I wouldn't change too much in that file, just the absolute minimum. To edit the xml file and remove the devices assigned to sys-net, look for lines like <device backend-domain="dom0" id="xxxxxx"/> in the sys-net section - delete those lines. MAKE SURE you have a copy of that file somewhere safe before editing. Then restart - sys-net should start but wont be stealing the usb devices. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
