this is from when i was creating a chapter for it in the guide i work on a couple months ago. i don’t know if it’s with the latest version. additionally, another bug i forgot to mention was that the ability to even select omemo encryption in a chat window would sometimes be haphazard. the omemo icon simply wouldn’t display.
i have not reported these as bugs to the devs since i am not sure if it had something to do with the virtualbox environment i was experimenting with yet. as you may recall, i had a weird error where coyim and torbrowser appeared to be fighting with each other, and that was fixed by increasing the ram available to the workstation. if there is a strong desire to move to gajim, i can give it another round of experiments.

It took multiple tries running the command due to connection failure (Tor congestion). So maybe a comment should be made that re-running command might be necessary.
Using a non-torrified UpdateVM might also be needed if whonix-gw is the (broken, misconfigured…) template that is reinstalled. Instructions for both torified and non-torified are needed. Or maybe combined into a general - How to set UpdateVM?
I didn’t want to make a new thread but could you please create the Whonix ™ for macOS: Download and Installation page? I am happy to assist macOS users to the best of my ability and will start updating the macOS wiki as issues arise.
I’ve been working on Qubes/Reinstall manual method
The advantage of this method is, that it also works with non-Fedora based Qubes dom0 UpdateVMs, i.e. also with Debian based Qubes dom0 UpdateVMs.
Since automated method can use a torified UpdateVM should we have a manual method? Everything is covered in automated method section - Salt, DVM template, uninstall templates etc. Its a lot simpler IMO. Less chance of mistakes.
Maybe I’m missing something. Maybe more advanced users with prefer manual?
If legally possible, I guess so…
Could you remove please Copyright: and License?
I don’t think Apple or Oracle have any copyright on that page just for mentioning them. Claiming they have copyright where they didn’t invent anything may even be illegal.
For most pages Whonix copyright / licensing is already sorted in the page footer.
Unless otherwise noted, the content of this page is copyrighted and licensed under the same Libre Software license as Whonix itself. (Why?)
The format of the macOS wiki was based on the Whonix Computer Security Introduction wiki page
I am not sure headlines are enough creativity copyright wise to be protected by copyright. The Computer Security Education - Whonix says Whonix Computer Security Education wiki page Copyright (C) Amnesia <amnesia at boum dot org> but that page was rewritten / remixed so many times it’s hard to see what contents there still are by (C) Amnesia.
