25 I had it working a long time ago, but the last time I tried it I ended up
26 with a bit of a problem:
28 I don't want a swap-partition on the SSD in my netbook. So I want it to
29 use the SD-card that's permanently plugged in. Problem is, it's connected
30 via an internal USB-port and USB is killed before the writing-proces for
31 the suspend-to-disk starts.
33 Anyone know a solution short of rewriting the kernel? ;)
