Nvidia driver not working properlly when resuming S3 suspend.
I just installed Fedora Core 6 on my system and the latest Nvidia driver (1.0-9631)..
Before installing the Nvidia driver, the S3 suspend function worked perfectly... after in stalling the driver it no longer resumes correctly.. the screen remains blank and nothing I do will wake it.. I tried switching to a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+F5.. nothing just blank..
The only thing I can do is reboot the machine..
Anyone have any ideas how I could work around this problem?
hey there - ran into similar junk when setting up my HTPC. Eventually I went back to FC5 for many reasons, but the short answer to what I believe you need is:
-- the beta driver 9742.
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9742-beta-pkg1.run is what i have it named as.
You should be able to google it.
This driver worked for me, without a hitch, getting rid of the 'random blank screen' that I experienced with the previous driver(s).
Thanks for the reply poweredbydodge!
Unfortunately the latest set of drivers no longer seem to support my outdated Geforce 4 MX440..
But I found a solution on the Nvidia forums..
Basically I just had to:
Boot the kernel with agp=off
and edit /etc/pm/functions-nvidia, just commenting out "/usr/sbin/vbetool post" in resume_video() like:
