Fedora Core 4 Suspend Resume Mouse Problems


My Fedora Core 4 system has two minor problems:

One, if I resume the computer from standby, the touchpad does not work any more. Strangely, if I have a pS/2 mouse plugged in, then the touchpad will work, and so will the ps/2 one. I've tried fiddling with the xorg.conf file, but I'm not that sure about what I'm doing.

Here is some parts from the file:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Synaptics" "AlwaysCore"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Synaptics"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
Option "LeftEdge" "120"
Option "RightEdge" "830"
Option "TopEdge" "120"
Option "BottomEdge" "650"
Option "FingerLow" "14"
Option "FingerHigh" "15"
Option "MaxTapMove" "0"
Option "VertScrollDelta" "0"
Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0"
Option "MinSpeed" "0.5"
Option "MaxSpeed" "0.65"
EndSection

The other strange problem I have is that my pcmcia card will not resume either. On Fedora Core 3 I could restart it with a cardctl command, but now the same commands don't seem to work. However I may still be able to fix this with an update. I would imagine that a lot of other people have this mouse problem though.

I am not sure if you are using Suspend2 or old suspend (1)

Anyways before you suspend add the usb modules to be removed before suspending (therefore they should be automatically loaded upon resume. I have the following modules unloaded/loaded for suspend(1):
"usb_storage sbp2 uhci_hcd stir4200 rt2500 ehci_hcd ipw2100 ipw2200 8139cp

My touchpad is /dev/psaux

Also remove psmouse on suspend, when it's loaded on resume it should reset the touchpad and let it work again.

thankyou!

how exactly do I carry these operations through? Do I just type it at the command prompt before I suspend? I don't know what suspend I am using, but it is the same one that KLaptop uses. I suppose that this is the newest revision since I am using FC4.

Thanks a heap anyway.

I am not sure how to do it in FC4.

http://personal.eunet.fi/pp/joakim/nx7010.html#swsusp


The above page has instrucutions for both swsusp and suspend2. Since your Xsession comes up properly. You need not start a dummy Xsession in your script.


I don't know where klaptop keeps its config scripts as I dont have it. Try:
$> locate klaptop

and find the script. remove/add the modules stated above. Post your conclusions here.
