Description Matthias Clasen 2006-11-22 23:09:48 UTC
For some reason, the beta2 kernel lost /sys/power/disk on this laptop. 
That is sad. But it shouldn't break suspend. Removing the line

[ -f /sys/power/disk ] || exit 1

from /usr/sbin/pm-suspend makes suspend work again.

Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2006-11-27 10:08:47 UTC
What kind of installation did you make? I've seen this problem with some of the
Zen installations/kernels i've done, and this seems to be intentional that on
Zen kernels some of the /sys/power/ things are missing.

Other than that i agree, for a suspend to ram /sys/power/disk shouldn't be required.

Read ya, Phil

This was the PAE kernel, not xen.
