I have opensuse 11.4 on my notebook, but there is a little problem whit s2ram, it doesn’ work!! I see the console and variuos messages, and the system hangs. Pm-suspend.log reports:
“/usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/50rcnetwork suspend suspend: success.
Running hook /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/55NetworkManager suspend suspend:
Having NetworkManager put all interaces to sleep…Failed.
INFO: using built-in quirks database from HAL.
INFO: S2RAM_OPTS from HAL quirks: ’ --vbe_post --vbe_save --vbe_mode’.
Allocated buffer at 0x11000 (base is 0x0)”
I unload the xhci-hcd module before suspending. I stopped network service too, but nothing…
With opensuse 11.3 and kernel updated no problem.
Just add the community repository for the proprietary drivers (Yast – Software → Software Repos → Add → Community Repos → NVIDIA Repo). After the "add’ go to yast → Software → Software Management ---- and you shoulkd see that the upgrade is all chosen for you – so let it proceed.
If you don’t like the nVidia proprietary drivers compared to “nouveau” you simply uninstall the proprietary drivers.
As I said, this might not solve the suspend problem that you have, but you get to try out nVidia’s drivers which I found to be very, very much better than nouveau quite apart from anything to do with the “suspend to ram” function.
I have just installed the nvidia drivers from repository, but the system uses only the intel integrated card. I tried to start googleearth to test 3D, and I have error. I can’t switch between nvidia and intel graphics. Thanks for your help
I see, two VGA cards, Intel and nVidia. I suggest you go into the BIOS and switch to nVidia? Of course, you might wish to stick with the Intel on board VGA which is entirely up to you. If you switch to nVidia, it seems you don’t have the nVidia drivers installed (maybe, hmmm, undecided) because “nouveau” is showing. The command “rpm -qa | grep nvidia” will tell you whether they did install.
So you have a decision to make between nVidia and Intel.
Maybe you need to address in a separate/dedicated thread in the hardware forum the issue of why your nVidia card has been sidelined and how to get it working. The specs for this computer on the Asus site defo state that it has nVidia and there’s no mention of Intel graphics there.
I presume you can dual boot into your windows installation; does windows show nVidia in Control Panel → System → Device manager → Display Adapters?
