is it possible to run powersave on slackware?
it should be possible, although i have not tried it. I am very interested in fixing powersave to run on other distributions. Have you tried to compile it?
You should use a recent 2.6 kernel to use the suspend features, though.
In other words: it is not deliberately designed "SUSE only", but it was not widely tested on other distributions.
If you tell us how to get powersave (and maybe also kpowersave) running, we can try to provide also slackware packages!
I've made a slackware pkg,is not perfect
but works,please check my slackbuild and tell me
if i made something wrong.
Port is broken..i need some help for the sleep script,it point to /etc/init.d for service and use this syntax "$X status" where X is name of service of course this dont work in slackware,if someone want a good port,provide please a patch
for stopping services on slackware
I installed the last days Slackware 10.2. I update the next days to current packages and take then a look at your port and the problems. But because of release SUSE 10.1 RC1 and KPowersave stable I think I can take a look at this first end of next week.
I fixed the package
now works correct(scripts point to rc.d instead of inet.d).
I have some problems but i think they are related to my kernel and/or hw.
Update slackware package to last version
for current only,for 10.2,use slackbuild.
Updated to latest version 0.12.17
Updated to latest version 0.12.18
Same link as usual
Updated to version 0.12.20
Updated to 0.12.21
Upgraded to 0.14.0
i've tested it with current and latest
Suspend2disk and standby works perfectly
suspend2ram don't work(nvidia driver don't support it..)but at least don't crash
Thanks for very good software
