This test case tests whether suspend / resume works successfully with the Nouveau video driver, with kernel mode setting enabled. You must be using a video adapter supported by the driver, and Rawhide. Your system must be capable of suspending and resuming normally (for instance, with 'nouveau.modeset=0 3' kernel parameter to disable nouveau from interacting with the video adapter).

How to test

  1. Ensure the 'nomodeset' and 'nouveau.modeset=0' kernel parameters are not enabled in your bootloader configuration
  2. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a known-good configuration file that uses the 'nouveau' driver
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  4. Suspend the system (for e.g. left click the battery icon and click 'suspend')
  5. Resume the system

Expected Results

  1. The system should come back with the display correct and at the correct resolution, backlight active, etc.
