So you're using the Ubuntu kernel on MX?

I can also use the image from ubuntu also if I don't use the headers and just use the image.I download the package and install Headers and image.Then open synaptic.
It complains of broken package-I then remove headers.Then reinstall grub which installs the image,after that I reboot then choose the newest kernel from boot menu.I have to use grub customizer menu scan then save the newest kernel-then reset custom appearance 1600x1200 and save.thanks john

OK, Ukuu only installs Ubuntu kernels, so that why inxi reported

Code: Select all

 4.14.13-041413-generic
"generic" in there is an instant alert that it's an Ubuntu version.

There's no need to use Ubuntu mainline kernels.
They're somehow different from Debian's (config, built-in drivers), lack most ditro patches, compiled with latest Ubuntu (that means newer GCC so you'll have problems with 3rd-party drivers (VBox, NVidia))
Much better option would be to wait a little for Debian's backport (which usually have at least 2 releases per major kernel version) or try antiX build.

just wait for liquorix update, usually one day later if there isn't any problem or critical. otherwise they will delay until next update.

Found this concerning packaging management system.

Ubuntu uses the same packaging management system (deb and apt) and with each development cycle pulls in the latest packages from Debian and then adapts them to Ubuntu specifics and adds more features and patches where necessary. They also push changes back to Debian and often developers are Ubuntu and Debian developers.
It looks to me that packages are worked on by both ubuntu and debian by developers of the systems.thanks john
