[qubes-users] Re: how to get the update proxy working again

2018-01-07 Thread khmartinsen
Is your new net vm different than "sys-net"? This caused me problems too. One 
solution is to rename the new net vm to "sys-net" or you can edit this file in 
dom0:

/etc/qubes-rpc/policy/qubes.UpdatesProxy

In that file there is a line that says target=sys-net.
I changed it to the same name as my net vm.

This is because the new update proxy works using qrexec as I understand.
>From the qubes R4.0 release notes:
 - Template VMs do not have network interface by default, qrexec-based updates 
proxy is used instead

There are probably plans to make this update automatically by the qubes.xml 
file or something else. Hope this helped!

[qubes-users] Buy laptop

2018-01-07 Thread leonardo . porpora2000
Hi,

I want to buy a new Laptop and I would like to buy one fully complatible
with Qubes 4.0. I saw the HCL and there is only one laptop compatible
with Qubes 4.0 and it's hard to find it where I live (in Italy), and
honestly I don't like that laptop. I also think the HCL on your website
is a bit old because i searched 6/7 laptops and i wasn't able
to find them even in the UK. Could you please tell me one laptop preferably
full compatible with Qubes 4.0 that I could buy for a price around 850
dollars.

Best regards,

Porpora

[qubes-users] What is my Core m7-6Y75 CPU Missing that prevents qubes 4 from installing?

2018-01-07 Thread cryptophoto
Hi All,

I'm running an ORWL m7-480 ( https://orwl.org/ ) and the install reported that 
my CPU is not compatible (I forget the exact wording/reason).  My CPU info is 
below, and it does appear to have all the VTX-* etc tech needed?

I somehow stumbled onward anyhow (more by accident really) despite the warning, 
and it did kindof boot up afterward, although I then reverted to qubes 3 
because I wanted to play more with my new ORWL toy.  Perhaps there's a bug in 
the installer that's not understanding that my CPU is ok?

If I remember right, you only have 4GB of RAM in the laptop, right? Qubes
minimum is really more like 8GB, 16+ is even better. You might be hitting
this issue https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/3079, but more
severely than most because you are essentially out of memory as soon as
you boot up.

Also, can you set your email client to Plain Text mode? Not sure what it's
doing but it makes your messages hard to read.

You can run Tails from inside Qubes (see
https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/tails/) but again, there are trade-offs to
that so it's a judgement call. Personally, I'd say use Qubes for
everything and boot Tails separately off the USB drive when you want to

For #2 As I see Whonix OS within Qubes OS will not bring any additional

Is it Dell Latitute by a chance? I have very similar problem on such
system, regardless of Qubes version: when it is on AC power, performance
is normal, but on battery it is significantly slower. Some workaround is
to change CPU scaling governor, by executing in dom0:

xenpm set-scaling-governor performance

You don't need to. If done wrong, VPNs can hurt security and anonymity.

Whonix routes through Tor which can provide anonymity. I'd recommend this
until you are comfortable with the pros and cons of VPNs and Tor. To
install Whonix in Qubes, just check the box on install and the one
underneath it for updates.

In theory these are possible but running Qubes on a flash drive is mostly
just to try it out, it's going to be slow. Qubes will work best installed
to an internal drive.

It doesn't work like that. If you want to print from a dispVM, you'd need
to qvm-usb attach the printer straight to the disposable VM, like "disp5"
or whatever.

Hey, thanks.
Do you know a lot about Qubes?
Is it possible I can bother you here or somewhere else with few questions?
I'm new to Qubes, Whonix, and Tails.
I'm trying to make my PC - with high security and anonymity.

1. Do I need to install additional "internetz.me vpn in a special Proxy VM (the 
gui way )" on Qubes? Is it necessary? My question based on this video 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYEmDZebow4

2. Can I and do I need to install Whonix OS inside Qubes OS for more security?

3. Can I run Tails on my flash drive using Qubes OS (also can I run Tails on 
Whonix OS within Qubes OS)?

Strange, it should work. And on my system it works...

Anything special in your configuration? Have you chosen non standard
partitioning or such?
Maybe you don't have LVM thin based storage? You can check that for the
template using (adjust template name):

qvm-volume ls fedora-26

The storage pool used will be in the first column, for example:

POOL:VOLUME   VMNAME VOLUME_NAME  
REVERT_POSSIBLE
linux-kernel:4.9.56-21fedora-26  kernel   No
lvm:qubes_dom0/vm-fedora-26-private   fedora-26  private  No
lvm:qubes_dom0/vm-fedora-26-root  fedora-26  root No
lvm:qubes_dom0/vm-fedora-26-volatile  fedora-26  volatile No

Here you see "lvm" pool.

If you want, you can dig further: qvm-pool -i lvm 

name  lvm
driverlvm_thin
size  486585401344
thin_pool pool00
usage 347665269260
volume_group  qubes_dom0

Neat collection you put together here, gives a better understanding where we 
are at indeed. I suppose (partly guessing here) that "sudo lvs" works for both 
"LVM" and "LVM Thin" FS-formats? I can only check LVM atm as I'm currently not 
using "LVM Thin".

As for discard to be supported, I suppose it has to be enabled during the 
mounting process, such as in the fstab? Thinking more align the need to solve 
the issue the original posters response regarding lack of discard support, up 
above. Could a solution really be that simple as to put it into the fstab 
though, or is there more to it?

[qubes-users] how to get the update proxy working again

2018-01-07 Thread 'Tom Zander' via qubes-users
I needed space on my dom0  (Q4) drive, so I ended up using qvm-clone to copy 
my fedora25 template, my sys-net & sys-firewall to a different pool.
I naturally also copied the setup from the config dialog.

Everything seemed to work for a while, so I removed the sys-net /firewall 
originals.

Now I have a problem, updates in templates no longer work. The magic proxy 
fails me and I can't figure out how that thing actually was designed in order 
to make it work again.

My first thinking was to assign the original IP addresses to the cloned VMs, 
but qvm-prefs refuses to overwrite the qid property. :-(

The docs on the website talk about a service "qubes-yum-proxy" can't find 
that one, though. I guess its a 3.2 property.

Anyone here able to explain how this proxy works? Would make a nice doc on 
the website too!
I'd love some suggestions on how to fix this...

Thanks!

Hi!

I was able to test qubes R3.2 and R4.0-rc3.
Generally everything works fine, except the suspend when the network was
lost until reboot. It's most likely energy management issues.

Re: [qubes-users] Intel ME Backdoor, called Odin's Eye

2018-01-07 Thread Ivan Ivanov
Yes, hopefully one day we would see more leaks, that could help us to
truly get rid of ME ;)
Meanwhile, perhaps the only thing we could do is to stockpile those
few computer models
that are both coreboot (or libreboot) supported and without Intel ME / AMD PSP

The battery issue, btw, as far as I recall is nothing new in Qubes 4. It's not 
something specifc to your system, and if it gets fixed, it'll probably be an 
update to fix all the Qubes 4 systems out there. But maybe there are settings 
you can flip to fix it manually, however it's not something I've checked. 

Make sure the VM's that start at boot, are starting just as slow (or quick) as 
if you started them on an already running Qubes system. If the speed is 
similar, then at least you can assume it has nothing to do with the actual 
booting process. 

It sounds weird that it happens randomly, maybe a few more clues are needed to 
hunt down the actual reason as to why it happens, unless someone with better 
insight drops by.

Hmmm, which is the sense to avoid telling the Intel guy name, but providing
enough information for Intel to understand who is writing? If it was real,
Intel and intelligence agencies would immediately act and deprive him/her
of the freedom to tell or confirm more. The only working way to do that is
how Snowden taught, taking full responsibility, providing plenty of
evidence, getting media help  and moving to a country willing to protect
you.

 It seems

After you type in your drive encryption password, followup by typing F1 key on 
your keyboard. This way you can follow the booting process in details as it 
happens. If any booting processes are hanging, you'll be able to take note 
"which one", and thereby narrow down the possible culprit. 

You can also do a "sudo journalctl --boot" or akin to that, after booting. But 
remember to do so after a fresh bootup, unless you want a mountain of extra 
unneeded information.

Also, if the booting is slow before you type in your drive encryption, then you 
know it's related to settings or features EFI/UEFI or Legacy-Boot/BIOS. It 
could also possibly be because you got a thumb-drive or external-harddrive 
sitting in your USB; which on some systems can make the booting process 
significantly slower as the system tries to identify bootable systems on the 
extra external-drives/thumb-drives.

Re: [qubes-users] New HCL Entry: Lenovo ThinkPad T470 (20HDCTO1WW)

2018-01-07 Thread kototamo
Thanks everyone for the replies. I finally opted for RC3 and after fixing the 
iso with a live fedora and livecd-tools it went almost almost without problems. 
The only problem was that the keyboard layout chosen during the installation 
was not taken in account for promting the encryption password when booting.

I hope I will not encounter too much bugs with it and be able to work. It seems 
okay for the few hours I had to use it and even more resistant to usb devices 
being physically disconnected without detaching them than 3.2.

Basically, it's no more. Better explained here; 

Quote: "Qubes R4.0 will have a new storage scheme which utilizes LVM thin 
provisioning (and over-provisioning) to achieve similar capabilities with 
greater flexibility." Follow link for source and further details - 
https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/315345/using-ssd-on-qubes-os

Also, as per my current understanding, this automated trimming feature was not 
fully developed after Qubes 4 RC-1 was released, but has gradually been refined 
and perfected till this day. But there are still some issues, i.e. no visual 
interface to show your overall disk space useage (the other month, you had to 
pull and combine several commands to make it show accurately). I'm not sure if 
this disk space useage reporting issue has been fixed today though.

around, would it work? It says required PCI-E 3 and the board has PCI-E 2
so probably not, but would be good to know.

Hmm curious is this your first time building a PC? :0 I thought you had
done this before? All PCI-e stuff is backwards and forwards compatible I
would get this all set up before you buy a newer GFX card - that one
will work fine for now.


I did build PCs before, but that was literarly a life time ago (early
2000's), and since then, I've been with laptops. I was aware of PCI-e
compatibility, but I did not know to what degree the difference in speed
might affect the GPU. Would a GTX 1080 work for instance?
There is no real difference between 3.0 and 2.0 even with 4K, Crossfire 
and the latest cards so having v2.0 is fine.
As I have stated before nvidia is a bad company and you shouldn't buy 
from them, they do not support owner-control, actively hinder linux 
driver development and VM gaming.


Don't forget your board standoffs, and don't confuse the PCI-e power 
cables with EPS12V.
Since it has been a long time you should brush up and watch some vids 
from reputable places, you gotta be careful considering how much $$$ you 
have spent :]

Hey when you get this let me know if you need any help setting up VM
gaming it is very difficult but very rewarding.
One gotcha I have noticed is NUMA alignment, each 16 core CPU contains
two NUMA nodes and performance will suffer greatly if things are not
properly aligned (gets tricker in VM's too)


I will definitely do that.
I eagerly await your gaming benchmarks, there are several triple A games 
out there that support 16 cores and you must try them.

TPM:
I am not sure about TPM's I would call ASUS and ask for a board
compatible part number.

I might have to return the one I got then, it's a Gigabyte TPM module.

Like I said call and ask asus what model number you need for the board.

Ideally you could simply use whatever same-generation of TPM (board is 
v1.2 not v2.0) as it uses a simple LPC bus for communication but you 
might as well buy whatever asus tells you to so to avoid trouble. 
Coreboot devs tested with asus's infineon brand TPM.

I assume you have bought a TPM 2.0, if so that definitely won't work.

Newegg Links:
I can't view newegg links, you would have to find a OEM link to show me.
I would get a 1KW PSU from a reputable company, like I said dual EPS12V,
modular and japanese capacitors is what you want.



I got this one, https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=220-G3-1000-X1
I usually don't recommend evga as I don't like companies who sell both 
good and bad products (their lower end stuff is crappy) but that seems 
fine, good reviews japanese caps and a nice 10 year warranty.

Case Price - no more than $200 unless it includes nice front HDD hot
swap bays - Don't use the PSU that comes with the case.

Unfortunately, it ended up closer to 400. I got this one

http://www.norcotek.com/product/rpc-4220/ it was difficult finding EEB
cases. Depending on the noise it makes, there's a braket that I can switch
in it to change the 4 80mm fans with 3 120mm fans. In anycase, I wanted a
case that has wide support for boards (CEB, EEB, ATX and mini ATX) so later
on I can update the components and not have to reinvenst in the case.
Nice case, pricey but with an HBA or RAID card you can install all the 
drives you'll ever want.

It has good reviews that mention the high quality, good choice!

I would also get front drive bay HDD enclosures that have a fan
otherwise your drives will get hot inside the case and be a pain to
service.


this one does not have a fan, I'll add a braket if I see a need, but I
think it'll be alright with the 6 fans it has.
Yeah you sure will, since the bays came with the case you won't need 
additional cooling as they have already taken care of that (with the 
assorted case fans)


Send me links, titles, prices and used/new status for the rest of the 
stuff you got and I can look it over.

Hi,

FYI, In order to update the new template for the first time, I had to launch:
dnf update --best --allowerasing
there was a pb with yum-utils which was preventing the QubesManager method (dnf 
update --best) to work.

Regards,
Alex

That isn't an "intel whistleblower" that is simply a random dude with 
too much time on his hands making up a bullshit story, besides there is 
no "backdooring" IME as it already is a backdoor.


Intel doesn't need to add a specific backdoor for such a thing nor would 
a TLA ever ask as:

They already have knowledge of various exploits that do the same thing
A specific func_backdoor has zero plausible deniability
Any foreign intel agency could easily obtain proof and tell the media.

Very easy - same as a regular drive as both grub and SeaBIOS support

it will definitely work via coreboot.

The post is unspecific. Of course ME is a problem: the allegations could
be true or could be disinformation. "I know exactly" is an unplausible
formulation for a backdooring engineer - it is almost surely a wrong ot
statement if it was not himself who spied ...  To conclude: unless some
details are given to enhance trustworthyness (a specific backdoor,
protocol, communication interface, whatsoever), I personally consider
this troll post.

How difficult it is to get Qubes to boot from NVMe drive in KGPE-D16? I'm 
thinking about buying it and I'd like to have NVMe drive for the OS. But I have 
very limited experience with coreboot/BIOS stuff, so hopefully I don't need to

I did build PCs before, but that was literarly a life time ago (early
2000's), and since then, I've been with laptops. I was aware of PCI-e
compatibility, but I did not know to what degree the difference in speed
might affect the GPU. Would a GTX 1080 work for instance?

http://www.norcotek.com/product/rpc-4220/ it was difficult finding EEB
cases. Depending on the noise it makes, there's a braket that I can switch
in it to change the 4 80mm fans with 3 120mm fans. In anycase, I wanted a
case that has wide support for boards (CEB, EEB, ATX and mini ATX) so later
on I can update the components and not have to reinvenst in the case.

this one does not have a fan, I'll add a braket if I see a need, but I
think it'll be alright with the 6 fans it has.

Re: [qubes-users] Qubes 4.0 rc3 boot and performance is quite slow

2018-01-07 Thread Fabrizio Romano Genovese
Ok, I dug a bit deeper into this. It doesn't look like a problem of how much 
memory I give to VMs. Essentially, my QubesOS boots in two different ways:

- When QubesOS is happy, it starts in ~1 min (yup, starting up all the VMs 
still takes a while). The overall system is very reactive, for instance if I 
type qvm-ls I obtain some output straight away. Moreover, if I start a VM the 
notification "VM blabla is starting" is displayed immediately.

- When QubesOS is not happy, it starts in ~3mins. The overall system is very 
slow, qvm-ls takes 3-4 seconds to display output, and starting a VM takes up to 
20 seconds. Even the notification "VM blabla is starting" is displayed 4-5 
seconds after the command is issued. Moreover the battery is drained much much 
quicker (200% quicker give or take).

What makes Qubes happy or not happy to start seems to be completely random. I 
have a slight suspect that this may depend on booting the laptop while 
plugged/unplugged, but I cannot confirm this.
Essentially my Qubes experience atm can be exemplified as follows: "At boot, 
throw a coin. If it's heads then it's fine, otherwise it's fubar". Any 
suggestion (or report of similar behavior) would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,
Fab

I had the same thing happen; I shut down whonix, that didn't work. Then I also 
shut down sys-firewall; then I could once again start sys-net. Thanks for the
