Re: kernel nvidia dkms rebuild after upgrade?

Hello Dan — thanks kindly, I had indeed not noticed….

I guess I’ll have a chance to test if the libelf-dev issue is really the fix when the patches do roll out.

In that vein, I would like to note that https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2017-5754  makes no mention of bpo kernels in backports.  Is this by design?

To avoid a false sense of security: according to [1], [2], [3], the
current stretch-bpo kernel (linux-image-4.14.0-0.bpo.2-$arch) does *NOT*
yet include any mitigations against meltdown.
