No issues noted on x86_64 Ivy Bridge and i686 Diamondville.

@dhgutteridge: positive testing on two systems should increase Karma by +2, no?

User Icon anonymous commented & provided feedback 5 years ago

@sys-admins: IMHO, anonymous should not be able to vote.

karma: +1

User Icon hreindl commented & provided feedback 5 years ago

no - damned - one person one vote - and i would love to see no karma and comments from people with no idendity at all

User Icon anonymous commented & provided feedback 5 years ago

That's what I was saying: Anonymous (=people with no identity) should not be able to give karma (or even comment). I may have been understandable but it was just suggestion (to change the system)... Cheers

Anonymous karma is not included in the karma count. People should still be able to comment, even if it means we get some less than helpful comments.

Suspend/Resume Regression: When resuming from sleep the screen stays black/blank and the computer freezes. I cannot access virtual consoles or SSH into the system to gracefully shutdown the machine and must perform a forced reset. It was working on kernel 4.4.9 and I didn't notice any issues with kernel 4.5.5-201. Computer is a Lenovo G510 [i3-4000M].

User Icon doskias commented & provided feedback 5 years ago

@sassam I presume you don't have Fedora on GNOME. I don't see any option for suspend/hibernate on GNOME. You are probably on a different DE.

User Icon sassam commented & provided feedback 5 years ago

@doskias, I am running GNOME on Fedora 23 (x86_64) and apologize for not including that bit of info in my previous comment. But, as per my comment, this happens, "When resuming from sleep..." (Suspend-to-Memory). This occurs when I close the lid on my laptop and it goes into sleep mode. Hibernation (Suspend-to-Disk) has never worked on my system. By the way, the Power Off option in the GNOME System Status menu turns into a Pause button, or Sleep option, when the ALT-key is pressed.

@sassam I just tested this on my machine. I have a G74Sx i7, GTX 560M

I also tested with Hibernate function which I made it work thanks to this: http://blog.kriptonium.com/2015/12/fedora-23-hibernate.html

I suspect that your problem resides with the GPU drivers. If you have the free drivers then I suggest you try the proprietary ones instead. If you have proprietary drivers, I suggest you uninstall and then reinstall them.

User Icon sassam commented & provided feedback 5 years ago

@doskias thanks for the link, but unfortunately I have tried his solution and it does not work for me. Resuming from hibernate may work once but does not give consistent results when repeated. I use the procedure highlighted in http://blog.kriptonium.com/2015/12/fedora-23-hibernate.html every time I test new kernels to see if my hibernation issue is resolved. As for my GPU drivers, my system is pure Intel and my graphics card is the Intel HD Graphics 4600. I have used the drivers from the Fedora Updates repo, as well as the drivers released by Intel at https://01.org/linuxgraphics/, but my issue still persists. I have even used the troubleshooting procedures at https://01.org/blogs/rzhang/2015/best-practice-debug-linux-suspend/hibernate-issues. Adding CONFIG_DRM_I915=n to the kernel command worked for me in the past and I have tested this new kernel with and without the CONFIG_DRM_I915=n fix, yet the sleep/wake for me on my system is unstable. I had no issues with the sleep and resume in kernel 4.4.9 and 4.5.5-201; it was only after updating to kernel 4.5.6-200 that the issue reappeared. I appreciate your assistance in this issue, however by adding another +1 to the kernel's karma in response to my comment is a disservice to the Fedora community who are trying to ensure the quality of these packages and need accurate stats to pinpoint any issues users encounter.

@sassam

I am experiencing the same issue you have where hibernation works sometimes and fails other times. Someone on a reddit post told me that instead of using UUID, use the actual device file. So resume=/dev/sda6 for example. I did this and now hibernate works everytime for me.

User Icon sassam commented & provided feedback 5 years ago

Thank you @urbenlegend for your assistance in helping me troubleshoot this issue. Your suggestion was also advised in a comment from the site @doskias recommended and it didn't work for me in Fedora 23, however, it does work flawlessly (along with sleep/resume) in CentOS 7.2. I have reverted back to kernel 4.4.9 for now and will continue trying with future kernel releases.
