Description Mitsu Hadeishi 2003-06-07 15:15:09 EDT
Description of problem:

After resuming (on a Dell Inspiron 8200) RH9 will fail to communicate with an
IRDA device, requiring a restart of the irda service (via "service irda restart").

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

How reproducible:

Easily reproducible

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot RH9 with irda service enabled
2. Place irda device (such as GPRS phone) in communication with irda port on laptop
3. Check communication with irdadump
4. Suspend laptop
5. Resume laptop
6. Check communication with irdadump
Actual results:

After resume, irdadump fails to recognize external irda device, even though
irattach is still running

Expected results:

Irda device should be there

Additional info:

Workaround involves restarting irda service

Please add irda to the RESTORESERVICES line in /etc/sysconfig/apmd. 
Does this solve your problems ? 
Comment 2 Mitsu Hadeishi 2003-07-04 12:47:46 EDT
Yes, that works.  I would guess that I would recommend that irda be added to
Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2003-07-16 09:44:52 EDT
I'll have to check if adding irda to the apmd config file will break other things

Nope doesn't work for me. I set changed my /etc/sysconfig/apmd line to: 

RESTORESERVICES="named amd irda"

I also tried irdad too. Neither worked I suspend/resume and irda
doesn't work anymore. I try to restart "/etc/init.d/irda restart" no
good, rebooting seems to be only solution. Again wasn't a problem with
FC1 or RH9 for me.

I also tried to unload the kernel modules (irda and dependants) and
reload but that doesn't solve the problem either.
