Please post these pull requests somewhere in a ticket or the forum so others have a chance to follow the development.

Also, is this tested? Will it require any whonixcheck changes?

With these changes, what is the output of…



Good catch.

When disabling MSR the systemd-detect-virt output changes form “kvm” to “qemu”. This breaks the shared folder automatic mounting that relies on seeing “kvm” from virt-detect and also whonixcheck which only recognizes the hypervisor that way only.

I don’t think its worth the trouble and its best to rollback the commits.

I’ll also add this on the ticket.
