Yes, it has been reported on the Debian kernel maillists already, many times. I've posted a link to a thread about the bug, no?

I am experiencing the same problem on a similar configuration (4.9.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.65-3+deb9u1 et Gnome 3.22 ).

Does anyone have the reference of kernel that I may install to solve the problem ?

Thanks

I just installed the latest kernel 4.9.0-5, and to my surprise (or not) the problem was not fixed.

I don't know if it would work for you or not, I don't have the issue, but you might try a kernel from backports.

The bug is now fixed in the latest stable-proposed linux upgrade:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... =884116#82
I will test it and report back.
EDIT: It is fixed :D

Wheelerof4te are you using 4.9.0-5-amd64?

Because I am running this version of kernel and still have the problem. So, I started to think that I may have an issue in the hardware?

No, no, no. Read what I've written correctly. You need stable-proposed repo for now:
https://www.debian.org/releases/proposed-updates.html
Add this repo:
Code: Select all
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch-proposed-updates main contrib non-free

Then
Code: Select all
apt update
apt upgrade

Got it.

I will test it out and let everybody know if that fixed the issue.

Thanks for the info!

First of all, pardon for my English :? . Look I noticed that this error occurs with frequency in intel integrated video devices from the series 5000. Although the bug 884116 was closed in the last update (linux/4.9.80-1), I still have problems with my notebooks. I have 2 notebooks, a Lenovo with intel hd video 5500 and an Asus X202E intel hd4000 video. Only Lenovo introduces the video problem.

One solution I found was:
enter text mode. (Usually CTRL + ALT + F3)

with proper permission to write to system folders I created the 20-intel.conf file in the path below:
Code: Select all
nano /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf


Now enter the following content:

Code: Select all
Section "Device"
       Identifier "Intel Graphics"
       Driver "intel"
       Option "AccelMethod" "SNA"
       Option "TearFree" "True"
EndSection


Using the nano to save the file the command is CTRL + O and Close with CTRL + X.

I rebooted the machine apparently did not have any more problems. To test I did a clean installation using KDE and also Gnome apparently solved the problem reported in bug 884116

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=884116

I believe that just like other users my problems started while upgrading from kernel version 4.9.51-1 to 4.9.65-3. I am currently using the Linux version debian 4.9.0-5-amd64 # 1 SMP Debian 4.9.65-3 + deb9u2 (2018-01-04) x86_64 GNU / Linux
I removed the 20-intel.conf file to test how the system behaved. Soon after rebooting the system and opening the first konsole in the KDE or GNOME terminal the problems came back. I re-created the file and rebooted the system, the problem disappears. Creating this file solves the problem of a disk installation. The problem is that sometimes I need to use the Debian live CD so I can not create this file and reboot. Cheering for the next point release (9.4 or 9.3.1) will definitely solve the problem.

Update! :D

I just tested the Debian update 4.9.80-2 (Available only after enabling "stretch-proposed-updates") Apparently this update fixes the problem effectively without the need for manual creation of the 20-intel.conf file. Now it is to wait for this update to be available in the main updates channel. :D

The Proposed repositories fixed the problem for me too.

Thanks!
