Expected Build Warnings

Please review:
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Dev/BuildDocumentation_8#Expected_Build_Warnings

I would like to see the actual (short)explanation of the error.

[1 sentence explanation]. [Does not affect the build]

Should we add GRUB and dkpg error from this post?

https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,7.msg218.html#msg218

Maybe “root : unable to resolve host host” too?

Sounds good to me.

One suggestion:
If we introduce virtualbox as a build dependency (as it is due to vboxmanage), we should take care that it is properly installed/configured. I.e. we should also pull the respective kernel-headers. Even if we just need vboxmanage for the VM build process, pulling virtualbox without ensuring that it’s setup correctly due to missing kernel-headers doesn’t sound too good to me (might be confusing to users). That said, pulling kernel-headers wouldn’t interfere with a possible Oracle virtualbox neither, needed anyways - whether Debian or Oracle (I’m sorry that I haven’t commented yet within the respective thread - I’m a bit busy the next week(s)).

I though keeping it as simple as possible for builders and keeping the reasoning as a reference in the footnotes would be best. Some of these explanations need to be quite long so they don’t sound stupid. If it was 1 short sentence, it would still require “see footnote for more”. What do you think?

Should we add GRUB and dkpg error from this post?
Yes.

That would be a known bug,a terrible one because it slows down the build a lot and should be fixed. Please refresh my mind, did I succeed fixing this in Whonix 8?

VirtualBox is a build dependency for non-bare-metal builds already. And must remain one for future --vbox build targets.

Please look at this git commit:

It should more or less cover your suggestion. With the only limitation, that it fails open. As the info message explains, I guess this is the best approach here. Please check.

Footnote is great. The point is to give the user something more than “Don’t worry about it” and 1 sentence+footnote is a good way.

I checked the 7.7.9.8 bare metal look and the message does not appear so it seems you did fix it.

It seems I was wrong and that this was not fixed.

Building 8.1 workstation

“sudo unable to resolve host debian”

Mostly fixed in 8.6.4.2 (which will eventually become Whonix 9 after a few more changes), except for https://github.com/Whonix/Whonix/blob/master/build-steps.d/2800_create-report - but I am not sure that build step is useful for bare metal users anyway.
