Subject: [gentoo-user] Hibernate / Suspend Problems on a Desktop
Date: Wed, 21 May 2008 02:14:48
1 Hello,
3 I just got a new Dell XPS 420 system. It has an Intel core 2 duo quad
4 cpu. I wish to hibernate it to ram, though I'd be happy with any other
5 form of hibernate/suspend-like behavior at this point.
7 I'm using vanilla kernel I have all the various
8 hibernate/suspend etc options turned on. I installed hibernate-script,
9 installed vbetool and configured the .conf files for hibernate-script to
10 use it.
12 Testing from console, no frame buffer, any of the actions (hibernate,
13 hibernate-ram) bring the system down just fine, but when I power the
14 system back up fully, I have no video signal. The system is fine
15 otherwise, as I can blind-type "reboot" or "halt" and the system does so.
17 I remember fighting with this same issue on my IBM thinkpad laptop. I
18 have compared configurations and don't really see any glaring
19 differences. Other than the laptop having an ATI card, and this desktop
20 having an Nvidia GeForce 9600.
22 The laptop has a single-core Intel CPU, but this desktop has a quad-core
23 Intel CPU. There is a specific option in the kernel to enable
24 hibernate/suspend etc for SMP/multicore systems, and I have enabled that.
26 At this point I am at a loss, trying over and over again to get this
27 working. Any tips would be much appreciated.
