Dev/Installation from Repository

< Dev

Also known as proverbial "sudo apt-get install whonix".

It has been suggested to install Whonix from APT repository. Either from a local APT repository or from Whonix's official APT repository.

Is this technically feasible? Yes. This is how Qubes-Whonix is build. For Non-Qubes-Whonix this is unsupported, not tested by any Whonix maintainers and probably needs some work.

There is a non-qubes-whonix-gateway as well as a non-qubes-whonix-workstation meta package. So we are close to "sudo apt-get install non-qubes-whonix-gateway" and "sudo apt-get install non-qubes-whonix-workstation.".

(chroot scripts are negligible since Whonix 13.)

There are some instructions on how to do that using Whonix's APT repository.

Or if you want to install from source code, info and scripts for automation (package building, creating a local repository, installation) are mostly available. [1] [2] [3]

So in summary, what's missing?
