Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245107
Reloading e1000 module causes hibernate to fail
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:29:50 EST
I'm using a Thinkpad X60.
The workaround for bug 236956 (failure to detect carrier) is to rmmod and
modprobe the e1000 driver. If I do this, the next time I try to suspend to disk
(aka "hibernate"), all network-related userspace programs (NetworkManager, etc)
go into an unkillable state, suspend fails because these processes can't be
frozen, and any further attempt to load or unload kernel modules hangs.
Will be happy to provide more info.
Can you get output from alt-sysrq-t when it hangs?
(or just do "echo "t" >/proc/sysrq-trigger)
I'm reviewing this bug 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 and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.
There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?
If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.
As indicated previously there has been no update on the progress of this bug
therefore I am closing it as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Please re-open if the issue
still occurs for you and I will try to assist in its resolution. Thank you for
taking the time to report the initial bug.
