I grabbed the 126.96.36.199.4-libvirt.xz files for the gateway and the workstation.
(1.) When I start the Gateway VM it starts fine.
(2.) But when I start the Workstation VM from the Virtual Machine Manager, I get a pop-up error in the VM saying VirtualBox kernel not running. Exiting. Sometimes that pop-up error is repeated. Then I get a screen asking me to login. Sometimes when I type in my password, it just comes back to that same screen repeatedly.
(3.) Normally though, once I type in my password, both the Gateway and the Workstation VM’s along with the Virtual Machine Manager all disappear. When I go to open the Virtual Machine Manager again, it shows both VM’s as running. When I open each VM window, they are running. However, in the Workstation VM, there is a KDESudo warning box stating: No command arguments supplied! Usage: kdesudo [ -u ] KdeSudo will now exit. Once I press OK, that box closes. Not sure why that window is opening as I made no use of kdesudo.
Finally, I am experiencing intermittent high cpu load with Whonix 14. I also notice that scrolling in Tor Browser is slow and even stops at times.
I am running on a 64-bit Debian Stretch host system. I have KVM and all associated files up to date on this system. I have also applied sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade to both VM’s to get them up to date. Any insights into these issues will be appreciated.
