I have a small problem on my new computer (see https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/528521-Problems-installing-42-3-on-new-Dell-XPS-8920-(dual-boot) for my installation problems!). It hibernates and re-instates without any problem (that I have noticed) except that the network doesn’t come back up. Putting
sudo service wicked restart
in a terminal starts it OK. My question is how do I get it to run this whenever it re-instates from hibernation?
I am running KDE on 42.3 and the network is wired.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
A similar thread…
A bug report may be warranted here.
As a workaround a script located in /usr/lib/systemd/system-sleep/ could be used to restart the network upon post hibernation…
Maybe something like the following …
if "$1" = "post" ] ; then
echo "Restarting wicked..."
systemctl restart wicked
Thanks very much. Once I had remembered to make the file executable - it worked!
All the best.
Yes, I should have mentioned that explicitly I guess. It is only a workaround, but perhaps the underlying cause may be due to an underlying a hardware-related quirk.
… and, as Deano hinted, add your voice to the bug report?
