Re: Alternative to using swap for hibernating

You can try:
if you're using custom kernels or
if you wish to use Fedora kernels.

suspend2 is able to use swap partitions, swapfiles and even normal files.

I finally found the clue in /var/log/messages:

Apr 11 23:57:55 lc2440 kernel: swsusp: Not enough free swap
Apr 11 23:57:55 lc2440 kernel: Restarting tasks … done.
Apr 11 23:57:55 lc2440 kernel: Enabling non-boot CPUs …

So, it can't fit the contents of RAM into swap.

This laptop has 2GB of ram.  I've partitioned the drive with a 512MB swap.

Now, I don't really feel like blowing 2GB of my laptop's hard drive on an
essentially useless swap partition.  Besides, it's a bit too late for me to

Do I have any other ways to get hibernation working?
