Description Dave Morgan 2010-02-13 13:11:37 UTC
Inspiron 1720, NVIDIA 8600M GT.  Arch Linux with stock Arch kernel.

If I install any 2.6.32 kernel I can still successfully suspend.  pm-suspend log says everything was ok.

However, when I try to resume the laptop reboots immediately.  I can't see anything in the logs to say anything went wrong.  It simply reboots.

This is fixed by downgrading to 2.6.31 kernel (suspend and resume previously worked with all 2.6.30 and 2.6.29 kernels too).

I'm afraid the only effective way of debugging this would be to carry out a bisection of commits between 2.6.31 and 2.6.32.

Confirmed on Inspiron 6400 with Nvidia 7200. Arch linux with stock arch kernel.

Resuming the laptop results in immediate reboot with no message. Resume hook added, no change. Also manual suspending from console does not work.

Suspend to disk works fine.
Comment 3 Rafael J. Wysocki 2010-02-22 21:47:10 UTC
What graphics driver is used?
Comment 4 tuhyk 2010-02-22 21:50:32 UTC
Driver nvidia (nvidia 190.53-4)
Comment 5 Rafael J. Wysocki 2010-02-22 22:06:48 UTC
Is this a binary-only one?
Comment 6 Dave Morgan 2010-02-23 07:12:33 UTC
I use the same nvidia 190.53 driver.  It is the binary only version.
Comment 7 Dave Morgan 2010-02-23 07:17:26 UTC
I should add that nividia 190.53 and kernel 2.6.31 does not produce this problem.
Comment 8 Rafael J. Wysocki 2010-02-23 19:39:10 UTC
Which doesn't matter a tiny whit.

Problems related to binary-only drivers cannot be effectively debugged by the kernel developers.

I'm dropping this one from the list of recent kernel regressions.

Also confirmed on Sony Vaio VGN-FW21J with Fedora 14 AMD64 and Ubuntu 10.10 AMD64.

Resuming the laptop results in immediate reboot with no message. Resume hook
added, no change. Also manual suspending from console does not work. Suspend to disk doesn't work.

Also confirmed on Sony Vaio VGN-FW21J with Fedora 14 AMD64 and Ubuntu 10.10 AMD64 (both with 2.6.35 kernel).

Resuming the laptop results in immediate reboot with no message. Resume hook
added, no change. Also manual suspending from console does not work. Suspend to disk doesn't work.
Comment 11 Rafael J. Wysocki 2011-01-16 22:23:36 UTC
Does anyone have tested this on 2.6.37 with the nouveau driver?  If so, then
with what result?
Comment 12 Zhang Rui 2012-01-18 01:58:32 UTC
Bug closed as there is no response from the bug reporter.
Please feel free to re-open it if the problem still exists in the latest upstream kernel.
