Thanks for posting cwwilson. I just did this tonight and I can now get standby via the battery icon in KDE.
I can't get suspend working yet (I freeze, I get black screen and lose X I'm glad I have control+alt+del to do reboot), but I do have two things not in line with your recommended kernel settings. So I was not surprised that I may have a glitch somewhere as I don't meet the minimum recommended.
BUT OMG! YOU INADVERTANTLY GAVE ME BACK MY TAP+DRAG WITH MY TOUCHPAD
Before doing this, I used to have to hit Function+F4 on my laptop to make the mobo initiate the standby (I did not have the option in KDE), which worked well but I could not have the touchpad custom drivers installed, as when I resumed I would totally lose my touchpad! Even control+alt+backspace didnt reset the touchpad! I had to reboot. So up until now I've been running the laptop without the custom touchpad drivers installed, and just using the default touchpad driver in X, but I had no tap + drag.
So after I got my standby to work I decided to experiment and re-try installing the touchpad drivers, thinking to myself "well maybe my touchpad was freezing becuase it looks for a standby signal from KDE and not my mobo. Maybe now it will see some signal from the KDE battery icon and will now standby/resume nicely."
Well to my surprise my guess was right! After installing the touchpad drivers for my custom kernel I can do standby and when I resume I can do tap and drag !
One question if you don't mind, as you are my compile kernel guru hahah
My question is, to get my kernel options "in-line" with your recommended settings, do I simply go into my 2.4 kernel that came with slackware, go to my 126.96.36.199 kernel source directory, run "make xconfig" and just tweak those settings, hit save, then run make and then run make modules install again. Effectively that would in my mind overwrite my 188.8.131.52 kernel and it's respective modules.
Assuming that the above is correct, will I need to re-install my wireless drivers, guarddog firewall, & touchpad drivers. Those are the only items I have actually run an install of while being in this kernel as of present.
Or, should I just copy out the config file, delete the 184.108.40.206 kernel and run a full make all over and reinstall the touchpad, wireless, guarddog.
Thank you in advance. Again sorry if I typed to much, I tend to ramble on.
