upgraded kernel, won't let me compile kernel once Suspend2 patches are applied


I upgraded to kernel 2.6.13, and downloaded the Suspend2 patch for it. I compiled it once w/out the patch and it worked fine. I then tried to compile it w/ the patch applied, and now it doens't work. It won't finish compiling the kernel. I'm using Debian Etch, "pure" kernel source, patch 2.2rc7, and make-kpkg(to compile the kernel). Help!!!

Not quite clear... I assume you mean the compilation fails with an error, right? Could be useful for us to see it...

Keep in mind that swsusp2 patches are BETA stuff and it may or may not work with your kernel/settings/laptop. Especially since the (damn madness ) 2.6 kernel change versions every 3 days or so, it is getting a real nightmare to programmer to make reliable patches. Also, some modules/drivers/stuff in your kernel may conflict about swsusp2 patches. Try to find out "what" is crashing the compilation, if it is a module, try to make it included, if it is included, make it a module, if you don't need it, remove it? Trying any earlier/older version of swsusp2 may do some good as well.

I had swsusp2 working w/ 2.6.8. I'll have to get back to you on the error itself. I thinks it's probably a module, because it occurs pretty late in the compilation.
