Is that a fresh sys-whonix, or it used whonix-gw (13) template before? I’ve seen similar problem when migrating from whonix 13.


#4

On fresh install it works for me.


#5

fresh install


#6

i figured it out , the graphical uninstallation of previous sys-whonix didnt really happen so well from Qubes manager.

what happened is:

  • sys-whonix removed graphically from Qubes manager.
  • Qubes thought it has been deleted
  • i installed new whonix , the old sys-whonix just popped-up (tricked me as i thought it is the new one)
  • Qubes thought as well it did the command purpose of installing sys-- whonix based on new Whonix-gw-template (the fact its still based on the old whonix-gw-template)
  • errors happened as above

Issues/Solutions:

  • Graphical uninstall should give the same effect of manual uninstallation.(qvm-remove …)
  • sudo qubesctl state.sls qvm.whonix-ws-14-dvm, should be have some sanity about the existed templates/vms from old builds or new builds.

i dunno if these are the ideal solutions , but thats what happened with me.


Solution to my problem above:

in dom0 terminal:

qvm-remove sys-whonix

then repeat whonix installation command

sudo qubesctl state.sls qvm.whonix-ws-14-dvm


#7

Other issues:

  • whonix-gw-appvm which are based on the old whonix 14, will not be able to be connect to the internet due to the same issue that i mentioned above. (so you need to delete every old gw-14 appvms and create new one based on the current testing whonix-14-gw appvms)

  • previous whonixes , when you create new whonix-apppvm there was a service in the settings of the appvm called “meminfo-writer”. this one seems to be disappeared with the current testing builds.(i need to write it manually then it will pop-up then i press on :heavy_plus_sign: sign to add it back)

  • Old based vms on whonix-14 , will not save their data.true the whonix-ws-xxx.appvm which is based on the stable/old whonix will still in the qubes manager, but it will not keep containing the same data (emails,chat , texts …etc all will be erased).

Edit: only emails/mails + plugins (torbirdy+enigmail) with Thunderbird will be lost.

  • Qubes Manager/Whonix Bug:

pressing on “Refresh application” inside whonix-ws-appvm which is taking its connection from whonix-gw-appvm NOT sys-whonix, it will ignore that and open sys-whonix EVEN though whonix-ws network isnt based on sys-whonix appvm.

#8

Feature Request:

  • Every Whonix-ws-appvm created from whonix-ws-template the firewall should be set on limit outgoing connection (or if there is prevent outgoing connection better) as we dont need connection within the WS at all. but only from GW-appvm.

#9

No more testing required! (New testers-only release coming soon!)


#10

Summary:

Workaround for now:

thread:

6 posts were split to a new topic: cannot change Qubes keyboard layout


#17

better to close this topic , as now no one can install this testing version (only the new upgraded one)
