[Bug 1548581] Re: using wacom tablet crashes the whole system in 16.04
It's issue : I have exactly Wacom One S.
So, in this case the patch must arrive at some point in the kernel, right? Then I wait, until something happens. I have a backup tablet (from Genius), but it doesn't have the same precision. Anyways, thanks for the update!

using wacom tablet crashes the whole system in 16.04
Status in linux-firmware package in Ubuntu:
Just tried the daily build and - as I expected, because I tried many
times - if I try to use my Wacom tablet, the whole system freezes.
I'm not sure what it is, maybe it gets a kernel panic or it's because
X.org, but I can't even restart the session, just if I turn off my
laptop by pressing the power button for seconds, because after trying
to use the graphics tablet, even the mouse and keyboard are frozen. I
reproduced this many times and I got the same results every single
time. But this doesn't even need to be in a drawing software. If I
move the pen over the tablet the whole system crashes.
Of course, if I pull it out and after restart I use Ubuntu without it,
then everything is normal, but in my opinion this is a heavily serious
issue, considering that we are talking about an LTS release, which has
to mean rock-solid stability over non-LTS distros. Now I'm in Linux
Mint, because this happens since 15.10 and Mint is the only Linux
distribution which has full support for my graphics and art project
workflow. Whatever they do, it just works, but Ubuntu is seriously
unstable these days.
Here are my outputs:
