Kernel upgrade (:latest) breaking suspend with AMDGPU

Hello @here! (or is @there?!)

I am somewhat new to fedora… Well, actually I’ve just recently installed the f40 and never really did use it before with exception of short period some 10 years ago when my class was given a DVD of it (could you believe it?! :wink:)

Can you please share your ideas with me on this problem? :slight_smile:

BEHAVIOR: Computer seemingly doesn’t suspend. Keyboard/mouse light is on. Fans keep going. Activity LED is shining (instead of blinking). No video output, no reaction to any shortcuts/presses/shouting/insults leaving the computer open for hard reset (AFAIK)

I might’ve stumbled into a pickle that I am unable to solve myself.
3 days ago I did run $ sudo dnf upgrade --refresh (knowing possible consequences) and ended up going from kernel 6.8.11-300 --> kernel-6.9.4-200

Did anyone face something similar? Any educated guesses whether I might be on the right track? Anything appreciated really! Also ask of me anything and I shall provide! :slight_smile:

I didn’t try any special workaround in particular due to not being able to google anything sensible.

Removed optical-media, radeon

Hi can you try to boot the previous kernel? And if you can’t, or just want to check on 6.9.4, try pressing escape key when seemingly hung after suspend, to get the text output of the resume command. If it’s waiting indefinitely then you need to modify one of your kernel arg’s. If you can boot into the previous kernel then you will need to modify the commandline arguements

Thanks for the quick reply (much appreciated :slight_smile: )

Switched to older kernel

uname -r                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

When I go to suspend now, monitors go immediately blank and followed by “no signal” quite fast.

There is no response to pressing escape. (I assume we’d like to see terminal output)
However the system doesn’t really go to suspend…

But there is big change - System returns to desktop after a while

Hi please try cat /proc/cmdline then post the result here using the </> button

It’s worth mentioning that I have this problem both with and without amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffffffff (tested that one)

I doubt this is specific to Fedora, so you should report this issue at
