Basically after a successful installation of Qubes and rebooting the laptop 
gets to this message:
"Booting from Hard Disk..."
And nothing happens. It just hangs there.

The Chromebook has legacy bios support through SeaBios on CoreBoot. There isn't 
anything to setup.

[qubes-users] Qubes OS v3.2 on Chromebook Pixel 2015

2016-12-03 Thread rspeiglvera
I've tried to install Qubes on my Pixel twice. The install boots nicely and 
everything seems to go well. Once I reboot, the boot process gets hung up and 
never makes it past to the decryption step.

Any ideas or recommendations?

Same here, the error is:
No valid signed tag found!

Re: [qubes-users] Re: Qubes 4.x and Librem 13

2016-11-25 Thread rspeiglvera
It seems that Purism has failed to follow through on its promise to provide 
open firmware (i.e coreboot) and overstated it's capability to provide a 
completely free firmware (i.e. libreboot). As a result, they have left many 
unhappy customers and/or prospective customers. I doubt that we will ever have 
libreboot on current/new Intel hardware.

Optimistically speaking, a truly open hardware ecosystem (i.e. Risc-V, 
OpenPower) will likely take ~3-10 years to become commercially viable. 
Considering the pragmatic approach that Qubes OS is taking, it would seem ideal 
to get the most secure and privacy-protecting hardware in the short-term until 
such time that we can have "truly" secure and privacy-protecting hardware in 
the long-term.

As Marek pointed out, the Librem 13 would work with Qubes OS 4.x and "may be 
somehow more secure with Coreboot (less places to hide some backdoor), but may 
be also less stable - depending how mature is Librem 13 support in Coreboot." 
As Grzesiek pointed out, waiting until 4.x to be released makes sense since "a 
better option might present itself". In addition, it would give Purism an 
opportunity to right a wrong.

That said, besides the Librem 13, I haven't seen nor heard of another laptop 
that provides hardware switches to disable camera/audio/wifi and components 
that do not require blobs (CPU excepted of course). Besides my Google Pixel LS 
Chromebook running linux, I'm unsure whether there is  a better option at this 
point.

Thanks,
Roberto

Thanks for your feedback. I heard that Coreboot was released for Librem 13 by a 
3rd party. Is that not open enough or is it that it hasn't been officially 
accepted by Librem?

[qubes-users] Qubes and GPUs for Data Science

2016-11-24 Thread rspeiglvera
I would like to use Qubes for data science work. I understand that OpenGL is 
not supported for security concerns. I'm wondering whether I could use a OpenCL 
on a GPU in Qubes for running deep learning algorithms. I'm leaning towards 
getting an AMD Vega GPU when it comes out. I guess what I am wondering is 
whether the GPU could safely be in a separate container for churning through 
machine/deep learning problems and whether there is any reason why that 
wouldn't work. 

Does that make sense? Would this be supported? Is it a security concern?

[qubes-users] Qubes and Rust

2016-11-24 Thread rspeiglvera
I would like to use Qubes for development work in Rust. I understand that Rust 
can eliminate many different sorts of memory related bugs. Would it be helpful 
to use in Qubes OS development for improving security? Are there any security 
concerns to prevent using Rust? For example, the Qubes GUI could be rewritten 
in rust... would that help security?

[qubes-users] Qubes Questions

2016-11-24 Thread rspeiglvera
First, I want to thank you for your efforts on Qubes OS, and for improving OS 
security/privacy in general. I am new to Qubes OS, have been enjoying it a lot, 
and have a few questions:

* Primarily I would like to use Qubes for data science work. I understand that 
OpenGL is not supported for security concerns. I'm wondering whether I could 
use a OpenCL on a GPU in Qubes for running deep learning algorithms. Would this 
be supported? Is it a security concern as well?

* Secondarily I would like to use Qubes for development work in Rust. I 
understand that Rust can eliminate many different sorts of memory related bugs. 
Would this be helpful to use in Qubes OS development for improving security? 
Are there any security concerns to prevent using Rust?

* Finally, I am interested in the Purism Librem 13 laptop and noticed that it 
was supported for Qubes R3.x but not R4.x. Is this because of some hardware 
issues or because R4.x hasn't been released yet?
