Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80291
Using apm freezes the system
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:49:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Suspending Linux with "apm -s" or "apm -S" freezes the system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in via GNOME
2. Enter apm -s or apm -S from a terminal window
3. The system suspends itself
4. When you try to wake the system up, GNOME partially returns with no I/O.
After several minutes you can get to a virtual console but still cann't use the
HP Pavilion 763n (2.53 GHz, 512 MB)
Please retest the phoebe update.
Also, is this unique to the original phoebe kernel, or have you seen
this using other kernels?
I hadn't encountered the problem in previous kernel versions. However, this
problem has apparently disappeared with beta #4 (Phoebe #2).
