Maybe legacy could work for you...

I have the same computer (Inspiron 3552 Linux Edition) and I have the exact same issue. Stretch boots (after LVM password screen) on a blank screen (to be very descriptive screen backlight turns on two or three times and just goes away for ever) even in legacy mode (with a straight debian BIOS install) ... Nevertheless, I can boot with nomodeset but that's not a solution (no backlight control, some graphic issues, etc.)

Have anyone find any solutions to these problems ?

Do you have an EFI-installed stretch on your system ? Can the lack of EFI explain this kind of issues ?

My system is UEFI booted and running smoothly so far, my system was not a Linux ready model (Linux was not offered as a purchase option) but I have been successfully running 3 OS's and have tested a few others (with varying degrees of success for different distro's).
If this is a legacy boot problem that could explain why I have not experienced it as I don't use legacy options...

Is a fix for this available?
LLVMPipe is really slow.It can't even play snes games without lagging.

What do you mean ?
Legacy is useless with an EFI-installed system. And you still can boot from what ever you want by editing bios options by pressing F2 or F12 during boot.

I've finally find some time to deal with this issue. I've just installed Debian 9 (MATE) with an efi partition. As far i can tell, it seems fixed too.

I have just some errors at shutdown (i can see red stuffs on the screen) but can't really tell what all is about (to quick)... By the way, how can i check my shutdown logs ?

I have the same problems: skylake and Gallium driver (llvmpipe) for video, no special driver for intel video.
After topic viewtopic.php?f=30&t=131293&p=635323#p635323 I've moved to Debian Jessie with kernel 4.8 (now 4.9) from backports and solved initial problem with suspend and hibernation, but I could not solve problem with installing drivers for integrated intel video.

My parameters are
Code: Select all
OS: Debian 8.6
kernel: 4.9.0.0.bpo.2-amd64
windows manager: xfce
laptop model: dell 3000 latitude series (3470, looks as from the same line as laptop of topic starter)
video: Intel HD graphics
LEGACY boot (not UEFI)



inxi -G
Code: Select all
Graphics:  Card: Intel Device 1916
           Display Server: X.Org 1.19.3 driver: intel
           Resolution: 1920x1080@60.05hz
           GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.8, 256 bits)
           GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 13.0.6

Default X.Org version was 1.16.*, I installed the 1.19.3 from testing branch. But nothing has changed, gallium is still taking place.
I tried to change boot setting in bios from legacy to UEFI, but bios said, that such setting couldn't be change.

Is there any other variants to make video work with appropriate driver only with legacy boot, that is without UEFI?

To solve issues with Inspiron 3552, Debian 8 and LLVM, you have to upgrade those following packages from jessie-backports. Then, you have to restart your computer. I don't really know which one solve the problem. But, together, they solve it.

Code: Select all
binfmt-support (2.1.5-1)
libffi-dev (3.1-2+b2)
libjsoncpp0 (0.6.0~rc2-3.1)
libllvm3.8 (1:3.8.1-12~bpo8+1)
llvm-3.8 (1:3.8.1-12~bpo8+1)
llvm-3.8-dev (1:3.8.1-12~bpo8+1)
llvm-3.8-runtime (1:3.8.1-12~bpo8+1)
xserver-xorg-video-intel (2:2.21.15-2+b2) to 2:2.99.917+git20161206-1~bpo8+1
libdrm-intel1 (2.4.58-2) to 2.4.74-1~bpo8+1
libva-drm1 (1.4.1-1) to 1.7.3-2~bpo8+1
libva-x11-1 (1.4.1-1) to 1.7.3-2~bpo8+1
libva1 (1.4.1-1) to 1.7.3-2~bpo8+1
libvdpau1 (0.8-3+deb8u2) to 1.1.1-1~bpo8+1
libvdpau-va-gl1 (0.3.4-2)


Code: Select all
$ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card: Intel Device 22b1
           Display Server: X.Org 1.16.4 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
           Resolution: 1366x768@60.00hz
           GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Cherryview
           GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 10.3.2


However, I can't speak for your specific computer ...

Yes, xserver-xorg-video-intel:amd64 2:2.99.917+git20161206-1


Fortunately, I managed to turn on intel video driver, by installing packages listeb by MikeEcho, except the first package

Code: Select all
libffi-dev (3.1-2+b2)
libjsoncpp0 (0.6.0~rc2-3.1)
libllvm3.8 (1:3.8.1-12~bpo8+1)
llvm-3.8 (1:3.8.1-12~bpo8+1)
llvm-3.8-dev (1:3.8.1-12~bpo8+1)
llvm-3.8-runtime (1:3.8.1-12~bpo8+1)
xserver-xorg-video-intel (2:2.21.15-2+b2) to 2:2.99.917+git20161206-1~bpo8+1
libdrm-intel1 (2.4.58-2) to 2.4.74-1~bpo8+1
libva-drm1 (1.4.1-1) to 1.7.3-2~bpo8+1
libva-x11-1 (1.4.1-1) to 1.7.3-2~bpo8+1
libva1 (1.4.1-1) to 1.7.3-2~bpo8+1
libvdpau1 (0.8-3+deb8u2) to 1.1.1-1~bpo8+1
libvdpau-va-gl1 (0.3.4-2)


Thas is this list of packages mentioned above help me to run proper video driver on my dell laptop with Skylake and intel hd video (HD 520).

Now my inxi -G is
Code: Select all
Graphics:  Card: Intel Device 1916
           Display Server: X.Org 1.19.3 driver: intel
           Resolution: 1920x1080@60.05hz
           GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 520 (Skylake GT2)
           GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 13.0.6

I have tried modifying modesetting, some Xorg configs, but didn't get any good result, but now installing list of packages made all done.

Thanks for all.

There a post in the HOWTO section here that shows how to use jessie-backports to get those type of graphics working--no need to resort to the testing repos.

I suppose a similar process is now necessary on Stretch to support the new AMD Ryzen processors. :?
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.0.6, Pale Moon 27.3.0, Liquorix kernel 4.11-9, mpv 0.25.0, Kodi 17.3, Ksnip 1.3.1, Mesa 13.0.6

If you mean how HOWTO: Get Debian 8 Jessie working on newer Intel machines, that it did not help me to solve the problem with graphics, but helped me to solve problem with hibernate/suspend, as menitioned here http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=131293&p=635323. After that I had to use other methods to make Intel integrated video work.
