After 5 long years using gentoo only, i'm back in ubuntu land. I am FED UP with all of the broken packages in gentoo. They have some great things going but it's just not usable, it's a really bi-polar experience. I spent more time messing around with the OS then just using it to get things done.

Anyway, ubuntu server 10.10 installed with minimal complication. Some pulseaudio/alsa conflict issues early on that were mostly my fault, otherwise working great. Except


just blanks the screen, fans stay spinnning, power supply never kicks down. Have to switch the power supply off. :(


works 100%. everything, sound, net, libvirt, comes back just perfectly. :guitar:

Any ideas about pm suspend?

nvidia drivers, gtx 570, intel i7950, asus p6x58d-e. I do not have ubuntu-desktop and gnome installed (just fluxbox), so commands instead of 'click control panel' would be good :)

It's good to be back, ubuntu is polished - _almost shiny. I hope that lord hunter dbag is gone from these forums, I really didn't care for that guy. :P

bump. i didnt change anything. I tried suspend again, and surprise it actually went to suspend OK. So the failure there may be due to something I have running.

However, it still failed to resume - just black screens. :confused: pm-hibernate works very well no matter what.
