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.

For now, I'm sticking with the 4.19 Liquorix kernel.

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.

That's exactly right, Meanwhile, regarding security/updates, I am not much secrure at all, ofcourse i have taken some measures that is not enough, After all i can't do more than i can handle.
Well keeping and old system as it can run, enough to see how much it holds. I see there is always a place for it.

When the hardware is old enought (13 years old), there is no reason to rush. However, the applications that i'm interest are moslty up to date due to compile.
I have other more refreshed systems, in Debian i am three years behind.

Wants a weird one?
My personal things go better with this old one than the new one.

The old ones is very very light, the others new systems with a lot of memory and newest hardware are more slow in actions.
Lastly, keeping something old at work is no longer a matter of trend, but the love for it.

Interesting observation. And what is the specification of the new hardware?

Exactly! I also use old hardware.

When I said new in fact i mean new compared to the old I have since 2007, the new is Acer Aspire 5 (Core i3) 8GB MEM even this one is not the newest, contrary, i may call old aswell. Why is slow in actions? well, due to a lot of nowdays complexity. Only a Browser needs over 1GB, I was talking to a friend of mine and he was telling me, do you still use 8GB of RAM? He intended i should have 16GB ore more and DDR4 to swim quietly on the Internet or apps. At the same time i surprised him with Debian 8 (jessie) 20MB startup, 30MB file Manager 200MB Pale Moon 350MB BluRay M2TS via MPV within 450MB + a few cli apps together. He opened his eyes and didn't believe what saw, just after i told to check top, neofetch, free -m etc ... he hardly believed, said i have made a trick of fake the results, infact i have made some tricks to optimize system + apps, but never faked the results, he also not believe that Linux especially from 2005-2014 could be so lightly.
None1975 wrote:Exactly! I also use old hardware.
My old DELL i don't like to mix with new systems. Ofcourse i can manage to run if i put more mem or change processor, but isn't worth really. There is almost none support for 2007 systems, Even things in the future may be removed from kernel the next spring cleaning. So updating is pointless now, Apps can be refreshed, with few difficulties. So, my Jessie is the last on the quarantine, i used to tweak for decade this old horse, he did the best he can. Stressed under 400MB with apps of 2GB MEM on total.

I usually do my things myself after #! time, NETINST gives us quite of chances. So, to me is the best selection.

We are off topic for such conversations, I am not continuing anymore before mod attract me attention :)
Thanks for reading and posting mate.
