I noticed the problem a few days ago. The log is not during boot, is after boot. Tried to restart sdwdate, reboot the Workstation, tried with another fresh Workstation, still same error: “Tor is not yet fully bootstrapped. Tor circuit: not established.”
Then maybe is something wrong with the Whonix Gateway. I don’t know how to troubleshoot the problem and I asked if somebody else have this problem. The clock seems to be synced, but again sdwdate shows that the circuit is not established.
It is the last log. Also the icon from sdwdate is with a orange circle and stays with orange forever.
Not sure if this is related or not. Recently had an issue with sys-whonix throwing a similar time sync error and like the OP it it was not causing any connectivity issues. Wasn’t able to narrow down the problem but it was a new VM with every advanced config in the wiki so its hard to tell what caused the issue. Could have been a slow entry guard.
For more perspective, I created a sys-whonix VM that day for each torified client and only had that 1 sys-whonix throwing that error.
Onioncircuits does not work in live mode. To make it work I used the 3 commands above. After using the 3 command above the problem described in this thread appeared.
Now I tried with a fresh Gateway entered the commands and the problem did NOT appeared. In conclusion, I can’t figure out what caused it, but now is working.
Whonix 15 KVM
I will keep an eye to see if this appears again. The Gateway was with no modifications prior to 3 commands to make onioncircuits work on live mode, thats why I thought maybe is related.
