Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-09-17 15:26:29 EDT
Description of problem:
The above URL identifies a patch submission that has been merged in, and is
present in Fedora's hal-info. It is buggy:

- the submitter uses his system.hardware.product string, 766314G, which 
  does not uniquely identify the T61 (mine is 7658CTO)
- furthermore, the patch incorrectly uses 'system.hardware.version' rather than

Please find attached a patch that changes the Lenovo quirk file so that it keys
in on system.hardware.product="Thinkpad T61" instead.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend
2. Resume
Actual results:
Backlight not re-enabled

Expected results:
Backlight re-enabled

Note that with the current Rawhide kernel, the modification allows the laptop to
suspend, but now it won't resume -- might be a kernel problem. Without s3_mode
the laptop will wake up immediately (and backlight is off); with s3_bios the
laptop will wake up immediately and the backlight is reenabled.
Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2007-10-09 11:08:01 EDT
This is wrong; IIRC a Thinkpad T61 can come with different video cards and then
you need different quirks. Btw, in the future please send patches to the hal
list instead of RH Bugzilla. Thanks!
Comment 4 Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-10-10 12:59:20 EDT
I did list the upstream bug entry as well, but sorry for the duplication.

Good point that T61 comes with different video cards, but the entry I referred
to is still wrong: instead of s.h.v it should have said s.h.p (version is just
"Thinkpad T61", it's the product key that has the different product numbers)
