I want to commit a few war crimes on a system and need the OS to be hard. Qubes is something I tried out but doesn’t work on most of my hardware because low power hardware and the one it does work on which has good hardware loses all files in my efi partition after a few reboots so I’m guessing my hardware just isn’t good for it. Tried 3.2 and that worked without ever breaking but that’s legacy. I also tried the latest release candidates on 4.0 but same issues as stable 4.0.
I want qubes but without the brokeness. Any suggestions?
edit: At the moment, I am looking at using hardened gentoo for these purposes and just running up several whonix boxes with KVM and disconnecting gentoo box while arch is running. Good idea or is gentoo not good enough? Gentoo will also have only free licensed software running and no web browser or anything like that on main. Basically the main gentoo area I will treat as a dom0.
