I had some issues with backports, because I had still an apt preference pinning Debian stable.
Are you sure you removed this older version before installing backports?
Quite certain. Because apt-get/dpkg do not allow to have both versions installed at the same time. Uninstalled, installed, restarted and so forth many times.
1. Make a custom xml specifically for stable Debian users removing *all* problematic parts - which includes the RNG unfortunately.
Pretty much a non-solution.
2. Encourage manual upgrades through backports,
Versions from backports are already installed.
I even reinstalled all installed packages (using a small script). No way to fix this system. But this is bad, because I won’t be able to help someone else having a similar problem. Nevermind my/this system. I’ll reinstall when I find time. Hell, like in Windows times.
I am looking forward to see a few other Debian stable users to test KVM.
Maybe when jessie becomes stable we can make KVM the default choice for Whonix on Linux hosts. It has great potential. Even more reason since virtualbox will be no longer in Debian main in jessie (https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Dev/Virtualization_Platform#VirtualBox_no_longer_in_Debian_main).
until Jessie hits stable. I hope that happens soon.
Search term "debian jessie freeze".

Then they start stabilizing "until it's done". So will take quite a while.
