available.


Fedora and Ubuntu (and Debian at some point I guess) are killing off their 32 builds so even upstream is moving on.
