Re: iBook display still on while asleep



Earlier, I posted:
I've submitted a bug to the debian system (Bug#308495) regarding this
situation. The basic problem is as the subject line says: the display is left on after the machine to put to sleep. It displays what looks
to be the console messages in single user mode display. pmud worked
just fine with woody installed (debian 3.0) but is broken for sarge.

Here are the particulars for my machine.

,----[ uname -a ]
| Linux lilmac 2.6.8-powerpc #1 Sun Mar 20 14:09:41 CET 2005 ppc GNU/Linux

With crucial help from Ben Herrenschmidt, the problem has been associated with the 2.6.8 kernel. We substituted a newer kernel (2.6.12-rc4) and it now works okay. Note: the "aty128fb" or "radeonfb" video drivers for the kernel must be invoked during kernel boot for the old iBooks.
