Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186976
Suspending results in deleted kernel modules and non-responding laptop
Last modified: 2008-05-06 11:40:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When suspending my computer the computer refuses to wake and when it finally is
possible to turn it on, all my kernel modules are deleted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel version: 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5
Always. May be dependent on hardware or other components (see below).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 5 and reboot
2. Suspend the computer.
3. Wait till the computer will turn on again - all kernel modules should be
deleted, and only drivers that are built in, should work.
No respons from the computer, when suspended. Ones the computer does turn on
again, the kernel modules of the running kernel are gone.
The computer should turn on when asked to, and no kernel modules should be missing.
My computer is a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 7300, with a Celeron-M 1.4 GHz CPU, VIA
PN800 Northbridge + VIA 8132 Southbridge (name is incomplete, but I can't
remember it of the top of my head, and I'm not sitting with the computer right now).
When I did a forced installation of the kernel, all the modules re-appeared (as
expected), so I am not too worried about replicating it if needed.
Needed logs, will be uploaded on demand.
No updates have been installed on my computer. This is a clean install of Fedora
The problem persist with the 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 kernel.
The malnamed southbridge is named VT8237. Also kudzu reports my northbridge to
be a PM880 chip, and not a PN800 as indicated by the BIOS.
That clearly sounds like a kernel bug though, as pm-utils itself never removes
Read ya, Phil
