[quote=“Patrick, post:16, topic:756”]Tested using QEMU inside a VBox VM with Debian Jessie, because I don’t have a host with Debian Jessie at the moment. Therefore I cannot test KVM.
virsh -c qemu:///system start Whonix-Gateway
error: Failed to start domain Whonix-Gateway
error: unsupported configuration: host doesn't support paravirtual spinlocks
VM was bootable.
So I guess it should be removed for all QEMU xml files for better compatibly.[/quote]
But pvspinlock is supported on the newer libvirt in Jessie. Debian stable is almost Jessie. I will remove it of course if the problem still persists on Jessie. Are you saying that its not compatible with the qemu xmls only? To be clear here when I say qemu I am talking about the pure emulator mode and not kvm.
converting xml to qemu arguments works with me.[/quote]
Why you beletin me wiggy edits, holms? I had this same problem on Wheezy but when I edit the wiki with a link to this page the changes were not accepted. What are we supposed to do, go back to VirtualBox or upgrade to Jessie? I don’t know what “converting xml to qemu arguments” means. Does Whonix not support Wheezy anymore?
