Re: Suspend to disk partition on ThinkPad T20

Thanks everyone.

I'll got my new kernel compiled with framebuffer support. Yes, I have
played with vga=ask parameter - T20 just doens't like those old EGA
modes ...
I've not tried the TextSVGA package, it didn't look promising since the
Savage IX card has been supported for about 5 months ( and only works 8
bpp with KDE 2.1 from sid ).

As for the hibernation partition, I'll investigate it further following
Russel's suggestion to look at BIOS NVRAM. So far I have played with
lphdisk, modified it to support any primary partition, but BIOS remained
completely oblivious to its existence. I'm wondering how much Phoenix
remained in T20 BIOS, IBM may have limited its original functionality.
E.g Dell provides it's own utility to handle the hibernation partition
for Latitude notebooks, supporting multiple data chunks together( like
partition + file ), the partition type is not A0H, but 84H. 

Thanks again
