hi , i install fedora 7 on dell 640m (core t2050, intel 945gm, bios version: A10, resolution :1280x800, ipw3945, hard disk: hitachi 80G,5400rpm)

today, i update all the packages using update depository,now the kernel is 2.6.21-1.3228, and all the problems i found are solved, except that it could not resume from suspend.

it could get to suspend correctly(LCD, hard disk led and ethnet led,etc is off, only the power led flash slowly. everything is just like suspend on windows xp ), and there is no error output on screen.

but ,when i press power button to resume, it could not funciton properly,all the thing i could notice is a sound "pa" of hard disk power on, then nothing happens, lcd is black.

i had tried to modified "fdi" for the pm-utils, but it didn't work.

does anyone has idea about this?

I have the similar problem.
From this link,I got "Please use the mac80211 based iwl3945 driver instead. ipw3945d is closed source and hangs on resume."
Anyone can help me? :confused:
Many thanks

Try the latest kernel (kernel- All my attempts to get "resume" to work failed with previous kernels. But this kernel works fine. I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 here.

I've tried kernel-, it could suspend and resume. But my iwl3945 sometimes could not connect the ap. Now I use kernel-, all things are right.

I have the same problem on my Inspiron 6000! And updating the kernel didn't work for me, I still have issues with the LCD not being reactivated when I open the lid.

As far as I know, I have the newest kernel (at least when using the package updater it doesn't register a newer one). So, is there any other way of fixing this? Help appreciated :) .

If the newest kernel could not solve your problem, maybe you can try the most experimental kernel at here: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/builds

to my experience, kernel- is a good kernel for my dell 640m.
