Template:Build Documentation Whonix APT Repository

Whonix's APT Repository is disabled by default since Whonix 7.3.3. You may enjoy this for Trust reasons. You can later update Whonix debian packages from source code if you want. If you are interested in enabling Whonix's APT repository right after building (you could do that also after booting your build for the first time if you wanted) for convenience while sacrificing the extra security of not updating from source code, click on Expand on the right side.

Do you want to opt-in for Whonix's APT Repository? You can do this using an environment variable or build configuration. Below is an example using an environment variable.

WHONIX_APT_REPOSITORY_OPTS='--enable --repository stable'
WHONIX_APT_REPOSITORY_OPTS='--enable --repository testers'
WHONIX_APT_REPOSITORY_OPTS='--enable --repository developers'
WHONIX_APT_REPOSITORY_OPTS='--enable --codename jessie'

Add an environment variable as one can usually do that on the Linux platform. For example, if you wanted to enable Whonix stable repository during build, you could set WHONIX_APT_REPOSITORY_OPTS by interjecting it between sudo and the ./whonix_build command. Below is an example. Do not use [...]. Replace it with your other build parameters (such as --build, <code>--target etc.) after ./whonix_build.

sudo WHONIX_APT_REPOSITORY_OPTS='--enable --repository stable' ./whonix_build [...]
