Has anyone successfully done apm hibernation with an older toshiba
such as a satellite pro 400/430 (around a 1-2GB drive, p100/120)?
What's the correct setup?
I'm trying to find out exactly how it should work. I've seen some
places say it needs its own partition (ala lphdisk) and other
places say it needs a FAT32 partition with the file C:\toshhiber.dat.
And some places say it needs the partition at the end of the drive and
other places at the beginning. And even more places say it must be
max memory + video memory + 1MB of size at least.
I looked on their site, and they say it uses the file on a FAT
partition created with their utility "halloc /c", but I'm concerned
that they don't keep the FAQs updated for older products.
And the question remains, should it be on the first or fourth
I read through the i386 laptop list, misc@ archives, and openbsd-mobile
archives and some apm hibernations seem to work with OpenBSD and
others dont. If I do "apm -z" it will hibernate and I can resume
(back to X even), but other times it returns with a messed up
console because it dumps the memory image somewhere else (I
backed up before trying it of course).
This is something I could try out (and have), but I want to know
for sure that I'm doing the right procedure or it may just look
like it worked because it wrote to my swap partition the first
Thanks in advance.
