    WARNING: This is a playground to test debian/buster with pve NOT PRODUCTION READY

    I have my main Workstation and my Laptop on Debian buster (aka testing!) so I decided to create my own pve packages for this release
    as I didn't want to downgrade to Debian stretch (aka stable!).

    This wasn't a straight download-compile-upload task, will provide my patches soon and the more of you have fun with testing buster the more patches will come. :)


    Known Bugs:

    - spice seems not to work.


    Installation:

    - Configure /etc/hosts as in https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Install_Proxmox_VE_on_Debian_Stretch

    - Add my release key to your trusted keys:

    $ sudo wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/lxch-pve-release.gpg http://repo.lxch.eu/~pve/lxch_pve_release.gpg

    - Add my repo to your sources:

    $ echo "deb http://repo.lxch.eu/~pve/debian buster-pvetest/" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/buster-pvetest.list

    - apt update and apt install proxmox-ve

    $ apt update && apt install proxmox-ve


    Remove Debians 4.16 kernel (to make LXC containers work):

    $ apt purge linux-image-amd64 linux-headers-4.16.0-1-amd64

    @r.jochum will you consider upgrading your packages for Proxmox 5.3?

    @mdgraber atm. I don't have time to update, is it important for you or do you just want to test it?

    As you I'm running my home lab on Debian Buster so I'd like to upgrade to the new 5.3 version. I'd be happy to create the packages myself if you'd be able to explain how. I'll also look if it's possible to run 5.3 on Buster 'normally'. Thanks!
