Description of problem:

i dosn't work on fedora test2 with kernel 2.6.23-0.214.rc8.git2.fc8
(it didn't worked even with the previous kernel, if i get it right there
is a regression bug with kernel 2.6.23)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

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.
now i'm using a fedora 8 installed from dvd and
i just updated the kernel to the version 184.108.40.206-85.fc8
i still have this issue. the system never wake up from a pm-suspend
what i can see once i try to wakeup the pc is the yellow word:
(same version of kernel on another laptop works fine, that one is
a packard bell with a ATI chipset i suppose)
i'm available for any kind of test!
Can you provide a link to a Smolt profile and please try any applicable quirks
listed at http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/quirk/quirk-suspend-index.html
here the smolt link:
unfortunally it doen't works for me, if you need i can attache a
I discovered that pm-suspend works if i manually unload the b44 module.
I can suspend and resume the system if i do not have this module in memory.
It works from tty1 and from Xorg.
It works even if i create a file /etc/pm/config.d/unload_modules
now: should i close this bug?
many thanks for the suggestions.
I don't think that closing it is appropriate, but changing the subject sure is.
I'll do that.
I'll also reassign to network maintainer.
I'm thinking that this is actually a duplicate of bug 240964. I will close this
one dup to that, and if we find later that it's different this bug can be re-opened.
