I'll try TuxOnIce...
Now I'm using standard swsusp that comes with F8.

Default Re: nVidia driver + hibernate = no go?

I tried to update BIOS, hibernate (s2disk) still doesn't work. Suspend (s2ram) seem to stabilize, it doesn't hang up after resume - it did this with WinXP too (I'll update this after some time if BIOS update didn't fix this completely).

Well, still, I would like to hear smth from nVidia people, some feedback or so...

P.S. I'll still update post after my further findings... Even small ones to bump this up, coz I still hope nVidia staff will post some news...

Hey, I can't believe the thing! I got hibernate working with the new beta 173.08 driver!!!
This is the first time ever I got successful wakeup from hibernate on my T61 with nVidia driver, but please remember, this happened just once!
I'll report on stability of the thing, but for those interested, this is my config:
[xx@xx ~]$ X -version

Ok, I have done some tests and it seems that wakeup from hibernate works. It might be slower (2.5 mins wakeup with 2Gb RAM (used: max 300Mb)) than vesa, but it works with standart swsusp for F8.

To me 173.08 seems to be best driver released so far, I've enabled GylphCache too and it feels a little faster...

Good work, really...

Default Re: nVidia driver + hibernate = no go?

As I promised, some feedback

So the latest news: s2ram (suspend) works (with exception - below), s2disk (hibernate) works (with errors in syslog - below). Everything with 173.08, 2.6.24 kernel, standard swsusp2 for F8, no compiz or other composite w/ managers.
With 173.08 and GylphCache it's faster (really noticeable) with AA fonts, subpixel rendering and so on, no crashes, except wakeup from suspend when certain Wine windows are active.

So when having Oracle Forms6 Designer/Developer open while suspending, upon resume X dies and starts fresh gdm on next available tty. As far as I tested, only mentioned apps are causing trouble. Message in X log is:
Code:
Backtrace:
0: /usr/bin/X(xf86SigHandler+0x6d) [0x47fe0d]
1: /lib64/libc.so.6 [0x3101e30f30]
2: /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so [0x2aaaac6d31f8]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting
This seem to happen with latest stable driver and latest beta.

Also, wakeup from hibernate gives strange messages in syslog but it's resuming and working fine afterward. This is logged like 5 times or so.

hoho, thanks for the feedback Kirurgs. I'm trying to get hibernate work on my T61p with Ubuntu 8.04 for days now, and it's good to know there IS a solution. Too bad that EnvyNG doesn't include 173.08 because it is not a "stable" driver (I guess i could just install the driver manually).

Anyway idea when will the next stable Nvidia driver (assuming to be 173.xx) be released?

Default Re: nVidia driver + hibernate = no go?

I also have a T61p and am having the same issue you mention. It takes a longgg time to resume due to the "soft lockups" (which did not occur under Gutsy).

I have found that sometimes the machine will resume with screen on but keyboard inactive. Switching to the console with <CTRL><ALT><1> and back to X causes it to come back. (usually when this happens the moon light is still flashing)

Default Re: nVidia driver + hibernate = no go?

Ok, some feedback and findings again

s2ram don't work quite well with 173.08. First I thought it was Oracle + Wine stuff, really it wasn't or was just a part of the issue. Symptoms are as I described previously: fresh GDM login and errors in Xorg log and system messages.
Smth like this:
Code:
May 20 20:15:24 xxx gdm-binary[2707]: WARNING: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :0
Code:
Backtrace:
0: /usr/bin/X(xf86SigHandler+0x6d) [0x47fe0d]
1: /lib64/libc.so.6 [0x3101e30f30]
2: /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so [0x2aaaab3431f8]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting
I'll try to fugure out what is causing these crashes, but I hope new driver will there soon...
I's being a while since last one came out

I find it kind of sad that nvidia people don't show up in this thread. Previously they were more responsive. Anyway it's nice to see that there's some kind of improvement.
