Acer Travelmate 290 & Standby/Suspend to disk ?
my name is Sebastian and I am new to this list. Since yesterday I am the proud
owner of a Acer Travelmate 291LCi-M10. I installed Debian on it, and although
I had informed myself prior at tuxmobile.org, I was surprised that nearly
everything worked right out of the box.
I had to install several "external" modules by myself, namely ndiswrapper (for
Intel 2100 W-Lan) and sl-modem (for build in software modem).
, but even that worked without any problems.
The only things that didn´ t work out of the box are the accelerated ati
drivers for the Ati Mobility 9600 M10 (RV350) and the
standby/suspend/hibernate modes. And thats why I´m writing in here now.
I tried most drivers on the web, namely the ati/radeon drivers shipped with
the debian XFree86 4.3.0 packages, the ones from the ATI Homepage (fglx or
s.th. like that) and the DRI development drivers. Each of them worked, but
none of them made the 3d acceleration work. (I did this on several desktop PCs
alredy, so I know the procedure.) Tuxracer and glxgears run at the same fps.
But therefore (if using non-std. drivers) the tv-out and crt-out didn´ t work
anymore, or the test mode console stopped working.
And the suspend states don´t work although, even the normal ones (S1) don´ t
do. The laptop enters sleep mode, but isn´ t able to resume. It stops after
the framebuffer message in the reactivation process and hangs. hibernation
even didn´ t start.
Btw, did I mention I tried both kernels 2.6 and 2.4 ? Well, since 2.6 works
better with anything else, I will stick to that.
Well, I hope anyone reads this and can help me. Any help or comment is very
With best regards,
