[qubes-users] Reason to not start services via qubesrc?

2022-10-17 Thread r . wiesbach
Hi there, According to https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/qubes-service/ VMs need a qubes-specific configuration to support the usage of the VM settings "Services" tab. I assume there is a good reason for implementing it this way, so I would like to know what this reason is. My approach would be to

Sorry, I just noticed that I missed your answer because you did not answer me directly, but only to the list. The issue you reference to is quite long to read and parts of it are several years old, is there something ready for testing? You say "less often", for my imap-server imap.web.de this

Is there really no approach to fix this? What about a cron job which checks for a change DNS resolve every now and then and updates the ip-filter, for example? Am 29.07.22 um 11:08 schrieb r.wiesb...@web.de: Hi there, many large providers use CDNs or similar structures, which results in the

[qubes-users] Qube-Firewall: How to handle changing IPs?

2022-07-29 Thread r . wiesbach
Hi there, many large providers use CDNs or similar structures, which results in the same FQDN being resolved to different IPs. Afaik the Qube-Firewall-Settings resolve a DNS entry only once (on add/edit) and internaly use that IP. This is a problem with my mail-provider (web.de) as well es for

[qubes-users] Minimize to tray not possible (KeepassXC) - for security reasons?

2022-01-11 Thread r . wiesbach
Today I noticed that KeepasXC cannot minimize to Tray in Qubes. Is this for security reasons (so windows/applications cannot hide from the user) or is this a bug? And if so, it is about Qubes, Fedora, XFCE or KeepassXC? (Maybe someone has a non-Qubes fedora to quickly test that out) -- You

it seems like the docs don't answer that, do they? https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/how-to-update/ There is only a global setting for dom0 Updates, but how does it work for other qubes? Thanks. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group. To

Re: [qubes-users] Memory balancing very inefficient

2021-12-21 Thread r . wiesbach
Coming back to this topic again. I am using Qubes 4.1 rc1 now and have made the same observations again. Start of new VM/Qube is aborted due to low RAM even though some of the running qubes have >>500MB free. So again I start to manually limit all VMs to RAM sizes that seem reasonable to me.

[qubes-users] Extract image file from Qubes 4.x

2021-10-25 Thread r . wiesbach
In Qubes 4.x the images are no longer ordinary files accessible from the dom0 file system. So how can I extract them as VM images (.img files in Q 3.x) in Qubes 4.x? In the wiki I only find how to delete, but not how to extract an image fom LVM. Thank you. -- You received this message because

[qubes-users] Memory balancing very inefficient

2021-02-22 Thread r . wiesbach
Today I noticed that many VMs do get a lot more RAM than they actually use. While using only about 200-300MB small vms like -net and -firewall get gigabytes of memory and this seem to be the case even if memory is running out (sum of all VMs approaches physical RAM size). Also dom0 is using only
