Package: login
Version: 1:4.4-4.1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
Updating kernal from 4.9.0-6 to 4.9.0-7 using apt-get dist-upgrade

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
My once per month apt-get dist-upgrade

   * What was the outcome of this action?

When I started the OS with the new kernal. I was able to login, but then the screen went blank indefinitely. I tried shutting down and updating again. I also submitted a bug report to the kernal team, but it wasn't the right package. 
   * What outcome did you expect instead?

The new kernal version to let me log in and use the desktop.
