3.7.1 and Write-error on swap-device
 
I have another problem with 3.7.1 kernel.
When I wakeup my computer from hibernate, it starts normally but i see on screen a lot of "write-error on swap-device" lines.

Some last lines to example
Code:

Dec 30 14:46:40 aga kernel: [27030.604884] Write-error on swap-device (8:0:129914794)
Dec 30 14:46:40 aga kernel: [27030.604886] Write-error on swap-device (8:0:129914802)
Dec 30 14:46:40 aga kernel: [27030.604887] Write-error on swap-device (8:0:129914810)

I counted it's number:
Code:

# grep 14:46 syslog | grep Write-error |wc
  3714  37140  319404

After that, system works normally.

My swap partition is whole ok. I checked it by badblocks in write mode for to be sure. No errors.
I have SATA disk. On Internet I founded similar problems with 3.7.1 kernel.

So, maybe anybody have similar problem or knows how to resolve it?

The swap device is where your kernel stores it's image. Have you a resume=/dev/your_swap_device boot parameter on the kernel command line?

Then I would find the bug in 3.7.1 and confirm it, presuming somebody has filed one. For the record, add your lspci. I'm running on 3.7.1 here on a laptop also (Intel Panther Point chipset) and have no such errors.

Sure, otherwise how can I successfully resume my system from hibernate state? :)
Code:

grep resume /etc/lilo.conf
  append = "resume=/dev/sda3"

I meant 'add the lspci output to the bug report. Nvidia chipset, huh? I was warned away from them.
