Workstation and Gateway boot up problem.

Hi I am having this error pop up every time I try to start Whonix Workstation or Gate if the other is running as well;

I am running Parrot Security OS it is based on Debian and it comes with QEMU and KVM already installed so I haven’t had to install it, not sure if this causes the problem?

Any help or ideas as to how to fix this would be great, thanks.

The problem you are seeing was a bug that I saw during the Stretch testing cycle but is now gone when stabilized.

The problem is that Parrot OS is not using Debian Stable but is a franken distro. From what I understand (and I assume the wiki page wasn’t updated after Stretch’s release) they use Debian Testing and a custom kernel - which makes bugs hard to track down and fix. If you need stability please use vanilla Debian stable.

Parrot is based on Debian’s testing branch (stretch), with a custom Linux 4.9 kernel. It follows a rolling release development model.

Yeah I figured it would be something along those lines but hoped it wasnt lol, thanks for the response.
