Thread: IBM T60 SuSe 11.4 Fails to Hibernate.

  1. #1

    Default IBM T60 SuSe 11.4 Fails to Hibernate.

    First I have to say generally I'm highly impressed with 11.4 and kudos to those that put it together.
    However I do have a couple of problems one of which is new i.e it worked fine under 11.2 /3 but not this version.

    Trying to go into Hibernate results in the machine starting to go into hibernation but then aborting and coming out of hibernation.

    Machine suspends to RAM fine.

    The problem appears to be that it can't find a valid disk partition to save the memory image to.

    The following is a partial printout of /var/log/pm-suspend.log

    ====================
    /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/00logging hibernate hibernate: success.
    Running hook /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/00powersave hibernate hibernate:

    Wed Mar 16 21:48:01 GMT 2011: Running hooks for thaw
    Running hook /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/30s2disk-check thaw hibernate:

    ======================

    The two lines TEST 1 and TEST2 are markers I have added to 30s2disk-check to see what is happening I am confused because it seems to run through a bit of the script twice and get two different values for the save (resume) partition. one of which I have sda2 and one of which is a mystery i.e /dev/dm-2

    any pointers much appreciated.

    I don't understand this but here's a thought:

    Seems to be saying that your swap partition is not active. Is it mounted I wonder. Do you have a line like this in the file fstab:
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-blah-blah-blah-part2 swap swap defaults 0 0
    Check in Yast --> system --> partitioner, that you have a swap partition and that swap is mounted

    Yes I do have a mounted swap partition, however I do not want to "hibernate" to the swap partition so the boot command string is as follows:-
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.37.1-1.2-desktop root=/dev/System/Root resume=/dev/sda2 /splash=silent quiet showopts vga=0x345
    initrd /initrd-2.6.37.1-1.2-desktop

    The resume stanza should direct it to hibernate to the specified device, least ways always has done up to now.

    That's now beyond my knowledge base. I hope someone can help.

    Just to close this down a subsequent re-installation cured this, I have no idea why or what was happening previously.
