This test case tests whether suspend / resume works successfully with the Radeon video driver, with kernel mode setting enabled. You must be using a card supported by the Radeon video driver. Your system must be capable of suspending and resuming normally (for instance, it worked in previous Fedora releases).

How to test

  1. Ensure the 'nomodeset' kernel parameter is not enabled in your bootloader configuration (unless you need it for basic X operation to suceed)
  2. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a known-good configuration file that uses the 'radeon' driver
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  4. Remove the file /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/90chvt (or /usr/lib64/pm-utils/sleep.d/90chvt on x86-64 installations)
  5. Suspend the system (for e.g. left click the battery icon and click 'suspend')
  6. Resume the system

Expected Results

  1. The system should come back with the display correct and at the correct resolution, backlight active, etc.
