Suspend on Dell D620 running Fedora 8 Linux.

Suspend

This post is updated on 10/23/2015 from the original 7/10/2008 post.

Introduction

I desperately need to mention how I got suspend using my nVidia card to work on my Dell D620 Latitude.

Update:  The quirk causing the suspend issue was an apparently standard problem with many laptops and that variant of the Fedora/Redhat kernel.  The solution was found at http://klamstwo.org/evad/archives/55.  However, that link is now defunct.

Suspend

A better link to referencing for fixing the suspend issue would be my article http://realsuddenlike.com/suspend-on-d630-with-fedora-9/ that actually references the same dead link above.  However, I go into much greater detail in that article

 

Conclusion

The solution referenced is in fact the solution that worked multiple times for me.  In fact, I referenced it in my blog to help address suspend issues for me on multiple laptops in the older Latitude series.  I hope this helps readers as well.
