I have:

# lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:Ubuntu
Description:Ubuntu 17.10

# uname -a
Linux e7240 4.13.0-17-generic #20-Ubuntu SMP Mon Nov 6 10:04:08 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

And the following fails:

Code: Select all
# dkms build -m veeamsnap -v

Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...

Ubuntu 17.10 support will be introduced in the upcoming VAL 2.0 version this year. For now please contact our support directly to obtain the fix.

The same is on LinuxMint 18.3 (Ubuntu 16.04 based), so it's not an Ubuntu version.
