confusion Penguin does not resume: -hibernate and initrd


Hya,

I am trying to set up hibernate on my Etch Penguin (Toshiba laptop).

It looks like that hibernate itself works (according to /var/log/hibernate), but this Penguin does not resume. Simply boot.

dmsg reads that kernel parameter is set "resume=/dev/sda4" and nothing happens, just a normal reboot as it can be. No error message or any clue at all. The only one warning (?) I got was uswsusp cannot update initrd.img.

I followed several README's and threads.
ccwilson's mini HOWTO does not say anything about initrd-tools.
/usr/share/doc/hibernate/HOWTO.gz says that initrd-tools is necessary.
Etch dependency tree says initrd-tools is not necessary.

I set up my penguin that all essential components are compiled in so that my penguin does not need initrd on boot.

QUESTION is
Do I need initrd to hibernate/resume on this setup?
Am I in right track to troubleshoot?

Any comments inputs will be appreciated.

Happy Penguins!

Hya,

Self reply:

initrd.img is necessary and lilo.conf needs "initrd=initrd.img-to.the.correct.kernel"

I was generating wrong images for a while, (different kernel version) ...


Happy Penguins!
