Kernel 4.18 –> X does not start in VirtualBox
« on: 2018/08/16, 19:53:21 »

X does not start, because VirtualBox Guest Additions are not adapted to the new kernel yet.
–> Use kernel 4.17.14 as fallback.
(This problem is in VirtualBox only. As hardware install kernel 4.18 works fine.)

The current version of the virtualbox-guest-... packages is 5.2.18-dfsg-1.
Most likely we have to wait for their next upgrade to run any of the 4.18... kernels with X in virtualbox.
(Text mode does work fine.)

Why are you looking for salvation in broken dfsg versions?

This morning virtaulbox has been upgraded to version 5.2.18-dfsg-2 .
Now kernel 4.18.5 boots fine – no problems with the graphical environment anymore.
