      Hi Daniel

      if I am not mistaken, your partition space for the s2d is aproximately
      256Mo or you have 512Mo RAM

      I would be very surprised if the s2d properly working with BIOS > A7 and

      Sujet: [linux-dell-laptops] no s2d on i8100

      hi folks,

      After a hard disk replacement, I thought that I'd finally go to the trouble
      of getting suspend to disk
      working - and trouble it has been...

      Following the procedure given in the LDL FAQ I managed to get the
      partitions set up happily using the mks2d
      command with no options. However when I attempted to s2d using Fn+a I
      received an error of insufficient
      disk space. So... I moved the windows partition back and removed the s2d
      partition and remade it a little
      larger. Now when I attempt to s2d I get an "Unrecoverable disk error".

      In both cases the behaviour is similar except for the final error message:
      after the Fn+a combo is pressed
      the Dell message screen pops up and the system writes to the disk for
      around 10s. Then the screen gets
      covered in garbage (in a low res graphics mode of some sort)... and then
      after another 10s or so the white
      Dell screen pops up again with the error.

      Has anyone had similar experiences or could shed any light on this?

      System config:
      i8100, PIII 1.13Ghz
      512Mb RAM
      32Mb GeForce2go
      20Gb IBM HDD.
      BIOS A14

      fdisk -l for my current config (complains of unrecoverable disk error):

      Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 2432 cylinders
      Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes
