Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 249772
Unable to suspend owing to wireless driver
Last modified: 2008-01-23 10:44:50 EST
Description of problem:
This may be more of a kernel problem - not sure. In any case, sometimes in
recent attempts to suspend to RAM the laptop gets stuck, showing messages like this:
unregister_netdevice: waiting for wlan0 to become free. Usage count = 1
This happens with kernel 184.108.40.206-27.fc7 and with the -33 kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend to RAM
Suspend process does not complete
Suspend process should be completed

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 you are, please could
you attach an lspci -vvxxx output as well as dmesg output to this bug.
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.
This machine is running rawhide now. Suspend not working as of today, but I'll
report that separately.
Please could you post back the output from:
# lspci -vvxxx
You may wish to also try rmmod'ing the wireless module in question and see
whether your machine is able to suspend successfully then.
Whats the latest on this? You might want to have a look at:
which may be of some help...
It's working with F8 so I'm closing the bug.
