I use a near mainline kernel 2.6.20.x. Just the most vitial bugfixing applied.

s2ram is a user-space "tool" that can do some graphic chip POSTing
thru BIOS calls, using the usual vm86 emulation layers.

Yeah - that's also where s2ram is mentioned as help to get "VGA"
cards POSTed after resume.

Well, now as 3D desktop resume appears to work (just tested 3 times in a
row) that's more important even for me (as a programmer) than a resuming
text console. Transparent rxvt-unicodes are more fun anway :-)

Thanks again for the great driver - yours,
