Default Re: Suspend broken on FC5.


For me, it works just fine. I've pasted below an email I just sent to the FC mailing lists on how I got it going. I hope it helps you


1. boot with the kernel option agp=off (FC builds the agpgart module into the
2. add

Option "NvAgp" "1"

to your xorg.conf

Once you have this, check you are using the correct agp module with

[root@localhost X11]# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status: Enabled
Driver: NVIDIA
AGP Rate: 4x
Fast Writes: Disabled
SBA: Disabled

The driver should say NVIDIA

Once you have done this, you system should suspend (at least, for me it did).
However, you may have problems on resume in that the screen stays blank. A
work around to this, suggested to me via the nvidia forum was to
edit /etc/pm/functions-nvidia to comment out the call to /usr/sbin/vbetool
post in resume_video()

### /usr/sbin/vbetool post
/usr/sbin/vbetool dpms on
/usr/sbin/vbetool vbestate restore < /var/run/vbestate
) >/dev/null 2>&1
