I am trying to gain understanding. I am used to tails where it is set it and forget it - upgrade when the prompt tells you to upgrade. i read through all the documentation here and learned a lot and made the switch.
so i guess what i am trying to accomplish is to figure out what this “error: failed something broken pipe” is.
trying to figure it out, i looked at all of the folders. the dnsmasq caught my attention because they were “last modified” on a day i know i did not open whonix at all.
i followed the directions step by step and everything worked perfectly until this.
it is of note that it did the same thing again today. i restart my machine and then it opens up fine.
i did not touch or edit any files at all. i was just in the file manager clicking through them and looking at them. i wouldnt trust myself at all to edit any of these files
