Re: swsusp, thinkpad module, bootsplash

Vis-a-vis Kevin's note of 02/03/2005 01:11 PM:
I used the current information on http://softwaresuspend.berlios.de/fedora/ and the patches as provided

wget -c http://download.berlios.de/softwaresuspend/software-suspend-
wget -c http://softwaresuspend.berlios.de/fedora/010-2.6.10-1.741-to-
wget -c http://softwaresuspend.berlios.de/fedora/990-2.6.10-1.741-to-

Applying 010-2.6.10-1.741-to- ...
010-2.6.10-1.741-to- will not apply cleanly. Reverse applied patches [Yn]?
Reversing patches...

Nothing happenes please suggest ... I guess I should patch by hand ... ...

That's odd, it worked fine for me a couple of weeks ago.

I habitually make a copy of the Fedora patched sources in /usr/src and work there (because I also update the ibm_acpi from the included 0.8 to 0.10 and pare the config to only provide for the hardware I actually have, etc.). I can't see why "apply"ing in the rpm build tree would be any different from "apply"ing in an exact clone in /usr/src/.

BUT, even presuming that they apply cleanly (in the rpm build tree), the problem then would be that you would have a new kernel-2.6.10-1.760_FC3.i686.rpm that would *NOT* be a *Fedora* * Core* kernel-2.6.10-1.760_FC3.i686.rpm.

IMHO, better to follow the http://softwaresuspend.berlios.de/fedora/ instructions _exactly_ and just build & install a custom kernel from /usr/src/ w/o mixing it up with the rpm packages. As Warren points out, Extras is not the right place to be introducing patched versions of the Core kernels.

In any case, for 2.6.10-1.760_FC3, you need the two new patches which should be appearing at http://softwaresuspend.berlios.de/fedora/ RSN. Let me know out of band, Kevin, if you're brave/foolish enough to want them directly w/o before they've been vetted by someone other than me.
