Really? DKMS should handle that, that is exactly it's job. So if that
really does not work automatically (after getting it "kick started" by
installing the headers the first time), then there is something wrong.

Do you get new headers automatically when there is a new Proxmox kernel?
In other words is there a meta package for the headers that is updated
when they release a new kernel?

This should be something like "linux-headers-amd64" (but likely with
some "pve" in it's name). Or are there only pkgs for a specific release,
like: linux-headers-4.14.0-3-common/linux-headers-4.14.0-3-amd64. Again,
this is the output from a normal Debian box, Proxmox mixes in some "pve"

Or I'm holding my DKMS magic for the kernel wrong ;-).

Feedback would be great.

Thanks, rck
