Good.

I should explain more. This will hibernate your machine in
kernel space. It lacks most of the features s2disk provides,
but a bare bones hibernation should work.

If this works, we know s2disk itself is buggy.
If this works, the kernel causes the problem.

To do when? Before sending the PC into hibernate? 

Instead of.

If so, your best option is to bisect the kernel if you are using
i915.

There is a fundamental misunderstanding. I'm a user, and Tumbleweed
was 
supposed to be a »rolling release«. I have no idea how to bisect a
kernel.

Your problem is limited to your hardware. I can hibernate.
Presumably most people can, as we would have more reports otherwise.
Problems specific to some hardware OpenQA cannot catch.

Neither can I or anybody without your kind of hardware bisect
the kernel. For us hibernate works under all kernel releases.

You may say »don't shoot the messenger« and indeed I don't aim at
you, but at 
the Tumbleweed project:

- kmail / akonadi crashes since December 16th, there have been a
couple of 
bugreports, see e.g. here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37473
4 The 
state of the KDE development didn't yet allow to take care, the bug
still is 
»unconfirmed«. 

- s2disk stopped working, not for the first time

- plasma used to freeze, maybe this was solved yesterday

This is not good enough for a rolling release, given other outages. 

I really guess that people at Suse do their very best to iron out all
the bugs 
which come from upstream, be it intel or kde. But if a new version of
an intel 
i915 driver is crap or a KDE update unreliable, you can't release it
in a 
rolling release. 

I cannot speak for KDE. For i915 testing needs real hardware.
If you want I can try to explain how bisecting is done.

Oliver
