failed soft reset (17.22 KB, text/plain)
2009-10-29 10:44 UTC, Shawn Landden

Description Shawn Landden 2008-11-26 05:10:50 UTC
Latest working kernel version: Never
Earliest failing kernel version: 2.6.27-7-desktop (distribution)
Distribution: Ubuntu 8.10 - Desktop
Hardware Environment: ECS NFORCE9M-A motherboard, Phenom 9550+, two 500GB SATA on 2nd and 3rd ports, DVD-RW on ATA/133
Software Environment: 
Problem Description: When I resume from suspend all reads from the hard drive fail, the X environment is entirely static, and is anything works on the command line it is only certain commands in ram, anything else results in kernel errors about reading from disk, also errors of not being able to read/access swap partition on same drive

Steps to reproduce: Suspend to RAM, Click power button to turn on, try to do anything in resultant situation, disk read errors reign (or it just freezes)
Comment 1 Shawn Landden 2008-11-26 05:14:55 UTC
x64, Controller chip is Nvidia GeForce8100 (integrated)
Comment 2 Tejun Heo 2008-11-26 07:45:12 UTC
Can you get kernel log after resume?  You'll probably need to mount a usb stick, cd into it and run dmesg once so that everything necessary is on memory and then suspend / resume and do "dmesg > dmesg.out" there.
Comment 3 Shawn Landden 2008-11-30 01:37:30 UTC
I havnt been able to even get a screen now, and as the passwd etc files are not accessable i cant log in via ssh either after resuming, how should i debug this
Comment 4 Tejun Heo 2008-11-30 02:06:47 UTC
Rafael, can you please help here?  Thanks.
Comment 5 Shawn Landden 2008-11-30 02:53:11 UTC
I have 8G of ram, but thats not quite enough to loop mount my entire root partition into ram, or is there a simpler way?
Comment 6 Rafael J. Wysocki 2008-11-30 05:34:28 UTC
Please attach the output of 'lspci -vv' (please choose the 'plain text' type of the attachment).

Comment 14 Tejun Heo 2009-01-21 05:15:37 UTC
Can you then please try to set up a serial or netconsole?  Without failing logs, I can't tell what's going on.  In the kernel source tree, Documentation/serial-console.txt and Documentation/networking/netconsole.txt documents each.

Comment 15 TJ 2009-03-23 09:36:56 UTC
I suspect this is related to http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12542

Looks like the same MCP78S hardware - in this user's original Ubuntu bug report


I've asked for the output of "lspci -vvnn" to compare [vendor:device] IDs.
Comment 16 Damir Syabitov 2009-04-25 10:36:50 UTC
Hi all. Sorry for my english at first. My new HP HDX18 laptop doesn't wake up
to. After resume it can't find any hard drives. This can be reproduced in all
kernels and distributions, what i try (ubuntu 8.10 (amd64, x86), Gentoo 2008
(x86_64), Fedora 10 (x86, x86_64)). All distributions have 2.6.27 kernel. On
Gentoo i try kernel 2.6.29 - nothing change. When i try to boot from usb hdd
and get all kernel logs. Here they are:

If need more info - contact me, please dsyabitov at gmail.com
Comment 17 Tejun Heo 2009-04-26 02:12:48 UTC
Damir, what you're seeing is a different problem.  Looking up....  it's bko#12276.  Can you please attach kernel log and "lspci -nn" and dmidecode output there?


I'll ping HP again.

Comment 18 Tejun Heo 2009-04-26 03:35:06 UTC
TJ: Can you please pull dmesg and lspci output from blp#334644?  It seems that MSI stops working after resuming.  cc'ing Peer Chen.

Hmm... Could it be due to missing RESUME quirk entry for nv_msi_ht_cap_quirk?  I'll prep a quick patch.

The patch is against 2.6.29.  Please test whether it makes any difference.  Thanks.
Comment 20 Shawn Landden 2009-10-14 18:02:28 UTC
This seems to be fixed in karmic 2.6.31

bug 12542 ?
Comment 21 Tejun Heo 2009-10-15 07:41:15 UTC
Yeah, this went in.  Thanks.
Comment 22 Shawn Landden 2009-10-29 10:35:04 UTC
While my main hard drive, the Western Digital ST3500630AS, is working great across suspends now, the Maxtor 6H500F0 is disappearing after a suspend; and I have to turn the computer off and on (not just a restart) to get it back. Hard drive problem?
Comment 23 Tejun Heo 2009-10-29 10:38:08 UTC
I'm afraid if soft resetting doesn't revive the drive, there isn't much driver can do about it.  :-(

failed soft reset

Yes, that seems to be the problem. Thanks for fixing the main bug.
