[Help Welcome] KVM Development - staying the course

https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Dev/KVM#Nested_Virtualization needs update since linux-image-amd64 is installed by default now in Whonix 14.

Overlooked it’s on the /Dev sub page so make that priority wishlist.

New section added: KVM builds, upload, and call for testers required.

Small chance for regression.

Deleted from FAQ since I guess no longer true?

When Whonix is used in combination with [[KVM]], [Dynamic memory management dynamic memory management] of the RAM overhead might be a non-issue. By manually enabling these features it is possible to immediately profit. Eventually, a later Whonix release where [[KVM]] is in use might enable this by default.

Right. All these features are disabled for security.

https://www.whonix.org/wiki/KVM#Download_Whonix still needs update.

Yes I know, but I am waiting for instructions to upload to sf.


Please remove from script used to build Whonix:

WHONIX_APT_REPOSITORY_OPTS='--enable --repository stable'

And as replacement, whenever a line says:


Keep the --build but add also the following switch:


I.e. it should look like this:

--build --redistribute

After booting Whonix, please check that Whonix stable (buster!) repository is enabled and apt-get update is functional.

(This was required because of this.)

Whonix 15 build testing can start as per

However, functionality wise, it will take some more time.

Could you please port https://www.whonix.org/wiki/KVM and https://www.whonix.org/wiki/KVM/Installation_Screenshots to be using CodeSelect rather than pre tags? That would help using wiki templates.

A series of scripts for downloading, verifying, and installing KVM Whonix on Debian. - juxtin/install-whonix

Did we ever see this one? I don’t remember? Wondering why its author never contacted us?

(It’s gpg verification code might be unsafe in fully automated scripts. -> Should use https://github.com/Whonix/gpg-bash-lib style.)
