Sorry for late reply, I missed your post until now. Wait, you installed RC-1 and updated to RC-4? The developers explicitedly recommend not to do this, and reinstall between RC-1 and RC-2. You can find this info in the release cycles for RC-2. But it should be no problem to upgrade from RC-2 to RC-3 and RC-4, though as memory serves there are some bits of extra information to take notice of in the RC-4 upgrade. It could be you run into some of these issues because if updated up from RC-1. There are some good quick approaches to get a list while you include and exclude backup VM's. The most straight forward is to simply execute the qvm backup command prematurely, which prints two lists in the terminal, which are all those included and all those excluded, right before asking Yes/No to proceed. If it doesn't look right, just press "N" for no, and return to adjust your qvm-backup/qvm-backup-restore command for whichever to exclude or include. You can also open a second terminal window and run qvm-ls. A third approach is to use the Qubes Manager, but I prefer not to use it. I listed these approaches in the order I prefer my self. The first one I mentioned is my favorite as its straight forward. I only use qvm-ls if I have a lot of VM's to exclude or include. By executing it prematurely, you easily get two lists that makes it easy to get an overview. - - - - I'm not sure if the dvm you report as a bug is actually a bug, and not a feature? It might be Qubes adjusting and fixing old settings to current settings. dvm's, as far as I know anyway, being temporary VM's and all, hold no information on their own, so you can easily make new ones. I think it might be removed because dvm's has changed and been updated in Qubes 4 to allow any VM to have a dvm version, rather than just one like in Qubes 3.2. So it may just be Qubes autoadjusting itself. But I wouldn't know, it's guessing on my part at this point. But if dvm is all there is, then I wouldn't worry, though it would be nice with a more official explanation of course. For example if this could happen to a non dvm, then it gets a whole lot more scary all of a sudden, but at this point, it's hard to tell which it is for sure. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
