Interesting. I wonder if there's any way to get rid of this problem other than changing it to pv virt_mode, changing the drivers, or reinstalling the hypervisor. I wonder if I should just give up HVM and try seeing if there are any templates of the OS I want for Qubes (probably not). -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
