suspend2 and nvidia drivers
first i would like to thank all the nVIDIA TEAM who works hard to provide us good linux drivers and answers very quickly in this forum.
I've got a bi-proc Pentium IV-HT machine (Sony VAIO desktop) with a GeFORCE 5700 Nvidia video card with 128 MB Memory.
I run a Linux Ubuntu 5.1 with a kernel 2.6.15 and patched for suspend2-2.2
All compiled well, following howtos on suspend2.net and i can hibernate in text mode and also hbernate in X with generic nv driver...
...but with the nvidia drivers (latest 8178) i get a blank screen when resuming.
I disabled the agpgart stuff in the kernel and i don't know what i should do to get the hibernate/suspend2 work with the good nvidia drivers !
in xorg.conf :
i also can send the nvidia-bur-report.log file if somebody can help me
I read somewhere that i should edit a nv.c file but i do not find it, i've always installed the nvidia drivers via the installer not sources
Thanks a lot in advance and merry christmas !

Re: suspend2 and nvidia drivers
i know that problem
in the earlier versions i editet the nv.c with "case PM_SUSPEND_STANDBY" line to work with suspend2 which is descriped in the suspend2 wiki.
Is it not possible to make a nv driver which is ready for suspending?
I hope and wait for some infos about making the new driver work with suspend2
thanks for that great job to nv
