Patrick closed T60: USB Image as Invalid.

Indeed. The rest is tracked under component Whonix-Host.

onion_knight2 added a comment to T60: USB Image.

Should we close this ticket since Whonix-Host is precisely a "usb stick with whonix installed and ready to boot", already available as an ISO image, even if still in early stage?

Yes, worth it. I guess lots of people are going to try Whonix-Host inside a virtual machine before considering installation on real hardware. That's why I even would like to have ability to run Whonix-Host inside VirtualBox.

Please add your build commands to Whonix wiki Dev/Whonix-Host, then I can add suggestion there how to improve these.

Not sure what you mean here?

That's probably because of T950. You'd need to remove both:

quiet loglevel=0

I see. But I won't lose time to debug this particular build, I will just try a new one and see if the problem persists. Had some problems with lack of space on the VM I am building with, maybe related. Not worth debugging if it's a one time thing. We'll see.

Yes, by all means. Please do.
Generally, most non-controversial (and this one certainly is) wiki edits can be done without prior asking.

onion_knight2 added a comment to T969: instructions how to burn Whonix-Host ISO image to DVD or USB.

Warning: Whonix-Host is experimental software and still in early development. It is currently still lacking some core features, such as persistent installation in EFI mode or a working firewall on the Host, and is not yet ready for production, nor intended for end-users, only developers. Please see https://forums.whonix.org/t/whonix-host-developers-only-preview-version-15-0-1-2-7-released/9360 for more information on its development state. Help welcome.

What is Whonix-Host?
Whonix-Host is a complete Operating System provided by Whonix developers specifically designed to run Whonix virtual machines ("Whonix-Gateway" and "Whonix-Workstation").

onion_knight2 added a comment to T914: Whonix Host Live - enable KVM readonly mode - virt-xml vm-name --edit --disk readonly=on.

That would be OK but this is not my preferred solution. Reason: an unclean shutdown in Whonix installed persistent mode would with a subsequent boot into live mode would result in a failed reboot into Whonix installed live mode.

As of Whonix-Host 15.0.1.2.7 each environment (Host, gw, ws) has its own background color.
