Shutdown and Resume with Acer 5750G

Hi, I’m using Acer 5750G with Linux 3.11.10-7-desktop
openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64)

Most things work fine out of the box. But during Shutdown and Resume sometimes the laptop hangs with the kde splash screen. In this state it is even not possible to switch to another terminal with Strg+Alt Fn. Any ideas how to cure this are appreciated.

Yes. It’s the kernel. A patch for Acer laptops was added to kernel 3.12x and higher. Add the repo below with (kernel-desktop-3.13.7-1.1.ga68bc7c.x86_64.rpm) to YaST and update the kernel-desktop.
After updating reboot.

Thanks, so far so good. Bit with the new kernel 3.13 the broadcom-wl wireless driver doesn’t work. Is there an update for the new kernel available ?

The broadcom issue could be fixed with Thanks to abik0

Now its solved.

One remark: with the new kernel the temperatures measured by ksensors are much lower now.

Yes, it’s an Optimus system and the new kernel has powered off the nvidia card, you probably didn’t use it any how, now your battery will last longer too.
