anaconda doesn't detected hibernated machine
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
with the pm-hibernate support in FC5, I never switch off my laptop, I just
hibernate it. Big mistake when upgrading Fedora: the CDs don't detect the
hibernation. They mount disks, and then decide that the swap space sig is
broken. After a reboot the dehibernated system gets completely confused, because
the FS was mounted r/w by anaconda.
Hrm, we should probably do something about this for FC6. Our current upgrade
finding is "look for filesystems we can mount, read /etc/fstab".
I guess we should add a "find all swaps, see if they're swsusp, warn really
loud" and then what we currently do
Fixed in rawhide. If a swap partition has a software suspend signature, a
dialog pops up explaining the situation. You can skip the partition and the
installer won't do anything with it, you can format it as swap and continue, or
you can reboot.
