Installation finishes without error?

Alright. Strange but… Let’s see.

cd into helper-scripts

cd helper-scripts

Folder ~/genmkfile-packages-result needs to exist.

mkdir ~/genmkfile-packages-result

Build using cowbuilder.

make_cowbuilder_dist_folder=~/genmkfile-packages-result make_use_cowbuilder=true make deb-pkg

And if helper-scripts can be build successfully using cowbuilder, try building hardened malloc with it.

Btw if you git cloned Whonix (to build Whonix images) then all sources of all packages are already on the disk in folder

~/Whonix/packages

OK this exited with 0 status make_cowbuilder_dist_folder=~/genmkfile-packages-result make_use_cowbuilder=true make deb-pkg

Everything seems OK, maybe I should try to build Whonix-Host 15.0.0.4.5?

So both helper-scripts as well as hardened malloc could be build using cowbuilder successfully?

Success also meaning… Packages are build and can be found in this folder…?

~/genmkfile-packages-result

What is the exact command here for hardened_malloc?

cd  hardened_malloc
make_cowbuilder_dist_folder=~/genmkfile-packages-result make_use_cowbuilder=true make hardened_malloc
make: *** No rule to make target 'hardened_malloc'.  Stop.

Can’t hurt but I wouldn’t be surprised if you run into same original issue Whonix Desktop Installer with Calamares - field report.

Always same.

make_cowbuilder_dist_folder=~/genmkfile-packages-result make_use_cowbuilder=true make deb-pkg

hardened_malloc failed

Same issue as in original report.

Yes

Should I retry with a new VM from scratch? Maybe we are losing time debugging some weird bug when I could try anew with a fresh VM?

1 Like

I would hope that would work, but I don’t know. Worth trying in fresh VM.

Likely a low RAM issue. I managed to reproduce this using a Whonix VM with default 2 GB RAM.

While trying to debug kswapd0 process had high CPU and system responded in time lapse.

Increasing VM RAM to 4 GB RAM and I am past that build bug.

root cause - maybe: cowbuilder or something using aptitude. And then aptitude, dpkg or postinst showing obscure error messages and no out of RAM error.

Can you please add signify-openbsd as a buildtime dep and also state the min resource requirements on thie build guide page?
