lemme pop back into the shell of a newb...

heres the thing. i have seen mentioned everywhere, but cannot seem to find specific instructions (or even general ones) on how to get the following working:

sleep on ibook g3, kernel 2.6.7

with a working kernel, support for everything i needed i think.... and when i close the lid on the laptop, it freezes... only done this a few times (need osx for internet anyway, so reboot alot)... so i havent tested by way of ssh whether the computrer is frozen, or just the screen. the point is, sleep is not working.

how to get read (and write) access for hfs+ filesystems, i enabled hfs+ in the kernel section for filesystems, but when i try to mount (whether with traditional mount -t hfs /dev/blah /mnt/macosx , or the sort of strange hmount) i only get the small README file that tells you to install a mac os....

i do not have journalling enabled..

hopefully this can be very clearly cleared up (because i know both are possible)

any kernel options, plus apps/ necesary configuration would be handy

thanks,

killfire

You will need to emerge and configure pbbuttonsd and add it to your bootlevel.

You are mounting an hfs+ partition as hfs. Whenever you do this you see a file explaining why you can't access your data like that (pretty user-friendly engineering by apple again :)
What you have to do is specify hfsplus as the partition type:
Code:
mount -t hfsplus /dev/blah /mnt/macosx


hth,

In short: disable 'Symmetric multi-processing support' and 'Preemptible Kernel' to get sleep working.

You don't happen to be running "mol" when you tried the sleep? I noticed that when i run mol, my G3 iBook will go to sleep, but doesn't wanna wake up.

i have installed pbbuttonsd, configured it (thats how i did in 2.4)... i also disabled smp (as i dont have dual processors) .. before i posted here....

ill try to check preemptive kernell....

[EDIT]
checked, and i think this is the corresponding code:
Code:

# CONFIG_SMP is not set
# CONFIG_PREEMPT is not set
# CONFIG_HIGHMEM is not set
CONFIG_KERNEL_ELF=y


so it seems that those are not set, either preempt or smp....

ill try again, i only tested this once or twice, and i may have recompiled my kernel since....

[/EDIT]

the hfs+ partitions were my mistake, i actually noticed it in a post after posting this....

i think the problem was that i had seen that mount supported hfs+, written like that, so i assumed that was the type that they used.....

thanks for the replies, will check back up on the kernel settings.
