hello, I pasted my Xorg log at https://paste.debian.net/938243

[ 65.388] Build Operating System: Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 x86_64 Debian
6th line down, is the new debian9rc installer same as Debian 8.8?
I assume jessie was installed and then it was upgraded to stretch, right?
So some of the X and dm configuration files were based on Jessie and were just revised based on those settings.
That's what I think.  I may be very wrong as my knowledge is incomplete.

Fungi: this is an Asus X441SA laptop, is this also mix and match laptop?

I don't know, I've never had one.  I know that lenovo dell hp stuff are well tested and ironed out in all systems, maybe some sony toshiba etc.  I know nothing of asus, I've used some of their mb building and repairing stuff.

I did a clean install from Debian installer of Stretch, nothing is left
from previous Jessie.
swithching *dm is still a valid idea in this case?
thanks a lot,

It was a suggestion of an easy and safe thing to do.  It takes 5-10' round trip, or 2 reboots.
If I remember right you have lxde.  Between that and Xofc it is the safest bet to figure out what may be wrong, the rest of the desktops I believe are much more demanding and have more to go wrong with.

The official stretch installer will not be out till it becomes stable.  There is a beta version of it out but I've never used it.  I doubt it would say 3.16 on it though.  You can't get to GT from a v6 mustang that easy :)
