I have lately moved my ruby to another framework (MetaSploit in specific) from Ruby on Rails. Dont mistake me, i am still Ruby on rails fan. As i set up my backtrack 5, the system sometimes hibernate and when i want to resume the system could not hence forcing me to cold reboot.
I came across a bunch of ideas on different forums on the internet but there is one that worked like a charm. If you are undergoing the same problem kindly follow the following simple steps. Copyright to BackTrack .
1. Open /boot/grub/grub.cfg in nano
2. find following line
3. Insert resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/<your swap disk UUID> before the ‘ro text splash vga=’ . It should look lite this
/boot/vmlinuz-3.2.6 root=UUID=<your disk uuid> resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/<your swap disk UUID goes here> ro text splash vga=791
Do not forget to replace <your swap disk UUID goes here> with actual UUID of your swap disk.
Save and exit. Now hibernate your system and boot again, it should start resuming from hibernate.
