Hi dcung, dancytron,

So to fix in existing version, just delete:

Package: libxml2
Pin: version 2.9.1+dfsg1-5+deb8u4

Package: libxml2-dev
Pin: version 2.9.1+dfsg1-5+deb8u4
Pin-Priority: 1001

from existing /etc/apt/preferences?


Yes, but I think it's required that there's only one empty line between the pinned sections, not 2 or 3.
And, for safety, better remove wget section also, after all it appeared to be not a good idea to pin these packages.
(it was done to make the ISO smaller because the newer versions need more dependencies)

Thanks. I also had to unmark wget and libxml2 in synaptic.

Yes, reminds me that there's also /var/lib/synaptic/preferences (holds the "pinned" configuration specially for synaptic) that needs editing to make the change complete.

@dcung You may want to edit that file , or just rename it to /var/lib/synaptic/preferences.bak

Fred

Hi, having followed your instructions i got virtuabox running,
although i had to install linux-headers-ALL, not included in the mini-devx.

Now more virtualbox woes, i get an error message:

[ 304.538959] vboxdrv: disagrees about version of symbol cpu_tlbstate
[ 304.538964] vboxdrv: Unknown symbol cpu_tlbstate (err -22)

Searching around it seems that i would have to recompile the kernel with "make clean", and perhaps install some more packages...

I'm absolutely unsure about any of this, and any help to get virutalbox properly functionning on the StarterKit will be greatly appreciated.
