Description kgb 1999-07-30 00:17:31 UTC
After installing Errata to Rehat 6.0 apmd-3.0beta5-8
experienced resume failures - i.e. if the system was
left suspended for a long time the system would freeze
on resume and had to be power cycled. Eeek!

Switching back to apmd-3.0beta5-7 from the CD seems
to have fixed the problem.

PS system was a Gateway 9100 XL notebook

More information:

The problem is NOT fixed by changing back the apmd.

Here is a better description of the problem:

If one suspends/resumes then at first there appears to be now
problem. However if one stays in the virtual console (e.g. F1)
for 1-2 minutes eventually something odd happens that locks out the
keyboard completely. If one switches back to X11 before this happens
the problem never manifests.

One can recover if one is able to telnet into the machine from
elsewhere. Simply saying 'chvt 7' in the telnet window works.

So what can happen after a resume to lock out the keyboad?

Comment 3 kgb 1999-09-02 23:58:59 UTC
Some more information:

I captured /proc/* and process listing by logging in from a networked
terminal when I experienced this problem today. I then recovered OK
by doing 'chvt 7' as root. Obviously this fix only works if one is
connected to the network!



for my process snapshow.

Try the apmd package from Raw Hide (3.0beta9-4), enabling the CHVT

Comment 5 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 1999-12-09 10:54:59 UTC
As I didn't get any new feedback, I'm assuming the new package fixed it.

Comment 6 kgb 1999-12-09 11:42:59 UTC
Sorry, just got round to testing it.

Couldn't find 3.0beta9-4 but found and tried 3.0beta9-6.

This does indeed fix the problem.
