I noticed when trying to install Qubes 4.1 rc 2 after you install and you boot into the initial setup I don’t seem to be able to CTR + ALT+F* to to enter a tty. I think it might work be working functionally but I don’t have a good way to verify because the only difference is my mouse disappears.
This is some what of and issue for me because I have to use a script to keep the sys-net from using my wireless card during setup or it will crash making qubes unusable. So far as long as sys-net isn’t installed everything goes smoothly.
I see in another post that the initial setup can be relaunched using
sudo /usr/libexec/initial-setup/initial-setup-graphical . Maybe I will try without installing sys-net run the script from dom0 then try to install sys-net.
I might also try restoring backups of the vms that I have in 4.0.4 and see how that goes.
