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.

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                                     
4097
empty@zed:~ $

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

Could you elaborate? If you're using out-of-tree DKMS drivers, lots of those have problems at first with new kernels.

Hmmm...backported the Siduction 5.3 kernel to Buster and Stretch, and most of the DKMS drivers failed to build on it, but this laptop can boot and get on the Net just fine without them--though of course the Nvidia driver didn't build for Bumblebee, either.

A backport of the 430.50 Nvidia in testing does build with the 5.3 kernel, but doesn't work when I try to switch GPUs with Bumblebee and "optirun". However, it does work after a backport and install of the 435 drivers in Experimental. I think someone here using testing also reported that weeks ago, but testing and Sid still have the same 430.50.

I have a patch for ndiswrapper from Ubuntu for the 5.3 kernel, though I can't remember the last time i saw a post from anyone that used ndiswrapper successfully.
