I managed to backport Debian Sid's 4.15.17 kernel to Stretch

Good news, everyone!

On the openSUSE build service,in case anyone wants to give it a spin. I discovered a few quirks I had to fix first and worked around those. I also made a few small changes to the kernel configuration:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... nux-source

INSTRUCTIONS:

As root or with sudo:
Code: Select all
echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser:/kernel-backports/Debian_9.0/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/backport-kernel.list

As normal user:
Code: Select all
rm -f Release.key && wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser:/kernel-backports/Debian_9.0/Release.key -O Release.key


As root or with sudo:

Code: Select all
apt-key add - < Release.key

Code: Select all
apt-get update


Install the 4.15.0-3 linux-image and header packages for your architecture.
Users of out-of-tree drivers such as Nvidia or broadcom-sta will have to use the
updates of those from stretch-backports.

Adding 4.16.5 kernel backported from Sid to the repo. However, it seems to need the 390.48 Nvida driver from stretch-backports if you use that driver. The 384.111 nvidia-driver will build and install, but not work.
