TuxOnIce. Revolutionise the way you start your computer.

A new release is ready for download. This version fixes issues with hibernating to logical volumes. With this version, if your system has a swap partition, you should no longer need to provide a resume= parameter on the command line. TuxOnIce will automatically set the resume= parameter to the first swap partition it finds, unless it finds an image header on another swap partition (in which can it will resume using that partition's information). This applies even if you only use file based storage, because the block that resume= points to is ONLY used to tell us where to find the start of the image proper. This swap device doesn't even have to be swapon'd when you start to hibernate for this functionality to work correctly.

Please report any problems with 3.0.99.44 on the TuxOnIce mailing lists. Nigel hopes to do a 3.1 release in the near future, and would love to get bugs squashed beforehand!

TuxOnIce 3.0.99.41 has been released. This is a new test release as we prepare for 3.1. This release addresses all bugs found since last week's 3.0.99.32 release.

TuxOnIce 3.0.99.32 has been released. This is a test release as we prepare for 3.1. It adds support for UUIDs, and includes a big rework of the lowlevel I/O code to clean things up and let you use swap and a file together (treat a file as a fallback for swap or viceversa). The UUID support brings us one step closer to having our Ubuntu PPA installation be as simple as apt-get install and reboot!

Looking to use TuxOnIce on your new Karmic installation? Just add the TuxOnIce PPA (ppa:tuxonice/ppa) and you'll be in business in no time. No compilation required! Jaunty and Intrepid PPAs are also being regularly updated.

Until 3.0.2 comes out, patches for newer kernels can be found on the All Downloads page.

This release fixes some problems with the allocation of storage for the image header in 3.0. It also fixes longstanding issues that prevented us from being able to use the LZO and deflate cryptoapi algorithms. Since LZO is now usable in 2.6.25 and later kernels, LZF support has been removed from these patches and LZO made the default.

New major releases of TuxOnIce, the hibernate script and the TuxOnIce userspace user interface ('userui') were released today. TuxOnIce author Nigel Cunningham described the new releases as "a significant step forward in Linux Power Management".

Hibernation is a small but significant part of the Linux experience. There is a lot of emphasis being placed on reducing the boot time of Linux at the moment. Reducing hibernation time is equally important, because hibernation adds the element of state persistance that fresh boots lack, without the reliance on the battery that suspend to ram implies. This new TuxOnIce release contributes signifi
