Thank you very much for the response... I'm replacing "crashing" with "not starting" :) This is no surprise as it can not load the Vmod...

What are the dependencies for successfully building the vmods on Ubuntu 17.10? Is it only the "varnish-dev" package out of the packagecloud repository? Or do I need anything else?

Sorry for the questions, we are more webdevelopers than linux developers. Are there any plans to provide a varnish-modules package for 6.0?

Careful with words like "crashing", you'll skyrocket our blood pressure :)

We have yet to produce a release compatible with Varnish 6...

Do you see these errors when building from the master branch? If so, and if you have a github account, please open an issue. If you don't have a github account please share compilation errors from the master branch.
