Footnotes[edit]

  1. Whonix ™ 16.0.3.1 was built and tested with VirtualBox version 6.1.26. Newer VirtualBox versions not listed on the stable version of Whonix ™ for VirtuallBox, testers-only version of Whonix ™ for VirtuallBox or otherwise in Whonix ™ News are untested by Whonix ™ developers. This can cause issues such as instability (VirtualBox VMs not starting [archive], VMs suddenly closing, host freezing, VM black screen). It is advised to wait until newer versions of VirtualBox are recommended for use with Whonix ™.

    Newer VirtualBox versions are hard to install on Debian bullseye. Perhaps the VirtualBox host software is available (even as a Debian package) from the virtualbox.org repository, but VirtualBox guest additions are not available as a Debian package. Using an older version of VirtualBox guest additions (like the pre-installed ones) might lead to broken functionality such as an inability to resize the VM or general instability. Installation of VirtualBox guest additions from ISO might also cause issues. [archive]
