Sarge's Qubes OS Experiment

Alright folks, I’ve decided to start an experiment where I run Qubes on my laptop, hopefully for everything. Since I’ll be on production-only support for the next week and a half, I’ve got some time to get a suitable workflow up and running.

I’ve got a checklist of things I need to get working on my qubes install before I’m happy with it:

:x: i3wm
:x: all my environment customizations from Arch
:x: st, because fuck xterm
:x: zsh
:x: proper qubes for all my environments, on distros I’m happy with
:x: proper vpn configuration

Let’s get started, shall we?

In the interest of disclosure, I’m running on an XPS 15 9570 with an i7-8750h, with 16GB of ram and 500GB ssd. I encountered no issues with the install.

First hiccup:

Every single time I reboot my system, dom0 nukes my i3 configuration. roll eyes

I’m not entirely sure how to approach this, might have to look into it on their forum.
