Whonix gateway randomly stopped working

Hi, my whonix gateway randomly gave this error.

## who_ami: whonixcheck 
## identifier: 
## exit_code: 0 
## error_cause: error_handler signal ERR detected with BASH_COMMAND: chmod 700 "$TEMP_DIR"

There was another error box with command “makedir temp” or something similar. Sorry caught me off-guard so I just restarted the virtual machine without thinking and didn’t grab verbose output :frowning:

Now I can’t start the machine at all, it’s giving me this: https://linx.li/sxzujdir.png

Welcome to Whonix forums and thank you for your question!

Looks like a virtual hard drive failure.

  • Either trash the VM and re-import it. OR
  • Try fix the virtual hard drive file system issue. Make a backup before you start in case any important data there. We don’t have documentation how to fix file system corruption yet.
    You could try to fix it as per https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Free_Support_Principle since there is nothing Whonix specific about that issue or maybe someone else can assist with that.
