Thanks very much for doing that, my Arch template originally came from
your repo.

> unman

I imported your package signing key with pacman-key ("pacman-key
--finger unman" finds the key just fine) but if I try to do an upgrade
(pacman -Syu) I get (transcribed so there may be typos):

error: qubes-r4.0: signature from "unman (Qubes OS Signing Key)
" is invalid

Any thoughts? (I think I hit this iceberg before, and that is why I
have been using the AUR packages.)

[qubes-users] mounting root TemplatVM partition in dom0 fails

2021-08-30 Thread rss+qubes
Hi,

I have some templates stored in a "file" pool where, for example, I
find the following files:

private.img
private-cow.img
root.img
root-cow.img

I can do this in dom0, no problem:

sudo mount private.img /mnt

But this fails:

sudo mount root.img /mnt

with a very common, uninformative error, ie.

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, etc. etc.

I would dearly love to mount the root.img and modify a file in /etc file
in a broken VM. Any hints would be welcome.

[qubes-users] qubes packages in Archlinux AUR repo

2021-08-28 Thread rss+qubes
Hi,

Wondering if the Archlinux dev "seberm" is on this list, and what (if
anything) is happening with the Qubes AUR packages? 

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?O=0=qubes

I have been using these repos (the six of them that are not "empty")
to keep my Arch AppVM alive for quite some time now (years?) and for
the first time in a very long time, I seem to have a hard failure. The
Arch VM boots, but X does not work.

(Basically, if no one is working this I need to move on from Arch)

TIA.

[qubes-users] HCL for Lenovo X240

2019-08-05 Thread rss+qubes
Everything works flawlessly except return from suspend, where sys-usb
is frozen and needs a restart. I am now in the habit of simply turning
off sys-usb before suspending.

I did have one nasty surprise: this machine is fitted for a maximum of
8G of RAM. There is in fact only one RAM socket. A pleasant surprise
after this was that, for me, it is actually usable. Once or twice a day
I have to turn something off to start something else, but so far this
has been tolerable. Obviously, YMMV.

I have an X230 with 16G of RAM, so buying a later model that cannot
handle as much RAM was a real kick in the butt. (Thanks, Lenovo.)
Because of the RAM fiasco, I think it would be a real good idea if
this report makes it into the HCL. It is noticeably faster than the
X230, but the X230 is still a better machine for a Qubes user.

It looks to me like a bigger problem, not necessarily device specific:
https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/3221

Remember this is not a public release, this is RC2. Release CANDIDATE 2.
That means it is a version meant for TESTING, not necessarily ready for
anything more.

TEST_FAILED

In fact I have an x230 without Coreboot, and I too cannot reliably even
get sys-net to run, let alone sys-firewall, which I do not think I have
seen running once.

Personally I am going to close the lid and wait for the next release.
(Unless anyone would like to collect some debug information from me.)

Actually, I run IPv6-enabled mail servers, and I am (at least some
times) getting IPv6 connections with Google's mail servers. This is
fairly recent behavior. A good chunk of Amazon AWS has recently enabled
IPv6. 

I rent (very cheap) two servers that have no public IPv4 IP addresses,
only IPv6.

IPv6 is coming, count on it.

Re: [qubes-users] Re: installing Signal on Qubes mini-HOWTO

2016-08-19 Thread RSS

> Is F-Droid's Silence any better than Signal given it can run without
> Google Play Store?

I use CyanogenMod Android minus most of the Google malware (ie. no
Google play). In that configuration Signal refuses to work because it
(at least) depends on Google Play for notifications. Silence however
does not, and works great. On Android, with a sim card.

However, it is my (not deeply researched!!) understanding that the
Signal dev(s) do not like/permit other applications connecting to their
servers. No servers, no direct messages, all Silence messages are
necessarily SMS messages going over the phone network. So Silence will
not work outside of a phone with a working sim card.

Cool, and the workaround mentioned there

sudo ln
-s /usr/lib/pulse-8.0/modules/module-vchan-sink.so 
/usr/lib/pulse-9.0/modules/module-vchan-sink.so

still works like a charm.

Thanks!

[qubes-users] HCL Dell Latitude E6420 i7-2640M

2016-07-08 Thread rss+qubes
Hi guys,

I am sending this in primarily because the current HCL list online shows
the E6420 in yellow.

Whereas my experience (as of several months right now with a slightly
newer model: i7-2640M) is that Qubes works flawlessly with this
machine, from install right through to the present. I could just wish
for an SSD and a bit more RAM (currently 8G) but I really cannot find
anything to complain about except for secondary issues like the lack of
ready-to-download Ubuntu and ArchLinux templates and updates. (I know
there are license issues with Ubuntu)

Many thanks for the hard work of everyone who has gotten us this far.
My custom is to always keep a second machine in a near-identical state
as a fallback, and Qubes has now become sufficiently essential to my
digital existence that I am now shopping for a second Qubes machine so
that I will have the requisite two. Ie. Qubes OS is now my full-time
"forever" desktop environment.

As far as marketing goes, some focus should really be directed at the
virtual currency crowd. Qubes' uber-security is a natural fit for those
keeping digital wallets on their desktops.
