Re: [EXT] [qubes-users] How to edit Qubes R4.0.3 ISO image file in Windows 10 system

2021-02-15 Thread Data Eight
Hello Qubes Google Group Members (who are gave their suggenstions to my 
post):
Thanks all for your help and support regarding editing Qubes ISO image.

I referred the UEFI Troubleshooting web page and installed the QUBES OS in 
my Dell Inspiron and started to learn to work with QUBES.
Thanks once again. 

The exact problem I have is system get freezed when the system get reboot 
after successful QUBES OS installation. So, as per UEFI troubleshooting 
instruction for UEFI system, I have included some kernal line changes in 
xen.cfg file using vi editor, before selecting reboot after Qubes install.

The procedure I followed for this modification is as follows:
1. dont select reboot after successful installation of Qubes OS
2. press *ctrl+alt+f2*
3. type: *vi /mnt/sysimage/boot/efi/EFI/qubes/xen.cfg*
4. remove the following from the first line: *smt=off *and insert 
*efi=attr=uc*
5. then enter the following: *:wq*
6. press ctrl+alt+f6
7. select reboot.

Thats it. Now the black screen problem what I have faced was gone. I posted 
what I followed to resolve this problem. The above procedure will be 
helpful for someone. The windows 10 word in the help requested post, is 
actually not relevant to be used to ask suggession.  So sorry for it.

Thanks once again Group Users who are responded.

This is already done in R4.1 version.

Respect this there is a "Cascade shutdown" that will power off all the
connected VM's in recursive mode. I understand that is not what you
mean, you want a option for restart this VM without touching any others...

I understand that you find it helpful for some kind of hardware problem
(sleep / wake up?) but it seems more a hack than a real solution.

Uhm more than a force-reboot option, ideally the restart option should
trigger a timeout and if it expires ask you if you want to kill it or
keep waiting (same that shutdown option). Is it not the current behavior?

[qubes-users] Qubes Manager Feature Requests: Connect to not-running NetVM, restart NetVM with connected machines, force-restart a NetVM

2021-02-15 Thread r . wiesbach

Hello fellow Qubes users,

I have 3 feature requests today regarding Qubes Manager:

1) Connect to not-running NetVM
If a not-running NetVM is chosen there should not be an error message
but a choice between "Start NetVM" and "Abort"

2) restart netVM with connected machines
Sometimes NetVMs have issues that are easily solved by a restart.
Nastily Qubes prevents restarting the netVM if VMs are connected. What
should optionally happen is either that the connected VMs are
disconnected, the NetVM is restarted and the VMs are reconnected (that
is what I do manually whenever this is needed) or alternatively that all
connected VMs are restarted as well.

3) force-reboot a VM
Users can kill a VM, but this way the user has to wait until the VM was
terminated and then start the machine again (kill + start). It would be
useful to have a single option for both tasks. That happens to me almost
daily with the USB-VM.

Thank you.
