[SOLVED] qcow2 virtual images for Daedalus

Hi Devuan Brains Trust,

Will there be an official qcow2 virtual image available like there was for Ascii? and Devuan-Jessie?

The virtual image was very handy for testing apps out and opening suspicious emails in a secure environment.

Looking forward to your help on this!

I don't think there will be any official virtual images. There are a couple you can find by searching the web, but it's not clear who made those images.

For a secure environment, you can just boot a live-iso in a virtual machine. Once you're there, you could also install it to a virtual hard disk and make your own place for testing apps.

thanks fsmithred!

Yep, the trust verification from the volunteer images is difficult.
I eventually did what you sugggested, boot the live-iso to do the testing.
and later plan to install to a .qcow2 image.

cheers
