How to install *-minimal-dvm template?


Following the docs I installed successfully fedora-36-minimal using the first command shown there. However, when I run:

sudo qubes-dom0-update qubes-template-fedora-36-minimal-dvm

I get:

qvm-template: error: Template 'fedora-36-minimal-dvm' not found.

What do I need to do to have a minimal-dvm template?

FWIW, my bigger goal is to create a sys-dns as described in here and the minimal-dvm is a prerequisite.

Install the template without dvm, and then you make an AppVM with that template and set that vm to be disposable.


…and (just in case it’s not clear), you name the AppVM to be ‘fedora-36-minimal-dvm’

[I personally find that naming convention to be a bit confusing, it’s not the dvm, it’s the template for the dvm. This matters if you create a named DVM because that DVM will have a permanent presence in menus and the manager, and it, rather than the template, should be called a dvm. So my DVM templates are named *-dvmt instead.]
