whonix_build and whonix_build_post should not end up in home folder
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Issue with:
https://github.com/nrgaway/qubes-template-whonix/blob/06d3e9577282bceabeac0ac0f3daac427b37c4e8/whonix-gateway/02_install_groups_pre.sh

Two files owned by root and up in user's home folder.

  • ~/whonix_build_post
  • ~/whonix_build

This is an unnecessary leftover. Bad for usability.

A more appropriate folder should be chosen. Possible some sub folder under /var/lib or /var/cache?

Deletion of these files however after the build process is undesireable. Good to keep for verification/audit purposes. Less magic. Easier to grasp.

Unless... We can get rid of this temporary script creation altogether. (Related to: T369)
