A big thank you to those involved in power management development

A couple of month ago, my step-father-in-law encountered quite some problems with the Windows installation on his Notebook and therefore showed a great interest in dem Linux da. So we installed him a Debian in a dual-boot setting.

It was interesting to see how a basic school teacher (who is technical interested, but has no deeper technical knowledge of computers) worked with Linux, what problems he found, and how he solved them. But a big obstacle for him to work more or less entirely with Linux has always been power management problems with his notebook. To be more precise: While it was always possible to send his notebook into suspend or hibernate, it was also always impossible to wake the notebook up again. It seems that the (non-free but needed) NVidia driver was a part of the problem.

Last weekend we again tried to solve the problem by installing the latest backported kernel and updating the NVidia driver, but failed again. So we decided, that with the squeeze being frozen for quite some time, it would be safe to upgrade his Notebook to that system.

And believe it or not: It works! We can suspend the notebook without any problems and it will wake up again! And to his (and our) special delight waking the notebook up is a lot faster, than it used to be with his Windows (Vista?) installation. Not to mention that for some reason a suspended Linux-System seems to consume less power (he lend some kind of energy consumption measuring device from his power company to track energy saving potential, and while playing around, we also measured his notebook), than the suspended Windows on the very same system!

I don't know why, but finally the installation of dem Linux da was a complete success :) So kudos to those who worked on that area :)

Recent RC-Bug activity

Well, recently I didn't had that much time to squash RC bugs , too.. In the entire October I got the following things done:

  1. Fixed bug #595313 -- An installation problem with nagvis
  2. Fixed bug #598614 -- A FTBFS by inactivity timeout on mips simply by not building arch independent data
  3. Fixed bugs #567770 and #572465 -- one FTBFS and one upgrade problem with enlightment; well... strictly speaking... The upgrade problem was a result of my previous NMU if that package, and the FTBFS was a trivial change of the build-depends (for which someone already submitted a patch).
  4. Commented on #591118 -- An unreproducible FTBFS under certain circumstances, no one could exactly find out so far; but at least I could help to verify that the problem has disappeared with the package in experimental

Hui, it seems I haven't done that much. But I think my examples shows, that there are still some very easy bugs left to be squashed or at least comment.
