VIA K8N800: no wake up after suspend (+ bug during inst. of Fedora7)
Last modified: 2014-10-20 16:06:25 EDT
Benq Joybook R23 with VIA Unichrome IGP K8N800-Chipset (64 MB shared) and 1024 x
768 standard laptop-monitor.
Description of problem:
Display fails to re-initialise after waking up from suspend mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wait till Notebook goes into suspend-mode
2. press any key -> HDD-activity, but no display.
screen stays black
return to screen saver or desktop
Pressing [Fn]+[F11] (which switches from external VGA-port to laptop display and
back) doesn't help. This workaround helped whilst installation of Fedora:
Monitor wasn't auto-detected. A standard CRT-monitor with resolution
capabilities of 640 x 480 and 800 x 600 @ millions of colours was initially
installed, leaving the screen black at first start-up of freshly installed
Fedora. Luckily, I pressed [Fn]+[F11] and was able to read the error message of
X11-server. Manual configuration to standard LCD display @ 1024 x 786 @
thousands of colours got things working; millions of colours @ 1024 x 768 didn't
work (is this worth a separate bug-report?).
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.

I'll try and boot without an X.org.conf file present now.
Next attachment will be the /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt.
I will rename the file to Xorg.0.log.autoconf to distinguish it from the other
file I uploaded before with the same name.
booting without an xorg.conf leads to the same result described in my initial
bug report under 'additional info'. Only this time with the advanced problem
that I can't access the manual configuration of the X server even after
repeatedly pressing [Fn]+[F11]. Eventually I get the message 'trying to restart
X server' displayed on the screen. Pressing [ENTER] naturally leads to a blank
screen again because no manual alterations were made and there is still no
xorg.conf present. Vicious circle.
I am attaching Xorg.0.log renamed to Xorg.0.log.autoconf from this attempt.

Mass migration: via -> openchrome.
Could you please try to use xorg-x11-drv-openchrome which is the replacement for
the ancient and unmaintained xorg-x11-drv-via ? It is available for both F7 and F8.
My K400 is also not coming back properly from suspend unless I use 'pm-suspend
--quirk-s3-bios'. Could you please give this workaround a test ?
Hi Xavier, hi Adam,
thanks for your replies. They motivated me to give Linux/Fedora a new try.
Here the summary of my proceedings/findings:
- Fresh installation of Fedora 8 (with the same problems as encountered with
Fedora 7, see over),
- manual change of xorg.conf to use standard vesa-driver and correct monitor,
-> glxgears = approx. 300 fps,
- installation of xorg-x11-drv-openchrome-0.2.900-7.fc8.x86_64,
-> glxgears = approx. 900 fps, 3D-acceleration seems to be working! :)
- Still black screen after wake up from suspend.
-> I'll try Xavier's workaround and report back a.s.a.p.

OK, forget my mail, I figured it out: [root@noname ~]# pm-suspend --quirk-s3-bios
It also works for me.
Thanks for testing. The need for this quirk for this laptop should be reported
to upstream hal.
I can assist with the patch creation if you need. Please contact me privately if
I move this bug to hal-info component.
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as
a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'.
If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to
(If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug
and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. 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 '8'.
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 8'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 8 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 to the applicable version. 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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 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.
