Hello!

I just tried the ppc-development-sources-2.6.4 on my G3 iBook 800 MHz.

It turned out that wakeup after sleep does not work: It always stops at the line
Code:
eth1:Airport waking up

Normally, the next line would be something on hda, so I guess resuming either the airport card or the harddisc does not work. At this point, a hard reboot is the only way to go.

So I am back at 2.6.2, since on 2.6.3 gphoto2 always crashes my system.

It would be nice to read the experience of other gentooers with 2.6.4.

No problems here using 2.6.4 from development-sources (i.e., the vanilla 2.6.4 sources, not ppc-development-sources) on an iBook 2.2, 800 MHz G3, 12" (likely the same as yours). Except for the modem (hcfusbmodem hasn't yet been updated to work with 2.6.x), everything works: USB (tried my bluetooth dongle and a memory 'key'), sound (dmasound_pmac still more reliable than ALSA), net (sungem and airport patched with the orinoco monitor mode patch), dm-crypt (for encrypted filesystems) -- and sleep/wake.

Re. gphoto2 -- on x86, I was having lots of problems with gphoto2 that went away when I disabled hotplug in the kernel; it's been off in my kernels ever since, both ppc and x86. Similar problems with USB devices solved the same way (disabling hotplug) are covered in various threads here, but the biggest camera-related thread is this one. Assuming it's enabled in your kernel, if you can live without hotplug, disabling it might be a fix for the problem you're having. That being said, the problems fixed by disabling hotplug weren't crashes, they were non-functioning devices. Best of luck.

Yes. Seems to be the same.

Do you have an airport card in your iBook? Do you have the airport kernel drivers activated?


Thanks for your suggestions concerning my camera.
In my kernel CONFIG_HOTPLUG is set. I compiled the kernel versions 2.6.2, 2.6.3 and 2.6.4 from the same .config file. While on 2.6.2 and 2.6.4 the camera works flawlessly, I immediately get a system freeze on 2.6.3 when I try to access the camera (via USB).

Yes and yes, including the orinoco monitor mode patch for the 0.13e driver included with 2.6.4 (see here for info, and here for a post I made elsewhere about it). No problems at all, either connecting to access points at home and work, or running kismet.

Best of luck with the camera; haven't tried mine yet with this kernel. It just struck me -- are you using the latest gphoto2/libgphoto2? Even if you are, re-emerging might help. In any case, I've had no freezes here so far (couple of weeks of using this kernel), so maybe that will give you hope. :)

Since the wakeup problem probably comes from the airport card or the hard disk, I want to ask these 2 questions:

Do you have airport support as a module or within the kernel? (The latter one for me)

Did you set the new 2.6.4 kernel parameter "generic/default IDE chipset". I didn't.


I don't care much about the camera, because it is only 2.6.3 where it doesn't work.


Thanks for the monitor patch information. I will try that some time.

As a module. The module is normally loaded (but not always), so I know sleep/wake works with the module loaded, including that the connection to the last-used wireless access point is restored on wake.

It's compiled as a module -- I chose that, 'just in case', but as it turns out I don't need it, and the module isn't loaded. Next time I configure a kernel, I'll likely disable it.

If you want to compare it with yours, here's my current kernel config, which I've used with development-sources-2.6.4 (the link will last likely as long as I use 2.6.4 on my iBook).

Well, your post made me curious, so this morning I decided to try my own camera with my iBook and 2.6.4. And: gphoto2 worked perfectly, no crash or other error. I'm using gphoto2-2.1.3, libgphoto2-2.1.3, and libusb-0.1.7-r1; the camera is a Canon PowerShot S200 (called the 'Digital Ixus' outside North America, I think). There was no crash, and no problem with sleep/wake before or after. One note: I'm not using hotplug, so I need to run gphoto2 as root.

It doesn't have any effect on normal operation of the airport card, but it's needed if you ever want to run your airport interface in promiscuous mode, i.e., for scanning with kismet or airsnort.

I'm getting the same problem with 2.6.13-r3, and had it with 2.6.12. I'm running a gentoo-sources kernel. Sleep worked when I first installed Gentoo on my iBook (16MB AGP, 700MHz), but now hangs with either the above message, or:
Code:
eth1: New link status: Connected
I did not change the kernel between when it worked and now (which was then 2.6.12). I'd hoped .13 would fix it, but it hasn't.

Does anyone have any insight for me?

Thanks!
