Hi Bill,

I think you will run in trouble sooner or later the way you did, simple example: failed to install libc6-dev because of libc6 v 2.28-10 installed (see pic).
(I did immediately remove the beowulf lines and apt-get update)

Better use the stretch-backports repo instead.

Could you give me some instructions for using the backports kernel? I believe that I tried this once and failed.

Regarding DevuanDog: I still have problems on some bleeding-edge machines with video. Part way through the boot sequence, I get a black screen of death.

But using the 01-filesystem.squashfs from Stretch works. I suspect some little problem with the X in Devuan.

When I run upgrade-kernel-bpo, I get an empty list for Select a Kernel. I fixed that by setting VER=4.19 in the script.

But I then get an error when it tries to build aufs - something about BUILD_EXCLUSIVE in a dkms.conf file.

So I quit.

Yes upgrade-kernel-bpo needs updated, I did already work on it but wanted to test more, I'm now investigating if it's possible to keep the beowulf kernel and use linux-headers from backports (probably not, but worth trying)
Back later.

Fred

This is not a big problem. I am interested in kernel upgrades because some of my machines have hardware (touchpads, wifi) that are not supported by the 4.9.x kernel.

In the past, I have found work-arounds by dropping in a Puppy kernel or hand-compiling drivers. But using a Debian 4.19.x kernel makes it far easier.

On my nvidia machines, nouveau+mesa is usually adequate, and those machines don't really need a kernel upgrade anyway. So people who want the nvidia Xorg driver can stick with k4.9.x or try my procedure above.

Nvidia driver install didn't work by keeping the beowulf kernel and use backports linux-headers
Here's fixed upgrade-kernel-bpo:
https://fredx181.github.io/StretchDog/amd64/Packages/Extra/upgrade-kernel-bpo_0.0.5_all.deb
I tested only by choosing the "unsigned" kernel. on 64 and 32 bit and works.
EDIT: e.g: linux-image-4.19.0-0.bpo.6-amd64-unsigned

For the rest I'm not sure if the backports repo has the nvidia driver you need.

Fred

I did the backports upgrade on my nvidia machine and it worked.

But I can't figure out what to put in the /etc/apt/sources.list that will find the backports kernel when I run
Code:
apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)


Update with the correct procedure: I used
Code:
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch-backports main contrib non-free

and
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) -t stretch-backports
apt-get install nvidia-detect
nvidia-detect
apt-get install nvidia-xxx -t stretch-backports

This installed nvidia correctly.

Yes, for me also, message about linux-compiler-gcc-6-x86 not installable
Took me a while to figure out how, added this to sources.list:
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch-backports main contrib non-free

And point it explicitly to stretch-backports (don't know why that's needed):
Code:
apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) -t stretch-backports


Probably for the nvidia driver install you need to do that too (-t stretch-backports)

EDIT: just see your update,black screen strange...
The nvidia install went for the backports kernel ? And did you use -t stretch-backports?

Fred

Both the "/" and "-t" notations work the same for me.

But both end up with a black screen on reboot.

That's a pity !
If you are sure that the nvidia driver was installed from stretch-backports and was built for the 4.19 backports kernel, I don't know why it didn't work.

That was it! I had to also use
Code:
apt-get install nvidia-xxx -t stretch-backports


Now it works.

This machine also has a Broadcom wifi card. So I ran
Code:
apt-get install broadcom-sta-dkms -t stretch-backports

That worked too.

Ok! Better this way than a system containing beowulf binaries that is broken Wink

I have posted here an update to the script for building a LibreOffice squashfs module.

It can now handle optional language packs. Read the howto.txt file for details.

Please provide feedback.

I have posted here a .deb driver package for some nVidia video cards. It is intended for 64bit Stretch setups with the k4.19.0-6-amd64 upgrade. I built the package against a GeForce 310 card which uses nVidia's combo 340.107 driver. It also supports a variety of other cards. Provided that it matches your hardware, it is much easier to use than the "official" Debian install procedure.

As with all nVidia drivers, you should back up your changes folder before proceeding. If something goes wrong, you may not be able to restore the nouveau driver.

After installing, X may not immediately start and drops out to a prompt. Run "nvidia-xconfig" and "startx".
