suspend/resume madness with Fedora 7 test 4 on HP Compaq nx7300

I got suspend to work! But I only got it working with Rawhide Live CD 20050517 !
If you wish you can see the track of this epochal endeavor her:
Rawhide Live CD 20050517 uses kernel 2.6.21-1.3163 and suspend/resume
work flawlessly with these quirks:
pm-suspend --quirk-vbe-post --quirk-vbemode-restore
I suspected my fedora 7 test 4 was the problem when I managed to get
suspend/resume working on a few laptops with not too much trouble with
rawhide live cd. I guess that kernel is to blame or my installation
got tainted in some way. So I decided that my laptop also deserves
sterile test environment.
So to conclude:
- rmmod iwl3945 (if you don't remove this module first there is no way
to suspend/resume your system)
- don't test with Fedora 7 test 4 installed on your hdd
- instead use Fedora 7 live CD for suspend/resume troubleshooting
- live cd is much easier on the hardware because freezing a running
system with mounted partitions can potentially cause data loss and
errors on your partitions
- disable Virtualisation in bios if you have it
- quirks page is not that bad as I bashed it in the beginning, sorry Richard :)
this got my system to suspend/resume - but still installed version
doesn't resume from suspend. I'll wait for official Fedora 7 and try
Ritchard should I send these quirks for nx7300 even if it works only
under live cd environment?
here is lshal listing for my laptop:
