I just compiled Kernel 2.6.9 (from Debian source packages) with the additional
patches for SoftwareSuspend2
and Centrino WLAN
Both patches applied fine and compiled without any problems. I'm currently
unable to test the wireless because there is no hotspot around.
I also used the latest version of the hibernate scripts
and used the package source from
deb-src http://cp.yi.org/apt/hibernate /
to build Debian packages for the latest version. BTW, is there any reason
that this is not moved to an official Debian package?
Calling /usr/bin/hibernate explicitely works fine with the slight and
ignorable exception that the X screen is sometimes scrambled and I just have
to press a key / move the mouse to get it right - kind of a strange screen
Unfortunately I'm not able to call hibernate via the power button. I'm using
the latest acpid which has a script /etc/acpi/events/powerbtn which says:
For debugging issues I used
echo "`date`: Power-Button pressed" >> /var/log/lid.log
in my /etc/acpi/powerbtn.sh script before calling
but not even this log entry is written and thus I assume that the event
was renamed. I tried to browse the kernel source but did not found
something helpful. The lid button works fine with
and a similar debugging line.
Any hint what might went wrong here?
