this only happened before I converted the vm into a dvm. after converting to dvm, clicking yes does nothing.
appvm says “tor is not bootstrapped”
dvm does nothing after clicking yes to download tor browser.
[root@dom0 ~]$ qvm-prefs whonix-14-dvm netvm
i have whonixvms: sys-whonix, sys-whonix-14, whonix-ws, whonix-gw, whonix-14-ws and whonix-14-gw.
the whonix-14 vms were made by upgrading whonix vms as per
i think this is a qubes issue. it does not make sense that default anon-whonix would work after changing netvm and template, but new vm will not run torbrowser.
to be clear: netvm is always sys-whonix or sys-whonix-14
and template is always whonix-ws or whonix-14-ws
i had idea. i thought to make a copy of anon-whonix, which was original vm from install but changed netvm and template. it always worked.
make copy of it and convert it to dvm using qubes commands:
[user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-prefs anon-whonix template_for_dispvms True
[user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-features anon-whonix appmenus-dispvm 1
first i tried to change my whonix-ws-dvm to netvm and template whonix-14’s.
yesterday, doing this gave errors from above. today, this works.
i have 4 whonix-##-appvms. whonix-ws-dvm, whonix-14-dvm, anon-whonix and anon-whonix-14.
-anon-whonix works with whonix 14 and 13. (netvm and template) (default qubes installed)
-anon-whonix-14 does not work with whonix 13 or 14… I installed this.
-whonix-ws-dvm works with both 13 and 14. (but it did not work with 14 yesterday? maybe i am mistaken…) (default qubes installed)
-whonix-14-dvm works with 13 but not 14. (i made this one)
anything above that “does not work” is saying “tor browser not installed/download with tor downloader by whonix”
very strange. completely random. i am very sure that my netvms and template are set correctly.
all in all… whonix-ws-dvm works now, so i do not need further assistance. i can work with that. i should be able to make a copy of it instead of making one.
correct. making a copy of whonix-ws-dvm allows whonix-14-dvm…
