Recommendations for installing Whonix on Libreboot?


#1

Hello, I have an old Thinkpad T400 with Libreboot and Trisquel 7 installed. I have read that virtualbox may not work (I havent tried it yet).

Can anyone recommend what VM I can use to run Whonix on this setup?


#2

Whonix is known to work on the following hypervisors: Qubes (Xen), KVM, and VirtualBox. I don’t know how well any of them are supported on Trisquel.

The T400 can apparently run the current version of Qubes 3.2. (HCL). However, lack of EPT/SLAT support on the Core 2 Duo will not allow it to run the soon-to-be-released Qubes 4.0. Version 3.2 will be supported for one year after the release of 4.0. Also, keep in mind that Qubes is based on a Fedora dom0 so that may disqualify it for you.
