Re: nvidia-settings + suspend2 problems
I rebuilt my laptop this weekend and was seeing this exact same thing at first: The text ui would come up, say Finding Allowances For Drivers, blank the screen and never resume. I had not seen this behavior before. I looked at my old modprobe.conf and found this:
options nvidia NVreg_NvAGP=3
I added this to my new modprobe.conf (depending on your distro you may need to add it to /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia) and was able to get past that screen.
Hope this helps! Suspend2 is still a little unreliable. The scren always blanks when it says "Doing atomic copy". Usually the screen flickers again after this and shuts down the PC, but every once in a while it never returns from this state. However, it's about 80% reliable now.
