I just noticed, but also doesn't seem to be a seamless mode setting neither in qvm-prefs or GUI VM-Settings, nor do they appear on HVM mode in case that would be a new thing or not. Could it be possible that it's related to the missing adjustments to allow booting from CD/DVD's? I mean, it does kind of look like no work has been done yet on pretty much everything related to 3rd party virtualization's. That's not a criticism though, it's more an interesting thing to observe. I wonder when it's planned to get all these various 3rd party tools back in Qubes. I know QWT is on hold for now until a developer is found, but what about all the rest Qubes features for 3rd party VM installations which lies more directly in the Qubes core dom0 code itself? -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
