Whonix-Gateway default RAM is currently set to 768 MB.
(Whonix-Workstation default RAM is currently set to 2048 MB.)
During upgrade Whonix-Gateway freezes. Not totally. But it looks frozen. The seconds on the clock stay at the same number for several minutes. This happens during module building (VirtualBox guest additions) as well as kernel header package upgrade. During that time, Tor running on Whonix-Gateway is not accessible from Whonix-Workstation.
Hence, I plan to re-vitalize swap-file-creator. I couldn’t find out why it was previously removed from installation by default. Once swap-file-creator is running, this issue is gone. (A small fix for buster was required.)
This is about Non-Qubes-Whonix only since Qubes-Whonix has dynamic RAM assignment (and higher system requirements).
Could you please review / improve this line? @HulaHoop
