I've been putting Redhat 5.2 on my 1451i (after eagerly waiting 3 months
for delivery ;-( ) and it has been going very well so far. My only
problem is that it won't hibernate under Linux. It will go to standby
(screen, disk off), it will suspend (everything off but the RAM), but
it won't write RAM to disk and shut down. It just beeps and that's it
when I press Fn-F12.
This function does work under Win 98, so I know the hibernation file
exists. I have recompiled the kernel (2.0.36) to include APM BIOS support.
I have tried it with and without apmd running and with and without PCMCIA
support in the kernel (I haven't actually tried any PC cards in it yet).
Once, I thought apmd logged a problem with hda1 not being ready, but that
doesn't seem reproduceable. Also, I have tried it with mounted hda1 (Win98)
partitions and there is no change in the behaviour.
Any suggestions? I'd really like to get this feature working!
Thanks in advance!
