Whonix on Mac M1 (ARM)

I am trying to build the whonix-gateway-cli flavor with utm target. I get this error

clang: error: argument unused during compilation: '-fstack-clash-protection' [-Werror,-Wunused-command-line-argument]

I am using a freshly install arm64 debian bullseye VM in UTM and the command:

sudo ~/Whonix/whonix_build --flavor whonix-gateway-cli --target utm --repo true --arch arm64 --build

What am I doung wrong?

EDIT:
Forgot to mention I am using 16.0.2.6-developers-only tag

Stupid question. Can I just use gcc to compile with an options somewhere? It seems that clang may have a bug in version 11 that causes this.

Probably the hardened-malloc package failing to build? That’s “amd64” only anyhow. Nothing else requires clang. I’ll work on disabling hardened-malloc building for non-“amd64” builds.

Is this https://github.com/Whonix/Whonix/commit/6d5fad54c6eba1a9f8ad71d5be26b9a79b27d9d3 the fix for the hardened-malloc you mentioned?

If so, are there any security considerations in building the images from master or should I wait for a new tag?

I attempted a build from master and ran into this error.

Sorry, bad form I forgot the important info

commit 5c85057be9c5e0244b2120be8efd28edfd0511f2 (grafted, HEAD → master, origin/master, origin/HEAD)

Actually should compile on arm64.

OK, I was able to successfully build 16.0.2.8-developers-only for the UTM target.

The VMs seem to run and function fine except for downloading the tor browser.
When I run update-torbrowser I get the following error:
ERROR: Failed to download: https://sourceforge.net/projects/tor-browser-ports/files/10.5.6/sha256sums-unsigned-build.txt.asc/download

Independent upstream. See:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/tor-browser-ports/files/

The only source of Tor Browser arm64 builds as far as we’re aware.

That file was that file was only uploaded 4 hours ago so it might be functional by now.

Yep, it works now. I always get things at the wrong time.

I got this the first time I tried to update, but figured the timeout would expire. It has reset multiple times now. Do I just need to leave it running for a day and then update it, or is it something else?

Check clock.

Yep, swdate doesn’t seem to be working. Where can I find the logs to troubleshoot?

Check the clock. Is it off by that amount of time?

Yes it is and I found this line in the swdate logs

/bin/bash: line 1: 796 Bad system call (core dumped) addgroup sdwdate systemd-journal

On further inspection it seems that the UTM app is using my local timezone as the hardware clock time. I will see if I can configure it otherwise.

Insufficient.

Another secomp issue?

Sorry I edited the post and found that UTM is passing my local timezone time to the hardware clock. Also, here is the info you asked for regarding the error line I posted.

OK, I added the line -rtc base=utc to the qemu commands in UTM and the clock was able to synchronize. I still see the error in the logs that I posted above, but for comparison I will paste the successful log results below.

I would like to make a suggestion about the current functioning of swdate. When the time is an hour or more different from the UTC time, I do not believe it should only be considered a warning. I would ask that you make it an error that does not allow a tor connection, or at least put a big red warning sign that it could compromise your anonymity when swdategui loads.

Also happening for me. Unrelated.

/lib/systemd/system/sdwdate.service

## required for anondate which uses journalctl
## group systemd-journal might not exist yet during the build process.
## addgroup is a debianism
ExecStartPre=/bin/bash -c 'addgroup sdwdate systemd-journal || true'

Should be fixed but not an actual issue here.

That is really complex. Not your suggestion but overall secure network time synchronization design is really complex.

This chapter might explain it best.

To discuss this further, please open a dedicated forum thread for that or use sdwdate and sdwdate-gui development thread.

That should probably be the default.

Funny thing, it is the default in Qemu according to what I read, and there is not mention of the setting in the UTM plist file for Whonix to change it. I guess it is something UTM changed in their code for the bundled qemu helper?

Will look at the info for swdate you linked, thank you.
