I just installed from Whonix-CLI-184.108.40.206.3.ova
I get spam on the current tty, 20 times after boot:
timesync Error: vgsvcTimeSyncWorker: VbglR3GetHostTime failed; rc2=VERR_NOT_SUPPORTED
I’m using VirtualBox 5.2.32 is that a problem?
It seems to know what time it is even without a network connection. So I’m not sure what it means but if it’s not supported the first time it probably won’t be supported the next 19 times
I’m using VirtualBox because that’s what the download page points to but I’m thinking of switching to KVM.
This can be safely ignored.
What’s happening is that virtualbox-guest-utils is asking VirtualBox for the time. Which is blocked as per Whonix default VirtualBox VM settings.
Previously this was disabled inside the VM too through pacakge https://github.com/Whonix/vbox-disable-timesync but this was recently disabled since it causes more issues than it does good. This error message we have to live with but it doesn’t break anything.
