      I tried the 4.13.4 kernel, but I got errors on rebuild of the broadcom, ndiswrapper, and virtualbox dkms drivers. Any thoughts?

        I got nothing new enough to justify installing a newer kernel. So no thoughts from this corner. Everything I got roks and rolls fine on 4.10.

        Maybe BitJam, Skidoo,others, and Anti have answers

          Try to build them again after the kernel has been installed via apt-get install –reinstall nameofapp

            here’s the output of dpkg-reconfigure broadcom-sta-dkms, which is what I’ve used in the past to rebuild modules.

              Tried the 4.13.4-antix.1-amd64-smp x86_64 on my desktop-PC and every thing went very well. There are no broadcom, ndiswrapper or virtualbox dkms drivers on this system so there weren’t even errors.It built fine against my installed proprietary nvidia driver. dmesg lookes good.

              But, after this nice experience I yesterday tried to install the kernel on my Lenovo T60.
              Can confirm the dkms errors.

              It boots but can not be used.Made some pictures.
              Even booting in level 3 looks strange.
              I know its not justified to install the newest kernel on this laptop ,just wanted to let you know.

                To complete this
                I now tried to install the linux-image-4.13.0-1-amd64 with headers from debian with the same bad result and the same dkms errors for broadcom, ndiswrapper and virtualbox
                So this laptop needs older kernels.

                  Ha,after following another thread here, I tried again some boot parameters.And the solution was so simple.The “vga=791” had to be deleted.
                  Here it is, my old laptop with the 4.13-kernel.

                    Thanks caprea, we should probably remember that issue and solution.

                    A new set of broadcom-sta-dkms, ndisrapper and virtualbox dkms stuff has been uploaded. This (on my boxes at least) does not cause issues with existing antiX 4.10.5 kernel and the newer 4.13.4 one.

                    There is/will shortly be 4.14.1 antiX kernels hitting the repos for 64 bit and 686-pae, but not for 486 (seems pointless to me).
                    In my tests, running live with virtualbox-guest-utils etc doesn’t work, but virtualbox does work ok when using this kernel on an installed system.
                    I have been using this kernel for a couple of days without issues and, as I said, virtualbox works.

                      Yep, I forgot to mention that the kernel was installed new again on a updated system without any dkms errors.
