First time around I just want to get setup and had trouble initially with the kvm way but so I just ended up going with virtualbox but I want to figure the kvm way properly now for the reasons stated in the wiki- that is is properly FOSS- and I prefer its more stripped down nature in general. I now have the time and inclination to getting it cracked. I have used kvm in the past but have just used it via making my own shell scripts with the commands to run a vm, not using virsh.
I actually prefer that way but I guess it would not be practical here since the virsh xml files contain a lot of the setup info? and it would be cirtcuitous to do it that way for setting the gateway and workstation up?
Also can I do cli-gateway and xfce-worstation because I think it is superfluous to have a desktop for the gateway since it is not used.
My general philosophy is in line with linux philosophy of most simple and efficient so it was good to see that xfce was being considered to replace kde.
Where should I get the latest downloads for cli-gateway and whonix-xfce? and corresponding info on how to setup?
Also regarding encryption, would you need to setup an encrypted partition and just setup kvm within that? rather than there just being a simple switch like in virtualbox for kvm which deals with encryption?
