I have made a fresh install of Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.2 on my Dell XPS 15 9560. The fresh install comes with Kernel version 4.8.0-53. I then updated all packages proposed by update manager, which included the new Kernel version 4.10.0-33. Now, I have the following situation.
Boot with Kernel 4.8.0-53 by choosing it in Grub. Once booted, shutdown or reboot, this works perfectly.
Boot with Kernel 4.10.0-33 by choosing it in Grub. Once booted, shutdown or reboot, this does not work, system is stuck with:
Code: Select all
BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 23s!
I did not change anything else in the system upon installation, I did not change 3rd party drivers for Nvidia Graphics Card for example. I know that, because I run into this issue after a first installation, then I thought I must have changed something somewhere, then started all over again with a fresh install and only updated all packages.
This is obviously an issue of the Kernel. Does someone know if this is a known issue or could someone point me to the right place where I could report this issue? Any other help would be appreciated as well.
Thank you, regards
