Hi All,

I've brought life back to an elderly Packard Bell EasyNote laptop (inxi -F report below) by ditching Windows and installing Peppermint.

All tickedy-boo except for the suspend/resume function - it would hang on resume.

I worked through the quirks for pm-suspend and found the last one: --quirk-save-pci fixed the problem. Great.

But I haven't found out how to make the quirk permanent. Can somebody help me out?
Thanks,
Ralph

Sadly - it seems I spoke too soon. Although it does resume with the --quirk-save-pci setting, the desktop is not stable.

Some apps close unexpectedly and sometimes the desktop goes and a screen full of text appears.

Rats. Thought I had that one sorted.....

Well I can tell you how to add the quirk.

create a file at

/etc/pm/config.d/my-quirk

and make it read

ADD_PARAMETERS="--quirk-save-pci"

Not that it's going to help you though

Hey - thanks for that. Good to know how to do it, even if it's not a full solution.

Since this one has almost got me there, maybe I should try adding secondary quirks too? Can use more than one? I'll have a play with it and see what happens.....

Can't say I've ever tried it but I don't think you can mix them .. or rather I don't think it advisable .. but your call.
