As reported elsewhere, WinXp3 and within it, HP's scanner drivers, are running perfectly in the VirtualBox-6.1.13-140124-Linux_amd64.run test build and its extension pack, with the 5.8.5 kernel.
YMMV.

Tried again after deleting everything, including the source code file, and then downloaded a "fresh" copy and started over. About 2/3 of the way through the build process it just stopped. No error.
So, I thought, well, maybe, it just didn't take as long as usual, so I ran,

make modules_install

and it came back with,
Quote:
sed: can't read modules.order: No such file or directory
make: *** [Makefile:1388: _modinst_] Error 2
I'll try again later.

OK. Third time was a charm.
The only difference between the three attempts was the first two were done in a terminal (konsole) in
kde4. The third was done at the prompt (out of X). Building in a terminal has never been a problem in the past. Don't know why it was a problem today.

Thanks again, cwizardone, for this thread. While it can be daunting how many kernels are being almost constantly updated (WAY more than back in 2.2.x days) I think it is important to note that these new kernels aren't just for bleeding edge hardware support.

Example: I have a secondary gaming boxen with a Creative Soundblaster Z sound card (8-10 years old hardware) which never, afaik, worked on a 4x kernel, would work on some 5x kernels with a LOT of patches, firmware, blood, sweat, and tears but yesterday I upgraded a long overdue stock 14.2 4.4.x kernel to 5.4.60 and it instantly worked perfectly, no sweat, no tears and the only blood in game.
