How do I detect being run inside a DispVM Template? @marmarek
(How do I detect being run inside a whonix-ws-dvm Template?)
- I would want to avoid tb-updater-first-boot to copy Tor Browser from root image's /var/cache/tb-binary to /home/user so the DispVM's tb-updater-first-boot will do that, rather than DispVM Template's tb-updater-first-boot.
- Therefore upgrading whonix-ws (package tb-updater) will result in fresh Tor Browser versions in whonix-wd-dvm based DispVMs (named Disp[...]).
Btw Whonix 14 getting close. (Postponed a few difficult tickets.) This ticket (T698) and T698 are the last two remaining ones as it looks now before a testers-only release can be made.
In whonix-ws-dvm the status file /var/cache/tb-updater/first-boot-home-population.done is not persistent either.
