Looks like Suspend2 (http://www.suspend2.net/) is headed for the mm and
then mainline kernel (finally!). It's been working rather good for a
while now and it would be great if FC5 kernels had it once the release
hits the mirrors. I'm guessing most notebook (even desktop) users would
There are already excellent examples of those patches inside FC3/FC4/FC5
kernels as well as related stuff like mkinitrd, sysinit etc. here:
Would Fedora kernel maintainers be willing to roll Suspend2 into the
I have also seen this on my C610. The problem seems to be related to
kernel versions 2.6.12 [inc: kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4]. I switched back
to 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 and it fixed the problem. It seems to be something
in the way ACPI is detected/registering the power feature set.

Anyone know which library defines this symbol?
On FC3, with all updates applied, vte's python binding is broken:
Python 2.3.4 (#1, Feb 2 2005, 12:11:53)
[GCC 3.4.2 20041017 (Red Hat 3.4.2-6.fc3)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import vte
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
undefined symbol: pyg_set_object_has_new_constructor
Googling suggests that this symbol was defined in earlier versions of
pygtk2, but not in the current one. Now, there is an update from pygtk2
2.4.0 to 2.4.1 in FC3, but I can't imagine a minor update would get rid of a
symbol, like that.
it appears that there is no shared libpthread or libdl on x86_64. The
lack of these shared libraries is causing applications linking against
-lgc to fail with undefined symbols.
Can anyone confirm this (I don't have access to any x86_64 box)? Is
this on purpose or a (glibc) bug?
Since yesterday I can't update my machine. On download.fedora.redhat.com
at least the cyrus-sasl-plain package can't be downloaded, it seems the
wrong permissions got mirrored.
PS: Am I the only one to use rawhide on x86_64?!

Until about a month ago, i was able to suspend my laptop perfectly using
ACPI. Then there was a kernel update, emptying the /proc/acpi folder -
no more "echo "3" > /proc/acpi/sleep". Strange thing is, ACPI in general
seems to work very well (fan control, battery level etc) - but i have no
interface to readout CPU temps etc. and set the computer into standby
Has there been an interface change i am unaware of? This is happening on
two different machines - one running fc4 (a compaq evo n600c) and
another running rawhide (a dell lattitude c600).
I have created a bug report, but it hasn't recived any attension. So
yes, i admit sending this mail hoping that somebody would look into it
