Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1025003
vbetool required by /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/99video but not installed as dependence of pm-utils
Last modified: 2016-07-28 15:13:10 EDT
Description of problem:
pm-suspend executes the scripts located in /usr/lib64/sleep.d/. One of them shutdowns the screen by using vbetool, but it's missing, so when the computer is suspended, an error appears in /var/log/pm-suspend.log about that utility missing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install/upgrade pm-utils and check about the vbetool installation (rpm -qa | grep -i vbetool)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install pm-utils
2. Check for vbetool package installed
vbetool is missing
vbetool is installed
Vbetool was dropped, video resume should be supported by KMS. Is the only problem the error message in the log? In such case we could drop the 99video plugin.
I don't know about implications of removing 99video plugin, but at least a less worrying message log would be fine.

OK, this is the most safe. Currently the plugin is bypassed thus it is not needed, but there may be users having installed vbetool from other sources.
