I’ve been trying to install Whonix on my PC running Linux Mint 20.3 (Cinnamon) for some days but haven’t been able to figure out what the problem is. It might have something to do with sparse files but I have no idea how to go about fixing the issue. Can’t find any fixes online.
Basically the problem arises when running the tar command on the archive file. It starts extracting and keeps doing the process until my disk is full and it can’t go on anymore. Each of the .qcow2 files go over a 100gb
The terminal goes as follows.
tar -xvf Whonix*.libvirt.xz
tar: Whonix-Workstation-XFCE-220.127.116.11.Intel_AMD64.qcow2: Cannot write: No space left on device
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
Thanks for the response in advance!
