Description Suzanne Hillman 2008-02-28 20:58:32 UTC
Description of problem:
quirks that worked to allow suspend to work no longer do. This is as of
upgrading my machine from 5.1+released updates to the Client-20080225.0 Beta
candidate build. The visible results are blinking caps lock on resume,
presumably due to kernel panic.

Additionally, the log file appears to show it relating to the wireless driver:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.18-83.el5
hal-0.5.8.1-33.el5
pm-utils-0.99.3-6.el5.18

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get an acer aspire 3002CLi, and suspend it with --quirk-vbe-post
--quirk-vbemode-restore
  
Actual results:
Kernel panic

Expected results:
Functional suspend like I used to have working.

Additional info:
I will check if using an older kernel allows this to work again.

This works fine if the only thing I change is to use the 2.6.18-53.1.6.el5
kernel. Regression. Probably not important enough to block Beta (because it is
so specific), but setting regression keyword.

Comment 3 Suzanne Hillman 2008-05-08 17:31:40 UTC
Seems to be working fine again on 2.6.18-92.el5
