Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 235085
Regressions after last update on Thinkpad x60s
Last modified: 2008-06-16 21:17:19 EDT
Description of problem:
After update from
two issues has been discovered on my laptop.
The first one is regression blanking in X server when click Fn+BrightDown
(also more information is placed in bug #224170).
The second is unfunctionality of Fn+Suspend(to ram).
When I click the Fn+Suspend the laptop is shutting down and switch on the
sleep led in flashing mode (on/off changes with ~2Hz frequency). No possible
to back instead of full power off and reboot again. With 2.6.19 the sleep led
is on without flash.
Reboot with 2.6.19 kernel fix situation.
Possible related to bug #234762
See bug #243759 for work-arounds for the suspend problem.
Thanks. I'll try it when do next boot.
(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state)
I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt
to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer
Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.
Thanks for using Fedora!
I can't check it on F-8, but FC-7 shows pm-suspend is worked. However, key
shortcuts still doesn't work: not suspend nor hibernate.
Andy, have you installed the tpb package as this may help you here...
When I try to push Fn+F12 (suspend to disk) after I've installed the tbp
package I've got the following message:
Jan 20 22:25:37 localhost kernel: hald-addon-acpi: segfault at 00000ffc
eip 00ba83ec esp bfb51e18 error 4
P.S. F-7 with last updates after clean boot.
Sorry to hear it. This helps on my t42 but clearly not in your case. In fact, a
conversation on IRC indicates that tpb may soon be deprecated. Sorry to have led
you down the wrong path here.
Are you now testing on Fedora 7 or 8? If you can fire up the latter from a live
cd this might help narrow things down...
Sorry, I have x60s w/o any removable devices (as you know the 12" x series
need dock station to have CD or floppy), but SD-flash or usb-flash.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
