dmesg after hibernate (22.54 KB, text/plain)

Description Carlo Raudino 2008-06-13 15:04:52 UTC
Description of problem: Hibernation doesn't work in eeePC. After blinking the
cursor for a minute (I think is very slow to write to the SD in card reader) it
shuts down...ok.
But booting eeepc, it seems to ignore the resume from hibernation..... no
errors, nothing...just a normal boot.... 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora 9 fully updated

Actual results:
No way or workaround to make hibernate work

Expected results:
Hibernating is time saving and energy saving, so it would be nice to have it

Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2008-06-14 00:42:11 UTC
Could you attach the log from the kernel when it boots and fails to resume? The
output of dmesg should have some information about why it discounts the
hibernation data in the swap.

Also, could you attach the output of "fdisk -l", so that we can check whether
there's enough swap taken aside for the hibernation data?

Here is attached the dmesg trying to hibernate with the last rawhide kernel
(same problem of stable kernel...)

fdisk -l  OUTPUT:

Comment 4 Till Maas 2008-06-16 21:58:14 UTC
When you boot without the graphical screen you should see some information about
the swap partition the kernel tries to access for resume, can you please take a
look for this? You should not need to hibernate to see the message.

Comment 5 Till Maas 2008-07-31 20:30:04 UTC
Please provide the information I requested in comment 4.
