Trying to install Whonix by using Virtualbox. But having some issues.
Installing the Gateway works fine, the updates and upgrades are complete. But installing the Workstation is a problem. When starting the Workstation it freezes when the system is booting. The only solution is to restart the host computer.
I’m not sure what more information I should give to solve this problem. Please lead me here.
For start, fixing the issue you just posted above + getting Debian KDE running in a virtualizer. That would give you basic knowledge. And help to find out if Whonix is causing these issues, which is unlikely, because such reports are rare. Or you would happen to fix the underlying issue, which might be unrelated to Whonix, more likely.
Ever since Whonix 10~11 (can’t remember exactly, I’ve been having the same problem! of workstation freezing up completely. I downloaded the latest ~ova’s, imported them into Virtualbox. Applied latest updates/upgrades, installed TOR browser. I can start the workstation and use Firefox browser w/o any problem. But, happens EVERY time, when I start the TOR browser within seconds to minutes the workstation completely freezes requiring reset. The gateway is unaffected. I can run other applications w/o the freeze - eg: synaptic, emacs, etc. Only TOR browser seems to trigger this problem.
I don’t have another Debian machine to try this with. I’ve run TOR browser standalone, also via proxy and over JonDo w/o any problem.
