I built the latest LTS kernel. Only thing I needed to do is build broadcom-sta-source from backports. It's easy with module-assistant.

Doesn't it work with broadcom-sta-dkms from backports to automate the builds?

For what it's worth, I'm also backporting the upstream Debian kernels to Stretch in an OBS repo:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... linux-4.17

Works fine on my machine, even with the new 20180703.2 firmware backported. But YMMV.

Instructions (don't install the linux-source-4.17 package, that's just a common package between the builds needed to access the automatically-generated instruction page on the OBS. Just install the new linux-image and linux-headers after adding the repo and its key.)

https://software.opensuse.org//download ... ource-4.17
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: mvp 0.29.0, Pale Moon 28.0.0, wine-staging 3.13, qBittorrent 4.1.2, Linux kernel 4.17.14, virtualbox 5.2.18

It should work, but I decided against it.
Don't know why, maybe this way was more "fun", or at least more involving. I will be upgrading kernels manually...I have the LAN cable at the ready if it's needed.
I also copied firmware from upstream git for my AMD R5 330m card to /lib/firmware/radeon. Naturally, firmware-adm-graphics package was uninstalled, as it's no longer needed.

EDIT: Linux 4.14.53 is running here without any issues.
EDIT2: Video playback on X in Totem skips and micro-freezes. Audio also grinds on some programs. Cue Wayland, and everything works great. Weird.

Today I'm running a few vms on VirtualBox, so booted from the 4.14 kernel.

Code: Select all
cat /proc/version
Linux version 4.14.0-0.bpo.3-amd64 (debian-kernel@lists.debian.org) (gcc version 6.3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18)) #1 SMP Debian 4.14.13-1~bpo9+1 (2018-01-14)


Other days, I'll use one of the other backport kernels; 4.15, 4.16, 4.17.
