Public bug reported:
Affects: kernel-package (Ubuntu)
Priority: (none set)
EDIT: I almost forgot to mention, I'm running a clean, up-to-date
install of Dapper Beta2 installed from the disk last night. acpi
version is 0.09
In trying to get Hibernation to work on my laptop, (Compaq Presario
v2402us) I have discovered that hibernating corrupts my swap partition.
I have verified this using gparted on the live disk- before attempting to hibernate, the swap partition is on /dev/hda2, and recognized by both my normal Ubuntu system and the live disk. But, after a hibernation attempt, (which fails- more on that in a second) neither the normal system or the live disk can see /dev/hda2 as anything more than "unknown."
In my system, "sudo swapon -a" returns:
swapon: /dev/hda2: Invalid argument
To get my swap partition back, I need to reformat it wth the live CD
Specifically, when I press the "Hibernate" key In "System -> Log out,"
the computer shuts down as if hibernation is going to work. The screen
blanks, and after 30-45 seconds of continuous HDD usage, the computer
powers down as well. But, when it starts up again, it starts up without
even mentioning hibernation- no errors, nothing at all. When the normal
system is reached, swap space cannot be accessed, and /dev/hda2 is
Attached to this bug are my Syslog, /etc/default/acpi-support, and
/var/log/acpid files in the Logs.bz2 file.
