Not wanting to hijack the thread,
I am enquiring here. I like to keep my system updated faithfully, but find myself then needing to manually install fedora updates through Qubes Manager, as the update widget at the top of the screen never successfully completes the task. For this reason and for my past preference for debian based systems, I would like to convert the vm’s in the title above to debian based. From the thread referred to above and past threads I’ve seen, users have suggested using debian instead of fedora for varying tasks and reasons.
Is it possible to switch from using fedora to using debian for sys-net, sys-firewall, sys-usb (and possibly fedora-32-dvm)?
Is it an advantage to do so?
And lastly how would I go about doing so?
I don’t see anything in the Docs to cover this.
I have cloned the three sys vm’s and then changed the clones to debian based vm’s. This seemed successful and I now have the vm’s sys-net-debian10, sys-firewall-debian10 and sys-usb-debian10. I then tried changing the default fedora sys files to the debian files using the Qubes Global Settings gui, hoping to do a reboot and have the debian sys vm"s up and running. The system will not let me do that. Not wanting to make my system un-startable, I’m now at a loss as to how to proceed.
