Actually, virtualbox 5.2.30 also works fine with it, and it's also in the test repo. I prefer it because it's easier to theme.

Switching to the Liquorix version might have some issues if you update often, as they introduce changes and then pull them quickly when they prove to have problems--just look at the latest changelog--something obviously went wrong with those changes:

Code: Select all

linux-liquorix (5.1-4ubuntu1~xenial) xenial; urgency=medium

  * disable WireGuard module
  * disable RCU no-callback + expedited grace periods
  * revert all Clear Linux patches
  * merge new 5.1.7 release candidate patches
  * update version to 5.1.0-6.4

linux-liquorix (5.1-3) unstable; urgency=medium

  * remove problematic Clear Linux patches
   - zero extra registers
   - add scheduler turbo3 patch
  * update version to 5.1.0-6.3

linux-liquorix (5.1-2) unstable; urgency=medium

  * merge 5.1.7 release candidate patches
  * merge Clear Linux patches
  * enable WireGuard module
  * enable RCU no-callback + expedited grace periods
  * update version to 5.1.0-6.2

Just always keep your known working kernel as a backup in case you get a quirky one.

My question was meant as a hint to a possible inconsistency somewhere.
Sorry, that you read that as a request for support.
The last thing I want to do is wasting your precious time.

The new 5.2-2 Liquorix kernel is headed for the test repo.

Vbox 5.2.32 and 6.0.10 will build on it, along with our latest broadcom-sta and ndiswrapper packages. None of the Nvidia drivers will, except a patched 418.74 driver I just sent up to the test repo along with it. I hope to get the 390 drivers patched as well, and then try the legacy drivers if Debian doesn't beat me to that.
