If you're having trouble providing requested information or sufficient
context for a bug, the qa list (test(a)lists.fp.o) might be a good place to
ask for help. Also remember that different symptoms may share and
underlying cause, wrt duplicate marked bugs.
Basically, problems that are not reported are less likely to be fixed.
What you do with that is up to you. The best way to have an answer to your
question is to file a bug and see it through, or if it's a common problem,
find a bug already filed and CC yourself. You could ask for help here in
remedying the issue, and determining if configuration or code are at
If you don't want to file a bug, fine; if you don't want to continue the
discussion about configuration, that's fine too. Do consider the audience
you sent this mail to, though. It isn't the power management subsystem
developer community, and even if it were, I don't think what you're doing
would be motivating.
I agree, I have to say, BZ has been very good in most of my cases: however, it also
depends on the respondent. An example of a bug not having been fixed is the one on
ssh-agent not started in LXDE which has been pending since F14 -- I gave up on lxdm and
replaced it with slim. (Lately, I have gone away from using any DE so this is not at all
an issue anymore for me).
Btw, I always thought that this hibernate not enabled by default without hoops was a
decision (feature) of Fedora maintainers since F20 and not really a reportable bug. But it
would help to get it reversed. (Why should a feature which exists in the kernel be
disabled by default? -- linux is supposed to be about the ability to do stuff...not
meaning to start a war here, but it really needs revisiting).
So, please go ahead and report it: you may well be pleasantly surprised.
