Lubuntu kinetic not reviving from suspend with new 5.19.5 kernel?


Had some issues with kinetic not upgrading the kernel, got that straightened out . . . today was “Lubuntu” day running the newer 5.19.5 kernel and two times when I had suspended the machine, when I clicked the keyboard to revive, the machine started running, but the display did not??

Happened one time before running some apt dist-upgrades and one time after. Mainline showed a new 5.19.11 kernel as “available,” but, as it is only one click newer than 5.19.5 I didn’t install it . . . .

Possibly this might be a “bug” . . . the question is, where is it??

How did you straighten out the problem with the kernel not being updated in Kinetic? I have that problem now, described here Lubuntu Kinetic - Kernel not updating, still on 5.15.0-46


I’m responding over here . . . so in my case the situation was a bit “complicated” because I have a multi-boot set up, with a SUSE OS as the grub controller, but Lubuntu/Ubuntu likes to be in charge of grub . . . so there was “conflict” and that meant Lu decided it didn’t want to play with the other kids.

I got some feedback as well on the lubuntu list serve, but what I had to do was to “edit” grub to show the 5.19 kernel which is like a one time thing, you have to manually do it each time. I used “mainline” which is a console app to install the newer kernel, but still grub wasn’t selecting it, so I had to edit grub to boot the newer kernel, then use mainline to remove the older kernel . . . and then go to the controller system and update grub.

Possibly if you only have one system on grub you might just run “sudo update-grub” . . . but you have to have the newer kernel installed to get grub to “see” it and select it to boot.

About OS not returning from suspend is high percentage the problem is related with video and BIOS.
What is your video card ?

I forgot to check this problem yesterday when I booted Lubuntu, I was in a hurry . . . ran an apt update and shut down.

It has an Nvidia card GT780??? likely running “nouveau” driver. I’m not using proprietary, because they don’t keep up with the newest kernels . . . .

You are using what kernel version ?
Have an patch working for binary driver compatible with kernel 6.0.

I believe that Lubuntu is running 5.19.5 kernel right now. When I get a chance I’ll try to click it up to 6.0 and give it a run. Prolly be a couple of days, lots of “stuff” going on right now.
