Is it me, or does the new 4.14.12 in the 4.14-0 package sit for a while, spit out a "gave up waiting for suspend/resume device" and then boot normally? Maybe I just didn't notice it with the 4.13...

its you. :happy:

seriously though

it could be but its probably not the kernel, but it might be related to other things. I'm running 4.14.12 with no issues like that.

have you reformatted your swap partition lately? if you would like to diagnose the resume issue, please start another thread.

Sure thing, and sorry for the faux-pas.
Might be related to the encrypted swap, but I will check when I am back in front of the machine when I get home.

Just reporting that Liquorix 4.14-12 from MX Test Repo works fine with Virtualbox on my PC.

Oops, on MX15/16.

Good news. intel-microcode updated to 20171215 version.
...after reboot I have:

Code: Select all

 dmesg | grep "microcode updated early to"
[    0.000000] microcode: microcode updated early to revision 0x1c, date = 2015-02-26

is it ok?
Edit: I guess my cpu just didn't get new microcode. Anyhow v.20180108 is on the way and in debian sid repo already https://packages.debian.org/search?keyw ... -microcode

In my experience the Liquorix 64 bit kernel from the test repo causes a very long pause while booting and one time it froze and then unfroze after a while pushing keyboard keys and the mouse. Changing it to the MX-17 kernel 4.14.0-12.1-liquorix-amd64 x86_64 corrected that issue. Now it boots great.

In the end, I just disabled system suspend with the noresume flag in grub. Problem solved.
