[qubes-users] using non-default dispvms in 4.0

2017-09-28 Thread Joshua Thayer
Hi, I'm trying to use non-default disposable VMs in Qubes 4.0 and
running in to problems. My dom0 and AppVM templates are up to date with
the testing repos as of today.

My understanding from reading documentation and various mailing list
threads is that in Qubes 4.0 it should be possible to specify a template
to use when using disposable VMs using a syntax like:

    $ qvm-open-in-vm '$dispvm:kitten-dvm' ./cute-kitten.jpg

Assuming a VM named `kitten-dvm` exists on your system, and it has its
`template_for_dispvms` pref set to True via `qvm-prefs`, and the
appropriate policy is set in `/etc/qubes-rpc/policy/qubes.OpenInVM`...
in this case:

    $anyvm '$dispvm:kitten-dvm' allow

However, I consistently get "Request refused" when running the example
`qvm-open-in-vm` command above even when using the target_vmname
`$dispvm:fedora-25-dvm`.

Any help understanding how to use the new-style dispvm specification
would be appreciated!

Hi Joh,

I found quite a few bits and pieces of VMs lying around when looking at 
how to recover VMs from my previous install. This might take a while, 
but you can run the following commands in a root terminal session on dom0:


# cd /

# grep -r  * 2>/dev/null

No guarantees, and be careful what you remove/edit, but it's worth a shot.

Ron

Re: [qubes-users] How to check total storage used by VM?

2017-09-28 Thread 'One7two99' via qubes-users
Hello Jerry,

> Now if I alotted in the vm itself 125gb and it shows 53gb then
> that extra space is still there or is it actually holding 125?

storage space is thin provisioned as such your App-VMs will grow over time.
You can check the available space with

df -h

Please keep in mind that you have several layers:

Physical Harddrive / SSD
Partitions
LUKS Encryption
LVM

LVM consists of:
LVM PV Physical Volumes (command: pvdisplay)
LVM VG Volume Groups (command: vgdisplay)
LVM LV Logical Volumes (command: lvdisplay)

This offers lots of flexibility but also raises complexity.
You could have only 10 GB physical free space on you drive, while a virtual 
machine with a thin provisioned drive could fool you that there is plenty free 
space available.

Thank you for the tip, I've watched some i3 videos and it looks good.
I'll give it a try. Just for info, the installation of i3 is possible via

sudo qubes-dom0-update i3 i3-settings-qubes

Thank you cooloutac

-Is this a vm
It happens in Templates and VMs.

-Is this a vm, if so do we really care if systemd is running in it?
The problem is when i enable SELINUX VMs/templates doesn't "boot" or fail to 
start.
If I disable SELINUX, the templates/VMs start whithout problems and systemd is 
activated.

-You sure thats selinux?
Yes i'm pretty sure, it's exactly the same config that i had in fedora24.
In dom0
qvm-prefs -s fedora-25 kernelopts "nopat security=selinux selinux=1"
and in VMs/Templats
/etc/selinux/config

SELINUX=enforcing
SELINUXTYPE=targeted

Default selinux config

-what does sestatus say?
I can't execute anything in template/VMs
in dom0:
qvm-run fedora-25 --nogui -pass-io -u root "sestatus"
Error(fedora-25): Domain 'fedora-25':qreexec not connected

-When googling this error seems people have same issue when running docker.  
And you have to set seccomp to unconfined

Yes, i've read it, but i don't know how disable seccomp and the consequences...


Could you make me a big favour and try to activate SELINUX?

Thank you very much

Best regards


Probably only useful in the template vm.  But still not sure how beneficial it 
would be was my point though.  Its probably not compatible with qubes, sounds 
like it breaks qrexec, maybe not worth the headache man.




Try running SELinux in permissive mode then use the SELinux audit2allow 
to turn the permission violations into new permit rules. Those permit 
rules will allow the system to boot normally once applied to the system 
policy. This process may need to be repeated.


I used to use this script back when I was using tcsh on a stock Fedora 
system, but it would be trivial to change to bash or just use the 
command line:


#!/bin/tcsh
echo
# find the avc entries for the application in the log file
grep "$argv[1]" /var/log/audit/audit.log >  "my$argv[1].out"

# pass those entries to audit to allow
cat  "my$argv[1].out" | audit2allow -M "my$argv[1]"

# display the generated policy so you can learn what its doing
cat "my$argv[1].te"

echo

# Just output to stdout the command needed to commit the new policy,
# this is for cut and paste command execution

echo semodule -i my$argv[1].pp
echo

Basically you give the script a search string and it grep locates all 
avc permission violations containing that application-name/error-message 
and creates a policy file to fix those specific problems, and then it 
echos the command needed to actually fix it to the console. If you agree 
with those permissions displayed you simply copy and paste that command 
back into the command line and press enter. Keep the *.te,*.pp files for 
any future upgrades should you need to repeat this on another system.


If you were running in permissive mode nothing will fail but the system 
will still log those avc violations. Once you have run the *.te file to 
update the policy, on the next boot those avc messages should be 
resolved, if so, turn on the se enforcement (targeted mode) and try 
booting again. Rinse and repeat as necessary until your system boots 
properly, then you can focus on the user application side of things. 
Targeted mode is best for the user, as it denies any system services 
from running that you didn't give permission to run but does not block 
the user from getting their work done.


As for Xen itself, there is also the Flask architecture (SELinux equiv) 
built into

I've been using awesome for almost 10 years and when I switched to Qubes
half a year ago I wanted to continue using awesome, saw these instructions and
gave i3 a try. (Which is a simple as "sudo qubes-dom0-update 
qubes-i3-settings", 
logout, changing to i3 in the login manager and login in again.)

Half an hour later I was happily using i3 and half a day later I knew I would
stay with i3.

(The reason is mostly that i3 is soo much simpler to configure than awesome,
I also like shell much much better than lua.)

[qubes-users] Use another Window Manager (awesome) with Qubes OS

2017-09-28 Thread 'One7two99' via qubes-users
Hello,

I've recently seen the window manager "awesome" in action which I haven't heard 
of before.I would like to give it a try on my Qubes 3.2 installation.

https://awesomewm.org/

Has someone succesfully setup awesome under Qubes (which is basically a fedora) 
and has maybe some tips how to do so?
It seems there are two options:
1) install awesome via dnf/repositories
2) build a rpm package from the GIT sources
 http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/awesome.git/tree/

I've also never changed my default window manager in Qubes ...
Any guidance would be helpfull, also an information if it can be done at all.

You could run the following command in your dom0:
du -sh /var/lib/qubes/appvms/* /var/lib/qubes/vm-templates/* 
/var/lib/qubes/servicevms/*

This will show the summarized space of all VM directories.

no, that's wrong. Qubes supports multiple displays just fine, it's just based
on an 1-2 year old version of Fedora, so it supports whatever that supports.

so newer graphic cards might cause problems, or certain old ones too.

IMHO there is no real connection between RAM used by the OS and apps,
a and the RAM ins your VGA. (VRAM)

VRAM is used for:
- - game (3D) data rendering, which is out of scope in case of Qubes
(maybe if you using Compiz with fancy desktop effects)

- - display rendering.

The later is still need more and more VRAM because of the bigger and
bigger common resolutions Like:
800x600 -> 1024x768 -> 1920x1080 -> 2560x1080 -> 4K -> 8K -> etc.

So you still need more and more VRAM to render all your pixels in your
screens. These can be multiplied if you start using multi-monitor setups
.

But these needs are not growing as fast as your conventional RAM needs.
I'm using 3xHD screens, and the 512Mb VRAM used by the integrated VGA
is still enough for that,  while my OS has 16Gb RAM.

[qubes-users] Re: Adding a second monitor fails

2017-09-28 Thread Coracle
I'm getting the message here and elsewhere that Qubes OS doesn't yet support 
extended desktops or multiple monitors. 

I want to build a navigation system for my boat based on Qubes OS. Modern nav 
systems control the autopilot and display large amounts of information on 
multiple monitors. Qubes OS offers not only a high level of security but also 
seems to offer an opportunity to run incompatible applications simultaneously. 
Not sure if this will mean anything to anyone here but I would like to run 
TimeZero + Navionics vector charts on Windows in one Qube simultaneously with 
OpenCPN + UKHO raster charts on Linux in a second Qube). 

Does anyone know whether Qube OS is eventually going to support multiple 
monitors?
