Getting Software Suspend 2 to work


Ok, so I downloaded the patch for kernel 2.6.8 I believe it patch software-suspend-2.0.0.105-for-2.6.8.1. I applied it using the command
Code:
../software-suspend<version here>/apply
in the kernel sources directory. I recompiled the kernel, and installed it. But when I run
Code:
hibernate
I get some error, and the computer does not hibernate. thoughts? I'll have to get the error. Something about /proc/sys/<something here> not existing I think.

grep: /proc/sys/kernel/osrelease: No such file or directory
grep: /proc/sys/kernel/osrelease: No such file or directory

Ok... the hibernate script change often, nearly as often as the software-suspend patch. Make sure you have the "old" script installed, the one relative to the 2.6.8.1 kernel patch. Your hibernate script is probably too recent or too old, depending, it is probably looking for something that doesn't exist in your software-suspend version.

ok, I installed the debian package hibernate. I know I have a kernel that is 2.6.8, but I don't know if it's 2.6.8.1, will that make a huge difference? Where do I get the hibernate source?

I don't know about the exact version of the kernel, I suppose you will have to try

You can find hibernate at http://www.suspend2.net/

You might check to see if you have a swap partition - separate from your root partition - that is at least as large as your memory.

Is /proc mounted? I looked on one of my boxes (running 2.6.8-2-sparc64-smp) and it's there for me.

yes /proc is mounted. Why does that affect which version of hibernate I need to download? I was told I need to download a certain version because I have a 2.6.8 kernel

It doesn't affect it, but the errors you're getting make it seem like it's not mounted. I'm using hibernate 1.10-1 from unstable with kernel 2.6.9 and it works fine.

hmmmm....I'll hvae to check and make certain that /proc is mounted, but I'm pretty sure it is. Other thoughts? Should the most recent version of hibernate support all old patches?

I'm not quite sure... maybe but it's hard to tell.
My guess would be to upgrade to the latest kernel wih the latest software suspend2 patch as well, so you will be sure it is fine.

is it possible that the version of hibernate in Sarge is too old for the version of the patch I applied?
