Problem with running Whonix on Fedora 21

Hi,

This is first time I’m working with Virtual Machine Manager, before that I was worked with Oracle Virtual Machine.
I downloaded 2 files form Whonix.org:

1- Whonix-Gateway-11.0.0.3.0.libvirt
2- Whonix-Workstation-11.0.0.3.0.libvirt

after that I clicked on Virtual Machine Manager => NewVM => Import existing disk image and imported the Whonix-Gateway-11.0.0.3.0.libvirt
Am I doing wrong on something?
Finally showed me this:

Please help me about it.

Thanks

Good day,

you seem to have overseen, that you’ve to extract the archives before using them, otherwise the .libvirt at the end of the filenames would make little to no sense. Please look at this for instructions on how to properly extract the files to get the necessary .xml images: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/KVM#Decompress

Have a nice day,

Ego

Yes you have to decompress first like Ego said but you need to import some VM definition files with command line. Please follow the instructions on the wiki.

Good day to you too :slight_smile:

My problem solved…

Thanks

Yes HulaHoop, I followed the the instructions and my problem solved now

Thanks you

I working with Whonix on VirtMachin well, but how can I increase the RAM amount on Workstation OS?

Good day,

simple. Just click on the light bulb (or I in case of Debian-based systems), directly under “Virtual Machine”, to change whichever settings you like.

Ego thanks again, but I increased the Workstation ram amount to 2048 but still when I want working with it’s slow motion on display I don’t have this problem on Oracle VM even my amount on that is 764MB. where’s the problem you think?
Thanks Ego :slight_smile:

Good day,

which setting are you using under “Processor” and “Video Cirrus”?

Ok, I changed the video model from QXL to Cirrus but Whonix Workstation not even boot anymore just showing me terminal!!!

Don’t change the video settings.

Ok, may I ask you why and what can I do for lagging on screen?

You will get worse performance. I am working to resolve the lag problems mentioned in other threads.

Thank you, may I use Oracle Virtual Box temperately or I can’t trust it?

The other topic with information on how to fix slowness is here:

https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,1454.0.html

The instruction mentioned there on disabling “Surfaces” worked successfully for me and at least two other users, to dramatically speed up Whonix 11 to pretty much normal Linux speed.
