F11: Suspend broken on HP nc6400 notebook. (Worked on F8.)
Last modified: 2010-06-28 09:00:45 EDT
Description of problem:
Suspend broken on HP nc6400 notebook
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have been using Fedora 8. Now I upgrade to Fedora 11
(clean install). Suspend worked very well on this same
hardware and Fedora 8. On Fedora 11, it just makes the
screen go blank... all lights still on, fan still humming,
and USB ports still powered-up. The only way to get back
is to do a hard-reboot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. System | Shut Down | Suspend
Hibernate seems to work OK in F11. I never used to use
this in F8, so I have no basis of comparison. Hibernate
takes longer, though, and does not seem like a drop-in
replacement for suspend.
Let me know whatever other sysinfo I need to provide.
re-assinging to a more appropriate componenet
News flash, w.r.t. reproducibility. Suspend/resume has worked
at least once. I did not change anything. I did hibernate
successfully, and the next time I did s/r, it worked. I
will keep you posted.
btw kernel info:
Linux foo 18.104.22.168-167.fc11.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed May 27 17:27:08 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Yeah, well sorry, but I have not been able to reproduce the bug.
It failed like 5 out of 5 times I tried, then I reported the bug,
then it succeeded always. That must be like Murphy's law of bug
reports or something. It seems unlikely that my successful
"hibernate" changed something that proceeded to make "suspend"
work, but that's the only thing I changed. Anyway... I hope this
does not jinx it but I thought I'd let you know I have not been
able to reproduce. I know it's early in the new release and you
must be busy.
Hi, it's me again. I am sorry to say that suspend is failing
again, pretty regularly.
Definitey, suspend always fails now.
No idea how to reproduce the successful
suspends that I got.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '11'.
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 11'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 11 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 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 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.
