usually whatever kernel is stock for the Debian release I'm using.
Sometimes I use the backports kernel for the Debian release.
Sometimes I use the default kernel from the next Release or two
to see if a bug is fixed in the newer kernel.
And since I haven't been able to get my old i386 Etch install to boot on this machine amd64 - with a stock kernel
I can still boot it using Lennys' kernel.
I can than chroot into sarge and run Xfree86 from that host.
whatever works

I did backport, install, and run the experimental Debian 4.20 kernel, but you'll have to go outside of Debian to get virtualbox 6 and Nvidia drivers to build on it at the moment.

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... .20-kernel

For now, I'm sticking with the 4.19 Liquorix kernel.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Flightgear 2018.2.2, 4..20.6 kernel, wine-staging 4.0 final, Sayonara 1.1.1, Calibre 3.39.1, Pale Moon 28.3.1

Back on stable:
Code: Select all
empty@zed:~ $ cat /proc/version
Linux version 4.9.0-8-amd64 (debian-kernel@lists.debian.org) (gcc version 6.3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18+deb9u1) ) #1 SMP Debian 4.9.130-2 (2018-10-27)
empty@zed:~ $ cat /proc/sys/kernel/tainted                                     
empty@zed:~ $

The taint shows a non-GPL out-of-tree kernel module (zfs).

Just let normal updates install what's relevant.
