Latest working kernel version: Unknown
Earliest failing kernel version: Unknown
Distribution: Slackware (current)
Hardware Environment: Lenovo Thinkpad T61
As a base kernel config I am using http://dotimes.com/download/config-t61
With that configuration, if I turn CONFIG_NO_HZ on resume fails leaving me with a blinking half moon and a flashing text mode cursor in the upper left hand part of the screen.
Steps to reproduce:
make oldconfig with the mentioned kernel configuration saying yes to all 1 question.
make menuconfig - turn on the tickless kernel feature
make and install
s2ram -f -a3
perform some interrupt to wake the computer (eg press Fn key)
What other information is needed/desired for this bug? What steps can I do to help debug this?
First, can you check the latest -git kernel please?
Can you please please try 2.6.27-rc7 ?
2.6.27-rc7-git2 seems to have this problem fixed. I used the config file from above and made reasonable answers to the new functionality and turned on CONFIG_NO_HZ
