when running acpid -d in 2.6.10-rc7, and I press the lid, I can see the results and all works great and dandy, I then tried moving up to 2.6.11 (using gentoo-dev-sources and brix's suspend-sources) and all of the sudden it broke. Any time I press it my computer immediately freezes. when I switch back to 2.6.10-rc7 it works fine again.
I would send an error log but as it freezes immediately there aren't any errors, I checked the logs
Steps to Reproduce:
1. press the lid button
acpid is able to catch the event and my system suspends
configuration files at:
Does the freeze indeed happen before acpid catches the event? if you comment out the lid button code in your acpid script does it still lock up?
I don't even have to have acpid running to have it freeze.
hmm, not sure, I have the same laptop but have no problems at all. What kernel are you currently using a could you attach your .config file? Thanks
All related files are at http://randomvoids.com/gentoo/
That's all of my current kernel configs.
Does this happen on plain gentoo-dev-sources or only when it is patched with suspend2?
both gentoo-dev-sources and suspend sources. I just tried remaking a new 2.6.11 kernel from gentoo-dev-sources and it still doesn't work, just freezes :/
Hm, thats a bit awkward to debug. Could you please test the latest 2.6.11-mm version just incase its already been fixed?
I've tried your kernel config and still can't reproduce this problem at all. Am I correct in guessing that you have the Nvidia card? I have the Ati video card so perhaps your issue is related to that difference. Do you use the nvidia driver? and if so, what happens if the nvidia kernel modules is not loaded?
I do indeed have the nvidia card, and no, -mm4 doesn't work, it still freezes the whole computer. I'll post my current kernel config at randomvoids.com/gentoo/config-2.6.11-mm4 in a few.
Do you use the nvidia driver? and if so, what happens if the nvidia kernel modules is not loaded?
Does X running (or not) make any difference?
aha, it is the nvidia driver, I can't believe I didn't think of that earlier. it works with it not loaded, doesn't with it loaded. Any suggestions there? or is that one of those, just wait for nvidia, type things
I'm sure the nvidia maintainers will love to hear they've got another closed-source driver issue on their hands :)
Kyle, could you please try different versions of the driver? There should be at least two in portage that work with 2.6.11
Well there's been no response for the past year here, so closing. If you still have the problem with recent driver versions, please reopen and report versions of the kernel and driver here
The computer that I was having that problem on completely died so I sent it back to dell and got a new one, so I won't be able to provide any more info. should've closed it sooner :/
Closed per reporter comment.
