Default Ubuntu 16.04.2 (kernerl 4.8) crash when I attach displaylink device

I followed the instruction when installing the Ubuntu driver but the system crashes when I attach the displaylink device. I get a message that says:

The system is running in low-graphics mode
Your screen, graphics card and input device settings could not be detected correctly . You will need to configure these yourself.

and then when I press OK (mouse has stopped working), another window appears with some options, but irrespective of choice of option, the system eventually crashes.

Help would be greatly appreciated. I am on a Lenovo Y50-70 laptop.

Thanks

Mats

Bump!

Maybe someone from DisplayLink would care to comment? Or simply acknowledge the existence of this bug?

I have the same issue, it was working fine until I upgrade kernel from 4.4 to 4.8.

Default Same here

I have the same crash. I have a Dell XPS 15 and the monitor I am attaching is a Dell P1914S. I've installed the Displaylink drivers (plus dkms) and pretty soon after I attach the monitor either using DisplayPort or DVI cables Ubuntu crashes. There is a vga port on the monitor and I will try that but I don't have the right converters at the moment.

Which driver for the built-in graphics cards do you use? Logs would tell us more about your systems.

Cheers,
Michal

Which driver for the built-in graphics cards do you use? Can you attach logs? Note that the driver does not officially support closed-source NVIDIA/AMD drivers, although there are some success stories where people made it work.

Cheers,
Michal

Happy to supply logs if you let me know which logs. I'm using whatever drivers ubuntu set up. I've done nothing special.

Default I have a similar problem: system always hard-crashes

Once I connect the displayport cable to the device, system crashes.

Ubuntu 16.04.2
Kernel 4.8.0-52-generic

Have a GeForce GTX 660M using Nouveu display driver.
Output of support tool attached.
