    On antiX17 stretch-repos the virtual-guest-dkms does not match with the others.

    I removed the 3 virtualbox-guest packages and rebuilt dkms again, without errors this time.

    I also installed 4.9.87 kernel to the other (old, too) laptop (see below), without remove the 3 virtualbox-guest packages before. No installation or rebuilding dkms errors.

    Repos seem to me the same for both laptops. For the P4 (no errors) one:

    For the celeron (virtualbox errors) one:

               deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free

    But the important thing for me is that both laptops seem to work well with 4.9.87 kernel.

    Hi guys,

    update on my 32 bit machine:

    Distro: antiX-16.1_386-full Berta Cáceres
    Type: Laptop System: Acer product: Extensa 5220
    Dual Core model: Intel Core2 Duo T7500
    (3 GB RAM, 120 GB SSD )

    4.9.91.antix.1 kernel
    Total fail! 🙁
    System now needs up to two minutes until login screen (with 4.4.109 it took around 30 seconds)
    External mouse doesn’t work anymore. Sound cracks. A few seconds later the whole system freezes.
    No good!

    4.4.125.antix.1 kernel
    Works perfect! 🙂
    No issues so far, boot time around 33 seconds.
    Good job! 🙂
