Hello all ! I'm running a Dell laptop (it's an Inspiron 510m) with a Debian GNU/Linux (Sarge, kernel 2.6.8-1). I'm trying (hard) to use some power management to make my laptop sleep when I think it's time to go to bed :-) The problem is : 1) I first applied the patches in the package quoted in the subject of this post 2) I did a make -menuconfig in the current kernel source directory, where I had a .config file that was used as default, so the only thing I changed in my config is that I enabled the support for the enable _suspend stuff. A 'grep SUSPEND /usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8/.config' now gives the following : # CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND is not set CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND2_CORE=y CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND2=y CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND2_WRITER=y CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND_SWAPWRITER=y CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND_LZF_COMPRESSION=y # CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND_GZIP_COMPRESSION is not set CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND_TEXT_MODE=y # CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND_RELAXED_PROC is not set CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND_DEFAULT_RESUME2="" # CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND_KEEP_IMAGE is not set # CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND_DEBUG is not set # CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND_CHECKSUMS is not set 3) Then when I use my new kernel (with the resume2=swap:/dev/hda6 correct option in my /boot/grub/menu.lst), I get a segfault by the /etc/rcS.d/S20module-init-tools when it tries to modprobe the ide-cd module I use. I don't know why it is so. Then the shitty thing is that my ethernet & wireless interfaces can no longer be configured, and another segfault comes when trying to modprobe the smartmontools. Please notice that I first tried to use the latest version of software-suspend (18.104.22.168-for-2.6.12), but the "apply" script told me that it wouldn't be OK, so I took back the changes. If interested, please find as an attachment the output by bootlogd. Thanks in advance ! JB, Belgium.
