I posted a bug for my HP Compaq nx7300 laptop, but I would also like to ask you if you have any insights and helpful tips for me to try out.
The bug is here:
This laptop also runs OpenSuse 10.2 and to get suspend and resume working there
I needed to add a few options to s2ram config file. These are:
S2RAM_OPTS="-f -p -m"
-f, --force: force suspending, even on unknown machines.
-p, --vbe_post: VBE POST the graphics card after resume
-m, --vbe_mode: get VBE mode before suspend and set it after resume
Fedora 7 uses pm-suspend but has some similar options:
but using command:
pm-suspend --quirk-vbe-post --quirk-vbemode-restore
makes my laptop resume ok, only with screen off! - I can see hdd diode blinking
if I issue 'find /' command.
using 'pm-suspend --quirk-vbemode-restore' is the same, screen is dead but
laptop works - ie. hdd led blinks after typing 'find /'
quirk guide isn't very helpful:
because it insists on using "--quirk-s3-bios" or "--quirk-s3-mode" none of which
make my laptop not freeze. In my case for step no.15. the answer should be "You
might need to use --quirk-vbemode-restore"
any ideas on how to persue this further?
I got my laptop not to freeze on waking up but only in console mode (when I boot with "single" option in grub) - but still I get no picture on my laptop screen - under gnome anything I tried so far only freezes the laptop.
