I recently got the notice when I booted up my whonix gateway that it’s release, 188.8.131.52.9 wasn’t supported, so I downloaded and tried to install ver 184.108.40.206, but am having problems.
First it told me that ver 16 wouldn’t work on my Virtualbox ver, so I tried to update that and found that for some reason it wouldn’t work on my version of linux mint. So after a lot of fun I got Mint upgraded, then upgraded VB, and now am finally back to trying to get ver16 of whonix to work.
When I start up either the gateway or the workstation it runs for about a minute, and I have a black box that says “/dev/sdai: clean, 111732/655536000 files, 1341314/25213632 blocks”, and it just hangs there.
When I look in the logs I can see things like this:
VMMDev: Guest Log: 16:17:25.819601 main vbglRGuestCtrlDetectPeekGetCancelSupport: Not Supported (#3)
timesync Error: vgsvcTimeSyncWorker: VbglR3GetHostTime failed; rc2=VERR_NOT_SUPPORTED
VMMDev: Guest Log: Failed to get display change request, rc=VERR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED
Service Terminated Abnormally with VERR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED
Those are all the errors that I can see that look like obvious errors.
I’ve compared all of the settings for the Ver 16 machines to the 15 versions, and the settings are exactly the same, (those boot fine, but give me the deprecated warning).
I’ve also tried playing with the ver 16 settings to add a little more vram, scale factor and even tried enabling 3d acceleration, but no luck. Same with all the system settings.
Just for giggles and grins I blew away the new ver 16 machines, then redownloaded whonix and reimported the appliance, but that didn’t help either.
Is there anything I have to do to the Mint OS to get ver 16 to work? Or is there anything else fundamentally different about ver 16 that I need to do differently?
Thanks for any and all help!
