dmesg fails with ptyx8 abd ptyub
lsof before suspend
Description GNUtoo 2008-03-20 12:36:02 UTC
Latest working kernel version:? Earliest failing kernel version:? Distribution:gentoo Hardware Environment:VGN-BX297XP(sony laptop) Software Environment: Problem Description:the computer can't go into suspend mode... i tried pm_trace with the latest kernel but if i wait long enough before shutting down the computer,i don't have a match: >PM: Adding info for No Bus:network_throughput > Magic number: 0:767:443 >PM: Adding info for No Bus:md0 i also tried the different pm_test from the kernel: only freezer works fine Steps to reproduce: don't start x, echo 1 >/sys/power/pm_trace echo mem > /sys/power/state
Comment 1 Rafael J. Wysocki 2008-03-20 12:51:16 UTC
Please try with init=/bin/bash and pm_test set to "devices".

Created attachment 15355 [details] dmesg fails with ptyx8 abd ptyub
Comment 4 GNUtoo 2008-03-20 12:58:26 UTC
otherwise i get things such as : hash matches device ptyx8 hash matches device ptyub but no correspondance in lsof before standby

(In reply to comment #1) > Please try with init=/bin/bash and pm_test set to "devices". > ok i'll try with init=/bin/bash i already tried pm_test set to device...it fails differently: before: the screen doesn't shuts down and there is a _ that freeze pm_test set to device: screen shuts itself down...but cpu doesn't and it doesn't want to come back like with freezer. even pressing the power button doesn't change anything... i'll re-run it and pay attention if the hdd is acceded after the screen shutdown (cause my memory isn't great)

no hdd runninng after screen suspension and no messages... but my usb mouse was powered (In reply to comment #5) > (In reply to comment #1) > > Please try with init=/bin/bash and pm_test set to "devices". > > > > ok i'll try with init=/bin/bash > i already tried pm_test set to device...it fails differently: > before: > the screen doesn't shuts down and there is a _ that freeze > pm_test set to device: > screen shuts itself down...but cpu doesn't and it doesn't want to come back > like with freezer. > even pressing the power button doesn't change anything... > > i'll re-run it and pay attention if the hdd is acceded after the screen > shutdown > (cause my memory isn't great) > no hdd runninng after screen suspension and no messages... > Magic number: 0:65:749 but my usb mouse was powered
Comment 7 GNUtoo 2008-09-05 13:34:50 UTC
i've retried once more but i've still the same result: $ dmesg | grep -i magic -C 4 [ 6.310494] Using IPI Shortcut mode [ 6.310567] PM: Adding info for No Bus:cpu_dma_latency [ 6.310608] PM: Adding info for No Bus:network_latency [ 6.310645] PM: Adding info for No Bus:network_throughput [ 6.310851] Magic number: 8:241:97 [ 6.311317] Freeing unused kernel memory: 328k freed [ 6.311413] PM: Adding info for No Bus:vcs1 [ 6.311489] PM: Adding info for No Bus:vcsa1 [ 6.324337] ata1: soft resetting link but this time i've found that: http://devresources.linux-foundation.org/dev/robustmutexes/src/fusyn.hg/Documentation/power/video.txt and i've used a text console(no framebuffer) and in theses modes the video fails to come back... *platform *processor *core when i startx in theses cases i don't have a desktop but a blank screen with lines... could the fact that the computer refuses to goes in standby be related to the video?
Comment 8 Rafael J. Wysocki 2008-09-05 13:38:15 UTC
Yes, it could. Have you tried s2ram (http://en.opensuse.org/s2ram) already?
Comment 9 GNUtoo 2008-09-06 09:16:01 UTC
I think that vbetool segfaults: # s2ram --vbe_save --vbe_post --vbe_mode --force Switching from vt7 to vt1 Calling save_state Segmentation fault if i call it only with --force the same problem appears,that is to say: It refuses to suspend... with a _ blinking on the top left of the screen
Comment 10 Rafael J. Wysocki 2008-09-06 09:20:44 UTC
Which kernel did you test it with?
Comment 11 GNUtoo 2008-09-07 02:37:04 UTC
Linux port4 2.6.26_port4 #4 PREEMPT Fri Sep 5 21:15:46 CEST 2008 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 2.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux it's a vanilla kernel...that is to say the kernel from kenrel.org without patches
Comment 12 Zhang Rui 2008-11-20 19:43:01 UTC
seems like driver problem. does the problem still exist in 2.6.27 kernel? please build device drivers as modules if possible. then re-do the test in comment #1.
Comment 13 GNUtoo 2008-11-21 08:05:42 UTC
yes it does... I tested it but not with evrythings as modules... i'll retry...with modules... I'll also do init=/bin/bash,that will do it inside initrd...so I will be able to remove hdd's support and similar
Comment 14 GNUtoo 2008-12-02 08:23:58 UTC
I've tried the following(in busybox of the intrd): lsmod | sed 's/ .*//' > modules for x in modules: do rmmod $x done and I rmmodded the modules that were lasting... then i did an echo mem > /sys/power/state and...it worked...it suspended!!! but when it came out of suspend i didn't have my screen back...so I did a reboot
Comment 15 GNUtoo 2008-12-02 08:25:31 UTC
by the way I did a perl script for converting my kernel .config in modules...so every thing that could be as module is as module(even the filesystems)...
Comment 16 Zhang Rui 2008-12-02 18:01:45 UTC
you don't need to compile everything as modules, this time, please try to remove some device drivers. how about just removing all pci device drivers except the harddisk?
Comment 17 Zhang Rui 2009-03-18 19:17:32 UTC
ping GNUtoo. :) plus you'd better do the test in 2.6.28
Comment 18 GNUtoo 2009-03-25 20:16:52 UTC
I tested my usual config(that is nearly evrything as =y) and it didn't suspend as usual... Maybe I should make a script for loading and unloading the modules and testing suspend...but it would be very time consuming I'll also try radeonfb to see if it can restore the screen.

Comment 20 GNUtoo 2009-03-25 22:33:54 UTC
I found the module that prevented suspend...it's ata_piix unfortunately: *I haven't ahci in my bios *my hdds reside on the ata_piix controller so I bet I'd have to wait for a fix
Comment 21 GNUtoo 2009-03-25 22:37:47 UTC
(by the way my screen comes back as black with vesafb and without framebuffer(I don't see the logo) and I wasn't able to make radeonfb work maybe the pci id issue is still present i'll investigate for radeonfb)

Re-assign to Tejun.

Hmmm... Can you please post the output of dmidecode?

Comment 26 Tejun Heo 2009-03-30 07:21:14 UTC
Created attachment 20730 [details] vgn-bx297xp-brokensuspend.patch Sorry about the delay. Does the attached patch make any difference?
Comment 27 GNUtoo 2009-03-30 21:50:06 UTC
thanks a lot!!! it works now...even with X and everything (I had to use vbetools)(I only have a little problem at resume:my real tty console doesn't use all the screen) (I used: vbetool vbestate save > /tmp/delme; echo 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep; vbetool post; vbetool vbestate restore < /tmp/delme; setfont drdos8x16) The only thing is that I have to switch to a tty before suspend otherwise I've got garbage on the screen...
Comment 28 Tejun Heo 2009-03-31 01:38:31 UTC
Thanks for testing, so the BIOS expects the ATA controller to be powered when the OS calls in for ACPI sleep state. Rafael, I think we talked about this before but is it necessary to power of a PCI device at all for suspend? Anyways, I'll forward the patch upstream. For the video related problems, yeah, unfortunately, video suspend/resume is still a bit of black magic but with coming KMS I think it will get better. Distros usually ship some sort of assorted black magic suspend/resume helper which usually includes switching VTs, so you might wanna try to find out if there's any for whatever you're using. Resolving as FIXED. Thanks.
Comment 29 Tejun Heo 2009-03-31 01:39:04 UTC
Hmm... I can't change the status or reassign the bug to me. Jeff, can you please close it?
