As reported earlier, swsusp v19 is slower than v16 and can cause kernel oopses. Well, it seems that the work that Nigel Cunningham has done on v19 yields much better results. Apply all patches (patch-beta19-01 up to and including patch-beta19-06) over swsusp v19 to enjoy some of this goodness.
The magic combination is now: Linux 2.4.21-pre5, acpi 20030228, swsusp v19, Nigel’s 19-01 to 19-06, my khubd thread killer workaround and my DRI resume patches.
See, it all Just Works(tm). Ha ha.
