I tried to install kali again. Last time I couldnt get it to run, but with your help, I correctly created an HVM. Now I did something stupid.
When partitioning, you will be shown 3 virtual drives. If you type 'pvs' (or is it 'lvs'?) into the dom0 terminal, you will see 3 virtual partitions: kali, kali-private and kali-root. Or something of the like. I assume that is the 3 that you see in the kali-vm in qubes-manager. Well, one is obviously my rootfs and one is my homedir. The third has a direct correlation with the homedir. So when you change the size of the homedir, so changes the other one. The bug I think I have found is that when this third partition vm, if overwritten, overwrites dom0 from a virtual domain. I tried to install kali on this third vm and the next time I booted Qubes, errors were given that qubes-manager did not exist. I still could boot, but no VMs could start. Its possible that this could have something to do with loop devices and having too many of them, maybe a buffer overflow? But I doubt it. After starting kali repeatedly, loop devices were made again and again eventually denying me any RAM space to do anything including saving a text doc. Now, I really dont want to reinstall everything but sometimes this is much faster than troubleshooting the issue. But does anyone have any good ideas? Ive downloaded the source code for qubes-manager and Im going to try tomorrow to compile it. But Ive never done this before, I dont know what all I have to do. $ sudo make rpms , right? Then what? Im going to have to boot into recovery mode just to get the qubes-manager onto the machine. Can I do $ sudo dnf reinstall qubes-manager? or $ qubes-dom0-update --reinstall qubes-manager? What if I cant get internet access? Is the rpm still on my machine? Thanks many!! -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
