Description Mauri Korkeala 2006-08-12 03:29:53 UTC
Fedora Core 6 test2
Ati mobility radeon 9600 M10
Compaq nw8000

After trying to resume from suspend to ram (using gnome menu-bar suspend button)
the screen remains blank.

It is possible to log in blindly using virtual terminal and do reboot the
computer. Also remote logging via SSH works and the computer seems to be running
otherwise normally.

Suspend to ram has been working previously with this hardware. I just can't
remember when (during FC5 after updates) and what driver I was using at that point.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=390913  Possibly a related bug.
Comment 2 Timo Jyrinki 2007-02-22 03:32:04 UTC
Does the suspend to ram work with the current Fedora Core 6?
Comment 3 Daniel Stone 2007-02-27 01:33:09 UTC
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
Comment 4 Mauri Korkeala 2007-03-03 04:51:09 UTC
The problem still persists with FC6. (Sorry it took for a while to test...)
Comment 5 Mauri Korkeala 2007-05-23 00:44:53 UTC
With latest Fedora rawhide (pre F7) including the new quirk system, the laptop can now resume OK. 
The quirks that are needed to bring the screen back up are:
vbemode-restore and vbestate-restore

Actually only the quirk vbestate-restore was enough, but it seemed that the combined quirk produced less colored garbage to the screen while resuming. This how ever might been just random behavior.
