I'm going crazy trying to find a real way to make a Dell Latitude D600
suspend with FC2 and acpi...

When I do echo 1 > /proc/acpi/sleep , X goes away and I get some console
messages like this... ( these are from dmesg because the console
messages go by too fast... )

PM: Preparing system for suspend
Stopping tasks:
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:1d.7 to 64
Could not suspend device 0000:00:1d.7: error -5
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:1f.5 to 64
tg3: eth0: Link is down.
Restarting tasks... done
agpgart: Found an AGP 2.0 compliant device at 0000:00:00.0.
agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:00:00.0 into 1x mode
agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:01:00.0 into 1x mode
[drm] Loading R200 Microcode
tg3: eth0: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full duplex.
tg3: eth0: Flow control is off for TX and off for RX.

And then X comes back up as if nothing has happened!  I tried disabling
DRI and even setting the driver to vesa (neither of which option I like)
and it still happens the same way.

I've found references to a myserious "make x and dri not suck with
radeon" patch, but I can't seem to find it.  I'm hoping to not have to
roll my own kernel because this is for a laptop distribution project --
it's going to find it's way onto ~150 laptops so I'm trying not to have
maintain my own kernel rpms.

Please help before I get more keyprint on my forehead from slamming it
against the keyboard.


ouch. :-)
