This topic is to track tasks needed to implement host-side shared folders for KVM.
Incron install and config for auto permission adjustment.
shared folder help package additions
Status: Incron policy for permission command application upon certain file actions testing and working.
systemd service change to add a directory in the user’s home folder if it detects non-virtual environment. Will need to distinguish between Whonix-Host and Whonix Physical builds on x64 and ARM somehow since that would be irrelevant. @Patrick what if set it to look for a certain “this is Whonix-Host” file that’s only available in a Whonix Host build?
*Adding a shared folder device to Whonix-Workstation using virt-xml. DONE. User name needs to be variable scripted though.
Since the same directory location is readily available on host and guest this part of the package doesn’t need conditionals.
Only the part about pulling/sarting the incron package should be on the host. Is it possible to control whther a dependency gets pulled depending on the environment? Or maybe the incron daemon can be adjusted to only start when it detects it’s not virtualized.
Did you use “directly commit to git” using github web? I have no idea how to use that or how to make use of such commits (without manual copy/paste which would be besides the point and loose authorship and commit messages).
