No, Qubes 4 I was told would require certain functionality in the CPU. I even read it on the Qubes website. Part of the CPU vulnerability remedy for RAM access and the page sharing vulnerabilities. Qubes 4 was supposed to not work on anything except CPUs that have that. And that was some technology only implemented in CPUs that came out in late 2016 early 2017 and beyond. That is what I was told about Qubes 4, therefore it would not run on my older CPUs. This is what the makers of Qubes informed me of. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
