|| ||Announce: Swsusp-2.0-2.6-alpha1|
|| ||Sat, 25 Oct 2003 21:12:54 +1300|
I'm pleased to be able to announce the first test release of a port of
the current 2.0 pre-release Software Suspend code to 2.6. This is now
available from www.sourceforge.net/projects/swsusp and
- The patch is prepared against current bk. It should apply against
test8 with minimal and perhaps no fuss.
- Breaks current Software Suspend implementations in the kernel.
Apologies to Patrick and Pavel. I won't be leaving it this way for long,
- I/O is slow and jerky. I need to investigate the cause for this
further; something in the hooks to the new bio code is not quite right.
Apart from the above, and the normal problems with incomplete driver
support will continue. In addition, you may see freezing failures. If
the process hangs at 'Freezing processes: Waiting for activity to
finish' or 'Syncing remaining I/O', try pressing escape once. If the
process doesn't abort, try a second time (which tries harder to restart
things). All going well, you should be able to cancel the suspend. A log
of what went wrong will be stored in /var/log/messages. Run it through
ksymoops if necessary and send it to me, and I should be able to address
Please send feedback via the Software Suspend mailing list on
Sourceforge. See http://swsusp.sf.net for FAQs, mailing list details and
so on. Because the code is essentially the same as the 2.4 version, many
of the solutions to issues will be the same.
As always, I look forward to hearing feedback.
