Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 268641
Suspend fails to resume, results in unbootable machine
Last modified: 2007-12-30 12:06:27 EST
Description of problem:
On Dell Inspiron 9300
Suspended, then opened lid to resume - got power/disk hardware lamp indications
but black screen and non-responsive to keyboard.
Cycled power off then on. Now boot process repeatably fails with messages:
Unable to access resume device (/dev/sda5)
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory
Then nothing. Machine is apparently unbootable short of using a rescue disk.
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.
Sorry, I no longer have access to that laptop to test on, so I can't say whether
this is still an issue.
In that case, I'm going to close this as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Feel free to reopen
if the problem recurs.
