Whonix on PPC64el
« on: December 24, 2020, 10:21:47 am »
Hi All,

I've followed the instructions found on this link https://wiki.raptorcs.com/wiki/Whonix

I've created KVM VMs using Debian 10.7 ISO images but when trying to install non-qubes-whonix-gateway-xfce or non-qubes-whonix-gateway-cli I could not solve dependency issues.

Has anyone succeeded creating these VMs?

I have them working on a x86 machine with the same Fedora33 I use on my Blackbird.

Thanks

JeremyRand

Can you post the exact output of the apt command that fails?  This sounds similar to an issue that I reported upstream to Whonix, which was subsequently fixed.

Hey Jeremy, this is the output I got:

claudio@debian10:~$ sudo apt-get install non-qubes-whonix-gateway-xfce

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

The VM where I've issued this command was created with debian-10.9.0-ppc64el-xfce-CD-1.iso.

Any ideas?

Interesting.  Definitely resembles my recollection of the bug that I got fixed a while back.  I'll see if I can find time to look at this soon, hopefully this weekend.  (Alas, this is not covered by my dayjob, so won't be able to look at it immediately.)

Cheers!
