My experience with an HP Pavilion tx2500 and karmic.
Please tell me if you find errors, missing information or a “more institutional” wiki to host this page: toobaz [at] email [dot] it.
NOTICE THAT THIS PAGE IS VERY MUCH A WORK IN PROGRESS: THE PAGE ON JAUNTY IS MORE COMPLETE - THOUGH INFORMATIONS IT CONTAINS COULD OBVIOUSLY NOT BE VALID FOR KARMIC - YOU CAN FIND IT HERE
The module r8169, which drives the RTL8111/8168B card, is affected by bug 12296: after suspend/resume, the dhcp will stop working.
A workaround consists in creating a file “/etc/pm/sleep.d/25_r8169” with the following content:
#!/bin/bash case "$1" in hibernate|suspend) # Remove the r8169 module rmmod r8169; ;; thaw|resume) # Remodprobe the r8169 module modprobe r8169; ;; *) ;; esac exit $?
The dsdt of the BIOS (I have no idea of what it is) is flawed, and thinks only Windows is eligible to access it; while under Karmic the problem could be solved by following this procedure, now because of (non-) bug 395239, the procedure stopped working.
The “solution” is probably to recomplile the kernel, but I didn't try.
