Quote from: paxmark1 on November 20, 2016, 10:11:33 PMdid you get to the series of linear output [ 496.151195] Service: Status or actionWhat does the looping error message exactly say.
Quote from: paxmark1 on November 20, 2016, 10:11:33 PMEDIT on #debian-next someone seems to have had a similar problem after a restart. Was there a libinput upgrade recently? Also - poster on debian-next had more luck with kernel 4.7 than 4.8 so also try safe-mode with 4.7And if you do get to a command line of course the old faithful "dpkg --configure -a" might be helpful and for dpkg the -f switch does not mean force but fix. peace out
Quote from: pavroo on November 20, 2016, 11:11:57 PMThe problem has been made after (during) upgrading. The system has to by succesfully upgraded to be fixed, so... 1. Try to log in safe mode, and run "dpkg --configure -a" as paxmark1 said

Quote from: pavroo on November 21, 2016, 02:20:49 PMI suggest to reinstall the 4.8 kernel (via Synaptic) as first job.If no luck, install Liquorix or Sparky kernel to give it a try.
