1 Mike,
3 What BIOS version are you running? Mine is A02. I have just installed the
4 2.6.16-r4 kernel on mine (with NVidia Quadro FX Go1400, 1920x1200) and even
5 though the "suspend2ui_text -t" goes through the paces of writing to swap,
6 (it shows on the screen the cute little text "thermometer" about writing
7 caches) it doesn't do it ANYTHING. All I get is "Ack! SIG 2" when I hit
8 Ctrl-C after it sits for a spell.
10 When I boot it gives me the "Big Fat Warning". I complains that failed to
11 translate /dev/sda1 into a device id. I don't know where I ought to be
12 putting a device id. My lilo.conf has this:
14 image=/boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.16-suspend2-r4
15 append="real_root=/dev/sda13 resume2=swap:/dev/sda1"
17 I get the same results with the "hibernate" script, the only difference
18 there is that I don't get the lilo kernel choice, just a reboot into the old
19 kernel.
21 My hibernate.conf has
22 UseSuspend2 yes
23 SuspendDevice swap:/dev/sda1
25 And I've never gotten it to suspend to RAM.
