First of all, thank you very much for your work! I wanted to do it for very long time but I had no time to actually implement it. :-) > Yes, if it doesn't bother you. Hmmm, it doesn't seem related with > my SMP/i386 sleep patches. I know for sure it is not related to your patches. In fact, we cannot resume most NVIDIA controllers without NVIDIA kernel driver + binary X.org driver + VT switching hack (i.e., hw.syscons.sc_no_suspend_vtswitch=0, which is default). Also, there is ACPI_PM option for ports/x11/nvidia-driver but it doesn't help much because it doesn't seem to save/restore GPU registers by itself (off by default). Very few NVIDIA controllers can be reset with BIOS POST or saved/restored with VBE functions. Many Intel controllers have similar issues and they need kib's KMS driver. Usually, ATI/AMD controllers have no problem when (relatively recent) vesa.ko is compiled into kernel or loaded as module as they have complete VBE save/restore functions. Similarly, any video controllers with correct save/restore functions should work with vesa.ko. > Could you try also Uni-processer kernel (w/o SMP and apic from > config file) without my patches? > >> OTOH, IIRC the console only test (without X) without acpi_video >> lead to freeze.

Most of these Linux hacks are completely obsolete since KMS. I really don't want to reiterate Linux mistakes again.
