I am trying to get a handle on which templates are available in Qubes OS (R4.0).
I see on https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/templates/ the following:
- Official: Debian, Fedora
- Community: Whonix, Ubuntu, Arch Linux, Cent OS
When I run
qubes-dom0-update --action=search qubes-template, I receive a list of available packages:
Am I correct these are the only ones installable via
Though Whonix, CentOS, Ubuntu, and Arch Linux are listed in the Community category, it appears Ubuntu and Arch have to be manually built. Why is there no prebuilt rpm for these?
The primary reason I ask is because I’ve tried to build both with qubes-builder and while the Arch Linux build worked, the Bionic Ubuntu build failed. The problem is I can’t find a resource that explains if that’s to be expected, how the template is maintained, and where to go for issues building (as these are Community templates)? I saw https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/5975, but the error there doesn’t match the one I had, and I am unsure if the Qubes team wants qubes-issues on Github to be muddied with Community template-related issues.
