Interested in making another OS as safe as Whonix Workstation is. Using Arch linux. Everything is clear except using sdwdate and uwt utilits. I can not install them, even using dpkg. Is there some files with .deb extension to install them using dpkg? Or is there any other solution?
I think using another systems as Whonix Workstation is popular and it will be a good idea to make it clear how to configure it. Especially I think sdwdate is necessary, because you can manually write 10.152.152.10 in program network connections, but time sync has a vulnerability. Or I am not right?
Thank you for attention.
P.S. As Qubes has no forum I will try to ask here: how can I install Qubes as a secret OS using true- or vera-crypt with puting boot sector on usb. So that you put in usb and Qubes loads. And if you don’t use usb your not secret OS loads.
You might want to build them from source instead? Or port them to Arch specific package format? Depending on if this is a personal or redistributable project?
Since I am not using arch linux, I know little about it. No idea how easy/hard it is to get a Debian deb working on Arch. uwt could be more difficult, because it depends on and internally uses config-package-dev.
The answer is “for a stable implementation, you must probably port it to become a native Arch package”. That’s not very helpful, I guess, since that is a development task. Due to time restraints, it won’t be possible for me to make the port. However, if there are specific technical questions regarding the port, I’ll try my best answering questions.
I knew only about github pages, there were no .deb packages. Thank you for the link! I really couldn’t find it myself.
It’s just a personal project. As I know nothing about porting, I have to try to install them with dpkg. Now I have deb packages, so I copy thew to /home, because so I don’t need to type the way to the file and type:
sudo dpkg -i uwt_3.1-1_amd64.deb
the mistake is:
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of uwt:
uwt depends on torsocks; however:
Package torsocks is not installed.
uwt depends on faketime; however:
Package faketime is not installed.
uwt depends on libc6 (>= 2.3.4); however:
Package libc6 is not installed.
dpkg: error processing package uwt (–install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
But the mistake is just the same, as if they have not been installed. No problems with installing packages before, they have installed without mistakes as well. I tried to reboot, but the mistake is the same.
Installing sdwdate also have the same mistakes with some packages, but there are more of them, so I type this.
Does anyone tried it? I think using another OS with Gateway is fare not a rare thing, does anyone had the same problems?
P.S. I understand that it’s easier to install debian, but I need arch tools.
I’m just an ordinary user, not a programmer and don’t understand in porting, but if I can be useful I’ll try, cause I like whonix.
P.S. I don’t think this work is useless, cause many people use other os with whonix. There are a lot of instructions how to use kali or parrot, for example. Don’t know what for, cause it’s easy to install kali tools in debian. The majority just doesn’t think about sdwdate and uwt.
I hope once whonix will use multiple os, lightweight to put gateway on mobile and such as arch and gentoo for workstation to use on pc.
