[qubes-users] Unable to reset PCI device 0000:02.00.0

2018-09-02 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Qubes 4.0 Error - "Start failed: Requested operation is not valid: PCI device 
:02:00.0 is in use by driver xenlight, domain sys-usb

I don't know how to copy the log folder over and qubes doesn't have the 
wireless network, which I believe is related, but I've attached a picture of 
the log. 

This is a new Qubes install on a new Acer laptop Aspire A515-51-86AQ
Booting in legacy mode.

I can get into the main desktop and get to Dom0 terminal, but can't launch any 
of the default domains.

There is another thread on here with the same error. He ran:
$ qvm-pci attach --persistent --option permissive=true --option 
no-strict-reset=true sys-net dom0:00_XXX

And it worked for him, but doesn't work for me, the response I get is "error : 
backend vm "dom0" doesn't expose device "00.XXX"

So I wonder what "xenlight" is and it won't release what pci device?

Suggestions?

Thanks,
Patrick

Hi John and thanks. I agree but I think after I install qubes then I will need 
to delay the grub screen in order to be able to choose either Win 10 or Qubes. 
And I think I have to somehow tell qubes to look for the windows drive and then 
allow to choose it...  Anyway you're right, I think once I have them both 
loaded I hope to figure it out.

Thanks.

Thanks and a quick question. I did get a final "Good signature", but curious, 
does that process actually modify the iso at all? Just would like to know 
because I pulled the iso file from my other pc and it will be easier to build 
the flash there.

[qubes-users] Suggested order for loading Qubes 4.0?

2018-08-16 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hello, I got some great advice about having two hard drives since I want 
Windows on one drive and qubes on another. So I now have a good I7 laptop with 
two - 1/2 TB SSDs. I had in mind to load it this way, is the following correct?

I'm starting with both SSDs empty, no OS on either.

1 Physically install both drives

2 Install Windows on disk 1 after booting to flash drive with windows ISO

3 Unplug windows based SSD drive just to be sure I'm on the right drive next

4 Boot to bios, modify bios to change 2nd SSD (to be Qubes) FROM Windows UEFI 
to other OS (correct?)

5 Boot to a flash drive loaded with the Qubes 4.0 install ISO 

This is the part I'm really not clear about, remember I'm working with two 
drives, booting to either the drive to windows or the drive to qubes. So, am I 
following the advice here?: https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/multiboot/
  - select custom layout, assign existing /boot partition as /boot, deselect 
the 
'Format' option, continue with installation.   

Or, do I let Qubes install in automatic configuration and then manually modify 
the grub file?


Thanks,
Patrick

Hello, Sphere - apologies, I didn't recognize the help you were giving me was 
tactually a better approach than dual boot. Thanks for that. Also, I just have 
to find the details on how I'd approach that solution. If I get a laptop that's 
preloaded with the SSD+HDD already then I would need to unwind that. Perhaps 
should just by something that has the SSD already, and add the HDD - but then I 
need to find the details on how to boot to either one.

Thanks again.

[qubes-users] Qubes OS dual boot question

2018-08-13 Thread Patrick Bouldin
I have a goal to buy a new laptop, preconfigured with Windows, and then within 
Windows I will reallocate disk space in order to install Qubes4.0.

In the past with prior versions of Qubes that has sometimes been problematic, 
is that fixed with 4.0 or still a problem?

Any input on how to proceed?

One data point, while I can recreate windows it's a pain in the butt to get the 
licensing back on the machine. I can do it, but would like to avoid it.

Thanks,
Patrick

[qubes-users] Can't get qvm-run to work

2018-03-21 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hello,

I'm simply trying to copy a file to dom0 form work  ~/Downloads/

Can someone please tell me the precise letters to use if the filename was 
qvm-screenshot-to-clipboard.sh and I want to put it in dom0 ~/Downloads/

Here is the instruction in the manual:
qvm-run --pass-io  'cat /path/to/file_in_src_domain' > 
/path/to/file_name_in_dom0

I get permission denied and tried sudo, etc.

Thought it would be:

qvm-run --pass-io work ~/Downloads/qvm-screenshot-to-clipboard.sh > 
/home/mandoguy/qvm-screenshot-to-clipboard.sh


Wish the documentation had real examples.

Thanks,
Patrick

Ok disregard, I just enabled su and was able to do that. Curious why prefixing

[qubes-users] Can't access /opt/newDirectory

2017-08-02 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Related to earlier email:

I installed an app called splunk, and it seems to always install here:

/opt/splunk/  (off the root)

However, even with sudo I can't event change into the directory. Why is that? 
Can the app itself restrict access to that directory as part of set up? I'm 
doing all this within a fedora-24 template.

Here's the line by line showing this:
[user@fedora-24-work-splunk opt]$ pwd
/opt
[user@fedora-24-work-splunk opt]$ ls
google  splunk
[user@fedora-24-work-splunk opt]$ cd splunk

/opt

Thanks Chris, I decided to go ahead and install it in the template. I had tried 
that once and had another problem, tried it again, same thing. Once installed I 
can't access the folder where it was created, which was the /opt/splunk/ 
folder, check this:

[user@fedora-24-work-splunk /]$ cd opt
[user@fedora-24-work-splunk opt]$ ls
google  splunk
[user@fedora-24-work-splunk opt]$ cd splunk
bash: cd: splunk: Permission denied
[user@fedora-24-work-splunk opt]$ sudo cd splunk
[user@fedora-24-work-splunk opt]$ ls
google  splunk
[user@fedora-24-work-splunk opt]$ 

So it didn't choke, no feedback, but I didn't get into the splunk directory...

What's happening?

Thanks, Patrick

[qubes-users] Use of qubes question

2017-08-02 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hi, I'm trying to use app vms to test an app called splunk..

Anyway, am I thinking about this correctly? This is what I did:

* I created a special template vm called - splunk-template

* I then downloaded the rpm package to that template's tmp folder

* I verified it was there.

* I then restarted the template.

* Then I created an appVM pointed to the splunk-template

I then looked in the /tmp folder and it wasn't there by name, here was the 
contents of that folder:

firefox_user  qubes-session-env  qubes-session-waiter  ssh-fnBwiL4QxbUY  
systemd-private-1789b20d2d894850aa8d42bf8e0075f7-rtkit-daemon.service-d4xIHy


I thought I would be able to install it from the appVM at that point, is this 
some kind of security thing?

Am I even thinking about the process correctly? Because I want to be able to 
install it in different appVMs as part of my learning process.

Thanks.
Patrick

Thanks noor. I tried that but it said I had to do that in the template VM, 
weird. Tried it there and command wasn't available.

Anyway I decided to update the overall template VM and all of a sudden the 
shortcuts showed up as available - weird again!

So I guess it's solved, sort of :)

Thanks,
Patrick

[qubes-users] VM root image file gone after simply creating a VM Backup

2017-06-07 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hello,

I got an APP VM to the point where I wanted it and thought it would be best to 
clone it for the future. I tested it prior and it worked. But when I went 
through the backup steps on the Qubes VM manager it worked, but after that none 
of the app VMs worked - they would all report:

" Qubes
  Error while starting the 'fedora-24' VM: VM root image file doesn't exist: 
/var/lib/qubes/vm-templates/fedora-23/root.img "


I have started this process over twice now:

Reload Qubes fresh
Update dom0
Upgrade fedora-23 to fedora-24

I would save the template as "base fedora-24"

I would continue and add the apps I want: Chrome, Dropbox and printer settings.

I would save that template as well, different name.

I would test the Work and Personal Chrome browsers, no problem, worked fine.

I would then backup the final fedora-24 and store it in a folder in dom0, under 
/user/Downloads.

After that it broke, again - error message as stated.

1 - Can anyone explain what happened?
2 - How can I fix this without starting over?

Thank you,
Patrick

Update - I started again and I'd imagine I did something wrong, so I suggest 
the following update at the top of the upgrade page:

Experienced users - use Summary, otherwise use detailed instructions.

In the detailed instructions I'd suggest adding:

(Recommended - After upgrading the Fedora 24 (from the Fedora 23 clone), clone 
the new Fedora 24 to a copy - and THEN continue with clean up steps.

Thanks,
Patrick

[qubes-users] Documentation for upgrading Fedora 23 to 24

2017-06-07 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hi, I started with a fresh install of Qubes 3.2

Then I upgraded dom0

Then I decided to upgrade fedora-23 to fedora-24 using the steps here:

https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/template/fedora/upgrade-23-to-24/


I followed the "summary" instructions at the top. Then I decided to remove 
fedora-23 from the system and added in some of the commands from the detail.

This caused the image of fedora-24 to disappear as well. Note, one command I 
used was:

sudo dnf remove qubes-template-fedora-23 (and indeed I ensured I typed 23, not 
24).


When launching the VM it indicated there was no image file.

So I'm doing this all over, loading a new Qubes. Question though, can someone 
please edit these instructions to include deleting fedora-23 properly?

They are: 

  [user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-clone fedora-23 fedora-24
[user@dom0 ~]$ truncate -s 5GB /var/tmp/template-upgrade-cache.img
[user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-run -a fedora-24 gnome-terminal
[user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-block -A fedora-24 
dom0:/var/tmp/template-upgrade-cache.img
[user@fedora-24 ~]$ sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/xvdi
[user@fedora-24 ~]$ sudo mount /dev/xvdi /mnt/removable
[user@fedora-24 ~]$ sudo dnf clean all
[user@fedora-24 ~]$ sudo dnf --releasever=24 
--setopt=cachedir=/mnt/removable distro-sync

(Shut down TemplateVM by any normal means.)

[user@dom0 ~]$ rm /var/tmp/template-upgrade-cache.img
[user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-trim-template fedora-24

[qubes-users] Can Google Drive be installed on a VM?

2017-05-31 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hi, similar to Dropbox where I was able to install it as an app within a VM 
template - and it syncs automatically when I open the VM - AND it's a folder 
mapped in the VM files manager for easy file movement

Can I do the same with Google Drive? Where it also can be accessed in the VM 
Files manager?

[qubes-users] Boot problem that I created!

2017-05-24 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hi Qubes fans.
Ok, my royal mistake - not realizing I had a keyboard error and in trying to 
fix the computer I created other issues. Now my system is not booting to Qubes. 
When I didn't realize I had a keyboard issue I changed secure boot mode back a 
few times, among other things. Here's what I did:

So, I tried these scenarios:
Legacy Support enabled, Secure boot disabled. It asks for a new four digit 
code, and then reboot - nothing but black screen. Honestly, I do not remember 
if I had secure boot running before!

Then this try:
Legacy Support Disabled, Secure boot disabled.
Result: "Boot device not found - install an OS on your hard disk"


Then this try:
Legacy support Disabled, Secure boot enabled - Same result as above, no boot 
device found.

Finally this try:
Legacy support enable, secure boot enabled - it won't allow this combination.


So then I boot to the USB - Qubes - and selected the recovery option:
(Legacy support disabled, secure boot disabled) - it said a changed in OS was 
detected, I had to confirm with a four digit key.

Then Qubes loaded and I continued to rescue mode.
It asked for my LUKS passphrase, this is the same as my disk encryption right?
So I entered that.

Then it displayed this prompt:

sh-4.3#

Is that my hard drive Qubes it found?

Any suggestions on what to do from here would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Patrick

Thanks unman, that actually worked. However, apparently the QubesOS install 
apparently corrupted the Windows OS partition that was installed first. I guess 
that's a different problem! Do you think I need to start over? If I try to boot 
to the USB windows7 ISO it doesn't recognize it, but I know the ISO is good.

I'm probably a 3 out of 1-10 scale in my expertise on this, hopefully someone 
else can jump it too - but I ran into some similiar issues. Check this out: 
https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/thinkpad-troubleshooting/

Notes like disabling VT-d on the ThinkPads, in the bios. Also had to disable 
some other things - look around there as a start, if you haven't already.

Best,
Patrick

Hi, yes I may have not used vi right, but think I have it now (google is my 
friend):)  

As mentioned earlier, I can't interpret the next steps in Eva's post and had 
some specific questions.

Thanks,
Patrick

Hi Eva, I think you wrote the QVM-Screenshot-Tool correct? Would you mind 
taking a look at my last post on this thread? 
https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!topic/qubes-users/RvKIRS3zCj4

I'm following the documentation as best as I can but need a nudge.

Thanks,
Patrick

By chance are you logging into the same Google Account in the different VMs?  I 
have noticed this same behavior, but only when logged into the same Google 
account. In fact, many times something causes the session to disassociate with 
the browser and hang - I suspect there's something in the network part of the 
hypervisor that is causing google to get confused as to which VM should be 
authorized, etc - as the same IP is being used. Or, something in this regard.

If I close out of the Google Sessions each VM seems to work fine - but, when 
this does happen it surely causes the VM to hang up for a very long time.

[qubes-users] Multi Boot Question

2017-05-05 Thread Patrick Bouldin
I was attempting to go by the instructions here:
https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/multiboot/

Confused on which instructions to execute. First, I repartitioned, then 
installed Windows 7 - it booted fine. Then I installed Qubes on the other 
position - and Qubes now boots fine to that partition. With that in mind, do I 
follow the instructions under Windows or Linux on the guidelines?

And, if I'm to use the Windows instructions, then when doing a blkid in order 
to get the volume for windows and substituting that name into the X in the 
"ntldr (hd1,X)/bootmgr" line of the /etc/grub.d/40_custom  file - I am unclear 
as to what to use there. If I blkid I see this: 

/dev/sdal: LABEL="System Reserved" UUID="lotsOfcharacters", and then type, and 
then PARTUUID="othercharacters".  So, which do I want for the X substitution. 
Either way upon boot I get "error: hd1 cannot get C/H/S values"

Thank you,
Patrick

Thanks. Ok, can you recommend the linux installer, or are you saying just do 
the allocation from a USB boot to a linux iso installer?

Thank you,

[qubes-users] gparted suggestions?

2017-04-20 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hi, I am re-partitioning a corrupted drive on a Lenovo laptop with an i5. Do 
not need to save data, I'm starting over.

So, I have booted to a USB with gparted tool. I would like to have two 
partitions, one for qubes and one for windows 10. I would also like to have it 
boot to something that asks me where to boot, either qubes or windows 10, so 
maybe that's another partition.

Being brand new to gparted I don't know how best to set it up.

If you have experience with this I'd appreciate any suggestions before I dive 
in.

Thank you,
Patrick

Sorry for the top post, I knew better! :)  

Ok, I think I am almost there. I am still confused on how the shellscript is 
invoked. Do I create a shortcut that activates this? Once I have the shell 
script in dom0, how do I invoke it from a screen print?

Thanks,
Patrick

[qubes-users] Copy/Paste images

2017-02-08 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hi everyone,

One important thing that really keeps me back from totally converting to qubes 
is the inability to create documents with screenshots. On a windows pc I can of 
course do a screen print, then quickly crop the image and paste it right in a 
document.

This seems extremely difficult in qubes. I do see someone created some image 
copy/paste between domains here: 
http://jrruethe.github.io/blog/2015/09/17/screenshots-in-qubes/

Am I missing something basic or will I need to do something like that?

Thanks,

Just would like to add to my last post that I found some code related to the 
bugzilla, here: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/attachment.cgi?id=6590

So would I somehow install that and how? Or, download a tar file and install 
(and how?)

Thanks,
Patrick

Hi, it does look like it. I searched around a lot and this is new territory so 
can you guide me a bit? It says to use patch 53. I assume that's available as a 
pull request on Github (also new to me). Can you give me instruction on how to 
find the patch? Could you give me basic instructions on applying it? Would I 
download the tar file and then install it at Dom0 terminal? New ground, all of 
it. Not afraid of it just need a push.

[qubes-users] Monitor won't wake up after temporary hdmi switchover

2017-02-02 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hello again, this problem is really causing issues. I have multiple hdmi 
connections on my monitor. Whenever I switch over, away from the Qubes machine, 
and then back again, the Qubes machine loses its hdmi connection. I can tell 
the machine is still running, and ok, but I can't see anything!

PS - on boot, I'm still always getting this error:
[FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.

Could this be related? It seems to operate fine, except for the hdmi monitor.


Thank you,
Patrick

Hi, I'm not seeing that as an option, is that correct?

I thought maybe I could avoid buying an Apple in order to do some mobile app 
development if I could load the OS into a VM.

PS - I see the following to add shortcuts to app that didn't make them 
available: https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/signal/

But I still confused with step 1. Am I even on the right track? What shortcut 
has been created in step 1 of the Signal example? How did he "get" the shortcut?

Darn, still not working - I noticed this link is not working: 
baseurl=http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/\$releasever/
gpgkey=http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/rpm-public-key.asc


So it's not finding the file, tested that just in my browser address bar.

Hi Andrew, thanks and I guess so. When I removed one or two with the right 
click it still left it on the Applications menu selection. So I guess was 
looking for a remedy to get that last step done.

Thanks,

Hi,

I've been getting this message ever since loading 3.2 from scratch. It doesn't 
appear to have any effect though.

Does anyone know the implication of this? Should I fix?

Wow, this is a bear for me. 

Dropbox said:Add the following to /etc/yum.conf.


name=Dropbox Repository
baseurl=http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/\$releasever/
gpgkey=http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/rpm-public-key.asc

So I performed a sudo gedit on that file and added the above three lines. When 
I saved it I received this:

** (gedit:1791): WARNING **: Set document metadata failed: Setting attribute 
metadata::gedit-position not supported
[user@fedora-24 ~]$ 

So I do see that you can't save metadata by extending the yum.conf file, and 
tried a few other things that I think it was suggesting.

When I try and run $ sudo dnf install nautilus-dropbox
I get this:
Last metadata expiration check: 0:14:35 ago on Tue Dec 27 15:23:35 2016.
No package nautilus-dropbox available.
Error: Unable to find a match.

I'm sorry if this is beyond the scope of qubesOS assistance, perhaps I should 
check in with a dropbox forum?

Thanks,
Patrick

Thanks David. housekeeping question - before I started I copied my Fedora 
template, just in case. Am I correct I can easily undo those changes 
incorrectly made by deleting the template and renaming the backup template to

Ran into some issues, can I confirm what you said?

So I first installed dropbox according to dropbox instructions:

$ cd ~ && wget -O - "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64; | tar 
xzf -

That completes ok...
Then they say:

Next, run the Dropbox daemon from the newly created .dropbox-dist folder.

~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd

I attempted this in the same Fedore template, is that correct? It installs but 
doesn't complete - it actually starts dropbox file synching.

I know you said that after I install according to your instructions to do:

$ sudo dnf install nautilus-dropbox 

I assume that is also on the Fedora template?

I tried that with and without the last instruction from dropbox on the template.

Incidentally, I am able to successfully load dropbox and synch on any of my 
VMs... (of course I lose it when restart). So just need clarification on the 
template.

PS - I do not want Dropbox to start in a VM unless I tell it.

Thanks!

one day of poking around more, let me just ask this. I looked but could not 
find, is it normal to be able to launch Fedora GNOME inside a Fedora 24 VM? How 
does one do that? I tried StartX... that doesn't work. Do I need to install 
something?

Hi Chris, well that is a new topic for me, but did some checking. To clarify, 
one would adjust that at the CLI right? A command like "sudo systemctl stop 
qubes-qmemman" ?  If so, I haven't done that. I also see a setting related to 
the memory balancing in the advanced part of the memory allocation, a checkmark 
for "include in memory balancing" - and that is checked, I think it's default.

Is that what you referred to? Incidentally, I've not installed it on the 
template yet, just testing on a created VM until I see it working well.

Thanks,
Patrick

[qubes-users] Fedora Desktop in Qubes

Hi, I saw some threads on this but am not clear at a high level.

I thought I would install dropbox client on one of my Fedora VMs so that 
working with files is much smoother than from a browser. So, is installing a 
Fedora Desktop the best plan to do that? Don't assume I know enough of native 
Qubes ability please - maybe I'm missing a key point!

Question, are you plugging in at the standard mini jack on the machine or are 
you by chance plugging into the audio jack of an hdmi monitor?  I was using the 
hdmi monitor and had serious intermittent issues. Once I replugged into the 
standard audio output it was 100%. Note: I downloaded Google Chrome into the 
Fedora VM template and run ALL the audio within Chrome. I had problems running 
some sound out of the other browsers so I just use Chrome now.

[qubes-users] Can I speed up the loading of an APP?

2016-12-20 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hi, compared to running a certain app in windows (Anki), installing it in the 
Fedora template in Qubes means the first time to run is very slow to launch. 
Maybe up to a minute. To install it to the template I just said "sudo yum 
install anki"

Otherwise, other things running are very fast. If I do launch it manually from 
the fedora CLI it's the same slow launch. Maybe it comes down to compiling it?

Thanks,
Patrick

** 2nd update ** while the above update is true, unfortunately when the machine 
hibernates the only thing that brings the display back is a cold boot.

So it seems to be associated with losing the hdmi somehow - causing the machine 
not to be responsive to keyboard wake-up.

Any clues?

Patrick

[qubes-users] Issue with hdmi

2016-12-04 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hi, after returning to Qubes (I waited for 3.2 since my video was having 
issues) - seems to be working fine now.

However, when the machine times out into sleep, and if I've turned off my hdmi 
monitor I can't seem to wake up the video. I can tell Qubes is running, but 
have tried many ways to wake up the hdmi, haven't found a way.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Patrick

[qubes-users] Where is Chrome once installed?

2016-12-04 Thread Patrick Bouldin
Hi, newbie question.

I am using 3.2 and an HP I7 processor.

I created a Fedora VM. I wanted to run a Chrome browser, so I used Firefox to 
download and save in the Fedora VM file section, where I installed Chrome. Then 
it asks if I want to run it, and I do - no problem. However, I don't see a way 
to actually launch Chrome anywhere (other than when it asks me after 
installing). No trace of Chrome anywhere.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Patrick

Chris, I agree with your points.

I am a medium tech type, definitely Windows background and trying (out of 
"learner" interest) to gear up on Linux and derivations. When I first heard 
of Qubes I was very excited because it would finally solve a lot of 
problems I've experienced with my previous windows systems. And, since I 
have begun to do things on Linux the idea of having the Qubes framework 
seemed awesome and simple. 

If find however that reproducing my day to day paradigm is an extremely 
difficult journey. My paradigm includes a lot of technical, and also 
musician interest. Just getting to the basics of playing mp3s or running 
what I normally run in windows seems like a battle.

I have a need to be "learner" on the Linux systems, but still flip to 
Windows on my day to day routine. I have to swap monitors and go to trouble 
right now switching - it concerns me that it's this hard. I want to learn, 
but getting answers is also difficult. I do understand the mantra on here 
about teaching people to help themselves. But, if the goal is to achieve 
wide spread adoption of Qubes then something else needs to happen.

On the forum question specifically - I frankly like the idea. I also share 
the concern expressed that all the info is not in one place. For what it's 
worth, my vote would be to dump everything except the forum, take this to 
the next level.

Thanks,.
Patrick

Hello, I was wondering. I'm having same issues on screen crazy, etc. In 
order to do the 'i915.preliminary_hw_support=1' to fix the issue, must I 
re-install QubesOS as indicated above, or is there a way to simply update 
things?

Thanks.
