Is there a reasonably reliable "safe" way to do this?

I have hibernation working on the mainstream kernel but resume is miserably slow so I'm trying to migrate to tuxonice.

My understanding is that tuxonice can do uswsusp so that would seem the most straightforward way to start. I would change just the kernel, make sure everything works before I start messing with configuration which may break hibernation.

tuxonice-4.5.2 clean boots fine. But when I hibernate and resume, things go South.

It actually does resume, despite the screens of kernel errors. However, the machine soon locks up.

pf-sources user here. When I installed pf-sources I didn't have hibernation set, but I just configured the new kernel and everything went file.

At the moment of installation, pf-sources says this:

Code:
- sys-apps/tuxonice-userui: provides minimal userspace progress
information related to suspending and resuming process.
- sys-power/hibernate-script or sys-power/pm-utils: runtime utilities
for hibernating and suspending your computer."


Hope that helps.

More details:

If I attempt to hibernate using tuxonice facility, I get a kernel panic.

I hibernate using s2disk, hibernate works fine but I get a panic I when I resume.

The behavior is the same for tuxonice-4.5.2 and tuxonice-4.4.5

This is disappointing, to put it mildly. What's the point of using tuxonice if hibernate doesn't work?

Interestingly, the 4.7 series of pf-sources no longer includes tuxonice.

The version of pf-sources in portage is 4.4-p8. This version does include tuxonice and it crashes in the same way as the dedicated tuxonice kernels.

ese002 ...

I have probably experienced the same when using a 4.x series kernel, and am fairly sure where the issue lies. Am I correct in thinking your architecture is x86?

Note that without TOI_REPLACE_SWSUSP=y you may find that whatever userland (s2disk) you're using doesn't function properly, I would consider using hibernate-script, at least for testing, as there may be some incompatibility involved unrelated to tuxonice.

Thanks, khayyam.

Architecture is AMD64

TOI_REPLACE_SWSUSP=y for all tuxonice kernels

And, actually I have been using hibernate_script to test entering hibernate using tuxonice.

ese002 ... I see, I was thinking the reason was the changes made due to x86 snapshot.c failing to compile. The contributed patches that were finally included in tuxonice 2016-04-21 (or prehaps sometime before) fixed the compilation (at least on 4.x series kernels) but (so I thought) introduced the above segfault. The fact that you also have issues suggests it may be something other than this. Unfortunately I wasn't keeping track of what specific kernel's, and patches, I'd tried at the time, but I wasn't able to get any 4.x kernel working ... I remember that much.

Have you tried a 3.12.60 with tuxonice-for-linux-3.12.58-2016-04-21.patch.bz2? (all patches can be found here). This is the kernel I'm currently using and hibernate works.

Is the patched kernel different from sys-kernel/tuxonice-sources-3.12.58? This one is actually worse than 4.5.2 and 4.4.5 in that s2disk hangs. tuxonice hangs like the other two.

Some possible differences:
I'm running software raid (mdadm) mirrored everything including swap. I'm also using EFI boot, though it is hard to see how that could be a factor.

From refind.conf:

menuentry tuxonice-4.5.2 {
icon EFI/BOOT/icons/os_gentoo.icns
loader vmlinuz-4.5.2-tuxonice
initrd initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-4.5.2-tuxonice
options "ro root=/dev/md22 domdadm rootfstype=ext4 real_init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd resume=swap:/dev/md23"
}
