suspend/hibernate and ati driver issues

Postby rootkowski on Mon Jul 02, 2007 8:22 pm

Hello!

Recently I have installed Cassandra on my two computers (both me and my wife love it!!!) - a stationary (athlon64 3200+, nvidia 6600 512 mb) and on a laptop (HP pavilion zv 5206, Celeron 2800, ATI 9000 IGP with shared memory up to 128mb). On both machines I have the same issue - the screen just never comes back only stays black. To put the system to suspend or hibernate works fine, the waking is the problem. I've been looking on different forums and found nothing, no solution, though a lot of people seem to have the same issue.

An additional problem with the laptop is that I cannot even install ATI drivers through Envy or Restricted Drivers Manager. Envy returns an error saying the driver does not support my hardware and RDM says I don't need any driver. I'm not saying I do need one, I only tried to install it hoping the suspend thing would work then. Well, it doesn't.

I hope someone has a solution or if not that the developers will solve it eventually. :)

Your ATI card is supported only by the open source ati driver. In other words you don't have to install anything else.

Welcome to Mint rootkowski
Well I'd write to the forum if I managed to get out of hibernate/suspend in good working order - regardless of operating system.
ATI is not happy with Linux and as tseliot states there's nothing to install
(Funny - that post appeared after I begun this answer :))

Thank you for your replies. I simply couldn't figure it out myself whether I need a driver or not. And I guess to solve the suspend issue is just to wait :-)

Thanks a lot, tseliot! Tack sÃ¥ jätte mycket, Husse! I feel welcome on this forum :)
