Description John Reiser 2008-03-30 11:34:03 EDT
Description of problem: Console messages during boot say "Trying to resume from
<device>" but there is no comment when the attempt fails.  Fedora 8 says "No
suspend signature on swap, not resuming" to indicate cold boot (non-resume.)

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

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cold boot via grub from usual ext3 partition.
Actual results: VGA Console messages:
Trying to resume from /sys/block/sda//sda5    ## 1st swap partition
   ## no indication of failure

Expected results:
Trying to resume from /sys/block/sda//sda5    ## 1st swap partition
No suspend signature on swap, not resuming.   ## indication of no resume

Additional info: kernel-2.6.25-0.172.rc7.git4.fc9.x86_64
but the problem occurs with all other f9-Beta kernels, too.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-30 12:38:38 EDT
Can you unpack the initrd (zcat /boot/initrd* |cpio -id) and grab the /init
script out and attach it here?

/init from initrd-2.6.25-0.172.rc7.git4.fc9.x86_64.img

zcat /boot/initrd-2.6.25-0.172.rc7.git4.fc9.x86_64.img | cpio -id
## then "./init"

initrd-2.6.25-0.121.rc5.git4.fc9.img was much the same:

Comment 4 Alex Lancaster 2008-04-03 07:19:02 EDT
I can duplicate this issue, although I get the error on a command like:

resume /sys/block/dm-3

If I extract the init script from a kernel build with an earlier version of
mkinitrd which didn't have this problem, I see something like:

resume /dev/mapper/Volume00-swap

which does resume correctly which seems to suggest that this seems to be the
same or similar issue as bug #438951 (should that bug be marked as dupe of this
Comment 5 Alex Lancaster 2008-04-03 20:29:24 EDT
Bumping severity a bit, this is a major regression IMHO.
Comment 6 petrosyan 2008-04-03 20:58:56 EDT
this looks like a duplicate of bug #438583
