Comment 1 Joachim Frieben 2009-04-01 11:57:57 EDT
Suspend fails even for the latest Koji updates and despite removing 90chvt from /usr/lib64/pm-utils/sleep.d.
- kernel-
- xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.12.1-2.fc11.x86_64
Instead of resuming, the system starts over. Correct behaviour can only be restored by adding "nomodeset" to the kernel boot line.
Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2009-04-01 12:00:57 EDT
jerry: can you try as joachim did, disable modesetting ('nomodeset' kernel parameter) and see if it works that way?

Attention: unless 90chvt is in place, one is facing a garbled text console after resume but in this case, switching VTs allows to get back X with the g-s-s unlock dialog.

On ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV250 [Mobility FireGL 9000] [1002:4c66] (rev 02) (, and booting "nomodeset", I am able to successfully suspend and also successfully resume.

Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 08:55:15 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Comment 11 Jerome Glisse 2009-10-13 11:34:34 EDT
Can you try if it works with Fedora 12 alpha live cd ?
Comment 12 Adam Williamson 2009-10-13 16:15:17 EDT
actually, it may be even better to test the latest fedora 12 nightly live CD:

this is more or less what f12 beta will be.

jerome, if you want someone to test something against latest rawhide, you can always direct them to that directory; it contains automatically-built nightly live images from latest Rawhide, so people can test stuff without needing a Rawhide install.

Comment 13 Joachim Frieben 2009-10-13 16:57:42 EDT
For current "rawhide", suspend works nicely now with active KMS for an "ATI Technologies Inc Radeon X800 SE (R430) (PCIE) rev 0".

Regarding the case without KMS, only a mouse pointer is visible in front of a black background after resume. Virtual consoles are simply black.

jerry: how's things for you with Rawhide?

suspend works, but the resume does not. The desktop comes back, but does not respond - mouse movement is visble, but clicks do nothing. C-A-F2 works so I can login to tty, reboot, etc.

Comment 16 Matěj Cepl 2009-11-05 12:12:42 EST
Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages (at least F12Beta, but even better if the very latest versions).

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Comment 17 Jerry Amundson 2009-11-05 15:25:50 EST

Xorg.log after bootup


I've recently tested the newest nightly desktop build and I have to report, that the suspend works. Sort of. After suspending and resuming the system the display comes back on both the laptop panel and an external LCD. However, the screen is 'frozen' - you can move the cursor but you cannot click on anything. I'm attaching my Xorg.log

Best regards,
Maciej Grela

Comment 22 Adam Williamson 2009-11-05 19:57:51 EST
Can you please test with kernel -122?

it has a fix for radeon suspend issues. If you can't test on an installed f12, it should be in tomorrow's Rawhide (and hence tomorrow's nightly when that gets done).

This bug is more than likely a duplicate of 531825. Will use 531825 as a placeholder.
