Description Konstantin Filtschew 2004-08-27 12:14:31 UTC

System: IBM Laptop T40 2373-8cg
Debian Linux Sid
Kernel + acpi patch
ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M7 LW [Radeon Mobility 7500]
Xorg.CVS from 2004-08-27 6pm middle european time

I have that small problem and don't know how to fix this.
Suspend to Ram works fine without problems.

If I try to suspend to disk: swsusp oder pmdisk,I get
a garbage screen after resume with Xwindows running.

swsusp2 trys to change to Xwindows after console view,
but can not manage it and the Xwindows freezes.

I've tried it without a windows manager and it is always
the same behaviour.

here are some logs(in both  nothing special):

I've tried to remove all modules from kernel and tried it
with modules, but nothing changed.

For testing, I've used the Frame buffer radeon(new) device
and on console with the fb-dev and without every suspend
worked fine.

Because of the not used windows manager(for testing), I think
this must be a x.org problem. Console suspending and resuming
was always without problems.

killing Xorg with:

Ctl + Alt + <== 

and tipieng in blindly "startx" works fine.
The screen turns to normal and I can work
again. Also returning to console works after killing
the Xwindows and restarting it.
But it's not a solution :(

that was not xorg, but the dri module for ati.

Have to contact the guys!
