Description Richard Hughes 2005-09-22 16:32:29 UTC
Description of problem: pm-utils has hibernate and suspend scripts that work really well in a fedora core rawhide system. It does not have a script to change the various vm arguments like the script laptop-tools does, e.g. echo $DISK_IDLE_SECS > /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): pm-utils-0.04-1 Additional info: HAL will call this script for SetLowPower() dbus methods that is invoked on *only* laptops.

Created attachment 119149 [details] Example file that could be used in pm-utils
Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2005-09-28 16:52:47 UTC
Should this be a blocker for FC5?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-28 17:03:09 UTC
It's on the target list for FC5.
Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2006-02-11 15:05:20 UTC
Any news? FC5t3 will be out soon, and it's simply a case of adding one file to a package... This single file makes laptop-mode tools obsolete, and also means gnome-power-manager doesn't spit out errors from hal about no LowPowerMode script. Hal currently looks for pm-powersave, so if the new script is called that name, then it will just work with HAL. If you change the name to something like pm-laptopmode, then I can trivially patch HAL - it's up to you. SuSE already support laptop-mode by default in the powersaved package.

Bill, Phil, could we put this in? It makes a lot of sense to include it and it seems like pretty low risk.
Comment 6 David Zeuthen 2006-02-23 21:44:01 UTC
Ping? Can we do this please? It seems like extremely low risk since a number of our competitors is already doing this.
Comment 7 Phil Knirsch 2006-02-24 08:41:13 UTC
Yeah, will put it in today. Read ya, Phil
Comment 8 Richard Hughes 2006-02-24 17:09:46 UTC
What's the script called, then I can send a patch for HAL. Thanks for doing this.
Comment 9 David Zeuthen 2006-02-24 17:49:27 UTC
I've already fix hal upstream. The hal-0.5.7-1 Fedora package will include this patch. --- hal-system-power-set-power-save 2005/11/29 17:47:54 1.4 +++ hal-system-power-set-power-save 2006/02/24 16:47:11 1.5 @@ -25,10 +25,10 @@ elif [ -f /etc/redhat-release ] || [ -f /etc/fedora-release ] ; then if [ -x "/usr/sbin/pm-powersave" ] ; then if [ $value = "true" ]; then - /usr/sbin/pm-powersave on + /usr/sbin/pm-powersave true RET=$? elif [ $value = "false" ]; then - /usr/sbin/pm-powersave off + /usr/sbin/pm-powersave false RET=$? fi else
