Unable to recover from suspend with Nvidia drivers in FC5


Hi,

I installed FC5. Everything seems to be working fine. There was the issue about Nvidia drivers and I googled and found the following instructions. The Nvidia drivers work fine! Have GeForce Fx5200.

But now the "Suspend" option that worked before installing the Nvidia drivers is not working anymore. It's suspending properly, but it doesn't come out of it when I turn on the computer. It just freezes and be monitor goes to powersave when it is close to bringing up X. Ctrl+Alt+Fx or Ctrl+Alt+Del didn't help.

So I temporarily disabled Nvidia drivers using:

/usr/sbin/nvidia-config-display disable

and the suspend feature worked fine. Can anyone help me fix this? Thanks in advance.

I think this is a problem in the Nvidia driver. I have the same problem. I do not know if it can be resolved. I was never properly able to suspend with the Nvidia driver working in any 2.6.14 or 2.6.15 kernel (prior to FC5). Some more research may be required?

Yes, I know it has to do with the NVIDIA driver. Was asking if anyone knew how to fix this issue. Say, a patch to the NVIDIA drivers or the kernel. Or anything else for that matter.

I have exactly the same problem, but I have ATI Radeon X700. After installing drivers in FC5 from livna repository, the screen remained blank after resuming form suspend.Before the driver installation, everything worked fine.
The same thing is happening on my compaq nx6110 notebook with intel graphic card using original fedora drivers.
Maybe this problem is hardware independent?

I temporarily removed the file: '/etc/pm/functions-nvidia' and I was able to suspend to ram (STR S3) perfectly fine, but suspend to disk (S4) still does not work.

I read on another forum that this is actually an X.org bug. I wish I could cite the source, but I stumbled across it somewhere on Google accidentally while looking for intel i945 linux drivers.

So is it fixable? Btw, what is suspend to RAM? Is it the one used in laptops? I never understood it though... the stuff is already in RAM!!

Thanks,
Sarav

S3 suspend to ram is a standby mode where everything is powered down *except* for the ram. The ram holds the necessary information to resume from the standby state. Most modern laptops support this.

S4 suspend to disk is a mode where *everything* is powered down even the ram. The information to resume is stored on disk (in Linux it will be stored on the <swap> partition).

Yes, I am stating that I do have S3 working - on a desktop. I still have problems with S4.

Hi,
I have the same problem. I am running FC5 and update it frequently so I don't think my problem is an outdated file. I recently installed the nvidia drivers from Livna to get NWN running. NWN now runs fine, but suspend stopped working. It seems to suspend ok, but when I push the power button to resume, the display has may random characters on it and the PC is locked up. I have to reboot at this point. I have an nvidia GeForce 5500. I am running the latest kernel (2.6.17-1.2174_FC5).
Is there any solution to this problem? Has it been reported to the Fedora folks?
Thanks in advance.
