[qubes-users] Update all domains for Qubes OS 4.0

2017-11-03 Thread Jimmy Axenhus
Hi! A while ago I wrote a small Python-script to update all VMs at once. I've now upgraded it for Qubes OS 4.0. At the same time I decided to rewrite it in shell to avoid relying on the Python API. Unless something drastically changes I expect this to also work for future Qubes OS releases. URL:

[qubes-users] Issue #2407: Renaming VM works partially

2016-11-08 Thread Jimmy Axenhus
https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/2407 Sadly I reproduced this by accident. I renamed a VM, but it somehow failed. It did not get renamed in Qubes VM Manager, yet it did in /var/lib/qubes/appvms and the start menu in dom0. A simple reboot did not solve the problem as Qubes VM Manager

2016-06-20 Thread Jimmy Axenhus
Hi! Whenever I try to make a backup with the Qubes VM Manager (System -> Backup VMs) it appears to be freezing and I have to wait several minutes for it to start responding again. I've been able to make backups before, but after not having done it for a while I decided to go ahead and do it
