swsusp in FC2


Has anyone tried swsusp in FC2?
If you have tried it, can you pl post a brief report on it?
Did you have to recompile the kernel for it?
or were you able to find any precompiled rpms that we could use?

Any help would be appreciated.

I tried on a vanilla 2.6.6 and it worked but I could not resume to the partition for some reason, suspend to ram worked but my xserver would not bring the screen back on...

I too would be very interested to see if anyone knows how to get the "suspend" mode to work.

I am a college student with a laptop. Consequently, I'm in and out of the room a lot and don't like to leave my laptop running all the time. If I right click on the little "klaptop" icon in the systray, I can choose to standby, suspend, or hibernate.

The standby mode shuts the computer off very quickly (since I assume it keeps power to the RAM), but whenever I turn the machine back on, it just reboots itself. Also, I can never get my machine to come out of the suspend mode...it just sits there with a blank screen.

I think these problems may have something to do with needing to set a default resume partition???

I compiled a vanilla 2.6.6 and just chose it from menuconfig and set up my swap as the resume partition (suspend to disk)... I think you also have to deselect any smp functionality to get it to save to disk. Suspend to ram (software suspend) worked great but as I said no xserver on reboot... it's worth checking out though as it may work on your machine...
