Re: suspend to disk on compaq 1200

Hi all,

	I was wrong... with APM it works, very well indeed.. But with APM I lost 
some things, like the /proc/acpi. I would try swpsusp but it has been said 
that it is very buggy, and doesnt like XFS (my filesystem...).
	I would suggest that you try again. I only had to compile a kernel with APM 
support, apt-get install apmd, apt-get install lphdisk, create a suspend 
partition and it works. Now it's time to try with ACPI :-)
