[qubes-users] Can't BkUp? Error: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xd0 in position 0: ordinal not in range (128)?

2016-10-04 Thread gaikokujinkyofusho
I was trying to back up a VM (a single VM if it matters) to a external drive 
that I had mounted in one of the appvms which I have done in 3.1 with no 
problems but here I got the following error:

Error: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xd0 in position 0: ordinal not in range 
(128)

not sure what to make of it?

It's hard to say what's wrong without installation logs -- they're
created in %temp% (by default \AppData\Local\Temp), text

This seems like poor Tor circuit. Isn't this firefox in a VM connected through

what do you think of this to manage online identities? 
https://www.grc.com/sqrl/sqrl.htm 

It looks interesting, but again you still need at least a "master" password.  I 
guess this is nice in the sense that there is no other passwords in a database 
for a hacker to steal,  like in a password manager or site 
data...cough...yahoo...cough.

I use acronymns to help remember the long disk encryption passwd and long 
master keepassx.  I don't memorize anything else and change my passwds every 90 
days.   I use a short easy to remember passwords for bios,  and qubes login 
user, since I don't consider them as important. 

I tell my family to also write down their main passwords in a safe place at 
home. I feel if someone is worried about people breaking in, like an episode of 
mr. robot, then there is more important things they should be worried about,  
like cameras and mics and other devices hidden in walls, desks and ceilings, or 
BIOS malware lol  AEM helps to detect if machine was tampered with. 

For someone that travels alot  with alot of diff devices  I
 guess you can remember one device encryption passwd, and load the usb stick 
you wear around your neck  on it to get the passwds for the other devices in 
keepassx?  I wouldn't bother memorizing the passwds for the 2 backup disks and 
online backup account.  If you can thats great.  again acronymns help.  I have 
a laptop with a long encryption i made for my 7 year old niece.  It looks like 
nonsense 14 characters (letters numbers specials diff cases) but its actually a 
whole saying from a children's book and easy to remember.

Yes -- like a lot of race conditions, it happens more often when the
system is under heavy load.  I see this behavior more often when
starting/stopping multiple VM's at once, or when the system is otherwise
under heavy CPU or I/O load.

are you typing this in an appvm or an hvm?   how much memory left in dom0 shown 
in the qubes-manager, if mine goes under 1700mb i can start lagging.

strange,  type xlinfo in dom0 terminal and see all your ram is recognized.  how 
much ram?   

besides top, you can try xentop in dom0 terminal to see cpu use from the diff 
vms.  maybe something hogging the cpu?

unplug all usb devices,  try a diff keyboard?  are you using a sys-usb for your 
keyboard?

happened to me a couple times,  when I tried to restart sys-usb and shut down 
sys-net at the same time.  Sys-usb would fail to start ask me to kill it,  
saying there is a possible bug in qubes manager.

 Now I just wait for sys-net to fully shutdown, wait a sec and then restart 
sys-usb and haven't had the issue.

I too am getting this error, however this error did not occur when I tried to 
install the same version from the same .iso a few weeks ago. The only

I'll let you know if anything bad happens, but as of now nothing seems

For mich I do not see any request to kill the AppVM and the uptime of the VM is 
very low. for example 50 minutes when I was testing the function to try and get 
it to error.

I can confirm that I encountered this today.  It was with a VM that had
been running for several days.  I've encountered the same error (or one
similar to it) in the past when trying to shut down a VM that takes a
long time -- Qubes Manager asks me if I want to kill it, and if I say
yes, sometimes there's some apparent race condition and the error comes
up (I guess because the VM finished shutting down right before Qubes
Manager tried to kill it).

Cheers,

The minimal template is great! Had the same issue: 
https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/2018

I can't test F24 but I assume that usbVM still has a perl dependency since the 
issue is still open. 
(sudo dnf install perl)

You may optionally want to install qubes-input-proxy-sender as well.

I am using an older version of Enigmail as during the time Split GPG and

split gpg on qubes was offering gpg1.

If I want to upgrade my enigmail to the latest is there anything I need to do

Some unscientific testing.




Trying a restart after 15 minutes of not doing a restart and the function works 
as expected




Trying a restart after 50 minutes of not doing a restart and the function fails 
the first time with the error as mentioned previously.

Thank you for the tip, I forget indeed to try this. But I found an easier 
solution as those drivers for Debian were considered as "outdated" by the 
manufacturer (confirmed xd it took me a lot of time to make them work :S) : to 
go for a Linux distro on where they were still implemented by developpers : )

So I just installed Ubuntu and they worked fine, took me 5mn to install and 
lower down DPI :)

Well so once again, really sorry having went on this full paranoid mode and 
talking shit about Qubes, thinking my HDD was hijacked or smth wtf.. So stupid 
and bad mannered from me... Unfortunately it comes from a previous rootkit 
experience on Windows so I suppose now when I see something kinda suspicious 
like an USB refusing to boot, I react like this, which isn't adapted at all.

I hope it's cool and that I didn't hurt anyone. Even though this ipv6 port 
listening surprised me, I will keep using Qubes as it is a great OS and the 
work done here by developpers is just awesome. Documentation is also clear and 
well written. I also like the fact it comes with Debian + Xfce, which is imo 
the best destktop manager on Linux. Simple, elegant, and still greatly 
customizable : ) I find it better than the current Ubuntu default desktop 
manager I just discovered, but I guess everyone has its own preferences ^^
But yea first I really want to try out Unix BSD as when you are running Linux 
since few months you might want to discover where everything started : )

Bye and thank you again for your help on closing ipv6 on Debian, I hope it 
might help someone else not willing to have it enabled (for now... as we will 
all have to use it within time !)

But I am think that I just checking with anyone who has experience with XFCE + 
Qubes to make sure there is not some sort of compatibility issue by using such 
a app and how Qubes interacts with the application menu.

[qubes-users] QVM Manager restart fails periodically

2016-10-04 Thread cubit
Hello

I am testing the new "restart" feature in the Qubes VM Manager and noticing 
that it is a bit buggy.   There is one piece of the puzzle however that I can 
not figure out allowing me to replicate it consistently or narrow down why it 
fail some times

The first time I  select a VM and press "restart"  after an indeterminate time 
frame the restart will fail with the error below.   If I try and restart any 
number of other vm immediately after they will all restart ok.

error: 

  ---
  line: assert not vm.is_running() 
  func: start_vm
  line no.: 1158
  file: /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/qubesmanager/main.py

To be precise: Qubes signs both, the iso and the digest.
