Fedora 18 with Xfce on the HP Pavilion g6-2210us — all systems are very, very ‘go’

  1. You don’t say if you are suspending to ram or disk. I’ve found with recent kernels that suspend to disk works well but to ram doesn’t resume or resumes with problems like mouse not working. I’m on F17 on this laptop but the kernels on both 17 & 18 are 3.8.x.

    1. I’m talking about suspend to RAM. I’ve had no trouble with this on my older (circa 2010) AMD-running hardware. I imagine the trouble now is that the kernel and video drivers haven’t caught up to the HD 7000-series AMD video chips.

  2. This may or may not be helpful, does it appear that the computer woke up but the display is dark? I had that happen on a very old thinkpad running Fedora a while ago. My fix was to shell out to a terminal (ctrl-alt-f3 or so) then back to the desktop by ctrl-alt-f7 or 8 I think. Voila, desktop was now visible. If you get a dual boot going, I’ll be interested to know about it. My HP is a different model, but some similarities also I think. I left a comment about that on another thread.
