Hi, i see 5.3 in no-subscription list, does that mean that it is out of test?
It's still opt-in, so not completely. But we had really good experience with it, and also got some positive feedback here so that it was decided that it's safe to open it up for more easier testing for a wider audience.
We will probably switch soon to 5.3 as default kernel, though.
So does this mean we don’t have to enable the test repository any more to install the 5.3 kernel and it can be installed using “apt install” if the no-subscription repository is enabled? I don't see the 5.3 Kernel listed as part of the "Available Updates" panel in the Web GUI?
Regarding the switch to the 5.3 kernel as default, would this be for PVE6 or expected in PVE6.1?
You can just install the respective headers package.
apt install pve-headers-5.3
If you have a low priority Debian testing repo added, you can then also just do:
apt install wireguard-dkms
Works good here since over a year
Wireguard is broken for me though with this version. I had wireguard-dkms already installed before the upgrade (The package itself was showing as "latest version installed"), and while dkms was compiling it failed with some unsupported data structure exception.
pve-headers-5.3to get the 5.3 based headers.
pve-headersmeta package still points to
wget "http://download.proxmox.com/debian/pve/dists/buster/pvetest/binary-amd64/pve-headers-5.3.10-1-pve_5.3.10-1_amd64.deb" dpkg -i pve-headers-5.3.10-1-pve_5.3.10-1_amd64.deb

Do you don't get the hangs anymore with kernel 5.3?
Me and some other Proxmox users (still on kernel kernel 5.0.21-4-pve) are affected by that bug too... see my post or other posts. I even tried Intels driver v3.6.0 but I get the same network issues with kernel-tree driver 3.2.6-k
dpkg -s pve-kernel-5.3.10-1-pve
