Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247906
kernel 2.6.22-8.fc8 - libata gets into a way of hibernation
Last modified: 2008-04-04 12:53:50 EDT
Description of problem:
After /usr/sbin/pm-hibernate a number of messages scrolled
from a screen and ended with:
"ata4: failed to recover some devices, retrying in 5 seconds"
but nothing was ever retried and eventually a power switch was
the only way to recover.
Interestingly enough all what was to required to resume was
already written on a disk and a machine came without noticing
that STD was never completed.
A picture of a frozen screen with libata messages is attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This happened only once although I did not try too many times.
I have to run /usr/sbin/pm-hibernate explicitely as all desktop
elements related to suspend/hybernate vanished from rawhide
soon after F7 release and so far they are not coming back.

It looks like that I know how to make that repeatable.
wake it up and follow with
appears to cause an error like the reported one every time.
I tried now with 2.6.23-0.15.rc0.git2.fc8 (this is on a package;
it prefers to call itself 2.6.22-0.15.rc0.git2.fc8).
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.
I cannot reproduce that now with a hardware I have on hands.
