Keeping track of details for a few bugs I’m seeing in current Rawhide on the new laptop:

  • S3 sleep is broken, possibly libata-wide since Jeremy is hitting the same symptoms as me (no disk access on resume) and he’s on AHCI while I’m on sd_mod and ata_piix. The symptoms are syslogd complaining that it can’t write out the journal, and lots of repeated:
sd 0:0:0:0: SCSI error: return code = 0x40000
end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 18800717
  • pccardctl eject is giving me an oops, which is new to Rawhide; looks like this is upstream, since it’s the same oops as in this lkml post.
  • The lvm(8) in my kernel-2141 initrd fails to boot, giving:
Volume group for uuid not found: (uuid)
0 logical volume(s) in volume group "group0" now active
mount: could not find filesystem /dev/root

I reverted bin/lvm in the initrd to the version found in 2136, which has the same version number but a different md5sum — that booted, so this looks like a new bug in lvm.


  1. Andy — you’re on AHCI, which hasn’t had any suspend/resume hooked up to it. The SATA suspend bits that went into 2.6.16 were, unfortunately, host controller specific and only work on ata_piix. So today’s kernel should be better in that respect. swsusp (hibernate) is working relatively nicely for me now.

    Unfortunately, something else seems to have gone stupid with libata and s3 (sleep). There are some clues on lkml that I’m hoping to look into more today or over the weekend.
