Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 375521
Suspend to RAM/disk not responding
Last modified: 2009-01-09 00:09:06 EST
Description of problem: When I right-click on kpowersave and select "Suspend to
RAM" or "Suspend to disk", nothing happens. No errors are present in dmesg or /
How reproducible: 100%
Additional info: Install of the KDE live CD.
Is your box fully up-to-date? We released several 0-day updates, which resolved
a similar issue.
rpm -q kpowersave knetworkmanager
>>> rpm -q kpowersave knetworkmanager
My system is up to date, as 'yum check-update' yields nothing
Brand/model of your machine?
Sorry, Dell Inspiron e1405 notebook.
Intel Centrino system, 1GB RAM, 2 GB swap.
Video? You wouldn't happen to have nvidia video? :)
Nope, Intel 945gm. I don't think it's video related, though, as there's no HDD
activity when I click the buttons, which there should be if it's even trying to
by hand/as-root work? (That's essentially what kpowersave and
gnome-power-manager do under-the-hood to go into suspend).
Yes, pm-suspend suspends to RAM properly.
That's just crazy/wierd then. ??
Can you try to reproduce this with a recent kernel (2.6.24.x), kpowersave
(0.7.3) and possibly hal, update?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
