Believe it or not, the box survived.

Once I cracked her open so she could get thoroughly dried out, everything came back on line.

Freaking amazing.

Okay,

Hibernate seems to work now, but I have to stop the gdm before I hibernate and then restart it. Thus, it isn't very usefull.

Any thoughts on how to get around this problem?

Just for fun I switch the Driver "nvidia" to Driver "nv" and hibernate from within X worked flawlessly.

Entirely the binary nvidia driver problem...

This is Nvidia's "Nvidia + Linux" forum. I seem to recall there being some discussions on getting the proprietary driver to play nicely. You'll need to join before you can search the forum, but it's not a big deal.

Good luck.

So I decided to try to install suspend2 for dapper (2.6.15-28-686) but always get a error that my patch won't apply cleanly. This is not as surprise according to the Software Suspend2 HOWTO:

Once you have succeeded in compiling your kernel, you can apply the Suspend2 patches against your source tree. This is most easily done using a command along the lines of...

cd /usr/src/linux (the root directory of your tree)
bzcat /path/to/patch | patch -p1

If the kernel versions match, then no rejects or offsets should occur. If your kernel is not the vanilla one from kernel.org, you will have to apply these patches manually and edit some of the rejected hunks.


I'm using the current running ubuntu kernel (2.6.15-28-686), not a vanilla kernel from kernel.org.

1) What are the differences between the ubuntu kernel and a vanilla kernel?

or

2) How do I edit (customise) the patches so that they'll apply cleanly to my kernel?

Thanks

Don't know if this thread is still active, but I think the issue is there is not an "a0" suspend to disk partition for this machine and that needs to be created for these dell i8100's.

I can create the whole configuration with one exception:

How do I configure GRUB to boot off of the a0 (sda1) partition and not the MBR?

Thanks,
CH
