I have Dell Latitude D600 laptop with Radeon R250 Lf (Radeon Mobility 9000 M9)
rev 01 card. This card works fine with XFree86 with suspend+resume both S3 and
S4. However, Xorg (I have tried 6.8.0 as well as a few CVS versions in the
past couple of weeks), without DRI, it resumes fine, but of course, X is too
slow. With DRI, right after switching to VT 7, the screen is garbled (white
pixels whizz around and nothing that was there before suspend can be seen).
With a bit of trail and error, found out that the following statement
_ret = drmCommandNone(info->drmFD, DRM_RADEON_CP_RESUME);
in DRIResume function causes this problem. If I put a return statement right
before the above statement, screen is restored with some ghosting, although X
I also need to use a patch to POST the card during resume, otherwise X hangs.
There are couple of patches for this: see
This is a duplicate of #1220.
This indeed is same as bug #1220. In fact, the fix there also fixes the
problem with this setup, so please consider this bug as resolved.
