remove vb-guest that has warning then reinstall vb-guest with option --force.
eg. dkms install virtualbox-guest/5.2.12 -k 4.1x.x --force

Code: Select all

$ dkms status
broadcom-sta, 6.30.223.271, 4.16.14, x86_64: installed
ndiswrapper, 1.61, 4.16.14, x86_64: installed
virtualbox, 5.2.12, 4.16.14, x86_64: installed
virtualbox-guest, 5.2.12, 4.16.14, x86_64: installed (original_module exists)
Have you tested that with a 4.17 kernel? Because that's the one it has a build error with. Hopefully, the 4.17 will show up in the test repo soon.

Code: Select all

$ uname -a
Linux mxmsileopard 4.17.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.17-0.1~mx17+1 (2018-06-08) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Hope this is right forum!

Is it possible to add Waterfox to the repos?

Not at the moment--it requires a much newer rustc in order to build. Maybe Debian will be able to backport that before the ESR Firefox currently in Stretch reaches end of life; I couldn't do it.

The correct forum would be the Package Request one, too. This thread is for packagers let others know what they are working on.
