[qubes-users] WiFi NetVM works at first, then not on restart

I created a NetVM and attached my WIFI card to it, worked great and I connected to the network. Later killed the VM and restarted (restarted the computer actually) - no go. Even though "lspci" shows the card still attached and available, the WiFI Network connect widget says no network devices

[qubes-users] Security Best Practice: Cache web passwords in custom VM's or not?

2016-08-27 Thread Cube
Assume you have a disconnected Vault VM with your passwords, and a Shopping VM where you access Amazon, etc. Highest security is to copy/paste passwords over from the Vault as needed. Less secure (but still highly secure) is to cache them in the Firefox database. What path do people generally

Figure it out, documented here for others. The problem is for whatever reason the kernel module for my card (Intel laptop WIFI) wasn't being properly probed for and loaded. So I added the following line to /rw/config/rc.local and made the file executable cp /rw/config/iwlwifi-net.conf

[qubes-users] Burning a USB attached CDROM

2016-08-26 Thread Cube
Would like to do some rc2 testing and have a USB CDROM which I believe is supported? AFAIK it's the internal drives which can't be done. I installed 'wodim' but it's not seeing any drivers. Attaching the block device to a VM doesn't work either (the CDROM isn't visible to wodim). I tried

Congratulations! The updated graphics driver is very welcome, finally my screen brightness works and I'm sure it'll be more stable. One issue is my sys-wifi which uses an Intel wireless card. This worked perfectly in the 3.1 but now I get a kernel crash in the module responsible for my card,
